Dismissing the notion that aggressive freeride boots need to be rigid and uncomfortable, Nitro developed the El Mejor TLS Snowboard Boot with the support, power, and precision needed to pick apart big-mountain lines without feeling like an overly stiff ski boot. Crucial to this boot's comfort, the Cloud 10 liner is equipped with heat-moldable Thermacell foam, latex memory pads, non-slip heel grip lining, and a triple-density Ortholite footed to provide a snug, heel lift-free fit that conforms to your foot and keeps it feeling fresh throughout the day. In the warmth department, the Therminator Shield under the liner reflects body heat back to your foot for added coziness without bulk. D30 dampening is soft under most conditions for a cushy feel, but hardens up instantly upon impact to evenly distribute force so there's no painful pressure points. Air Dampening in the heel prevents bruised heels when you overshoot a jump. The Flex Link design allows the boot to flex forward when you're tweaking grabs, without compromising lateral support. It's finished off with an ultra-rugged Vibram Icetrek sole for serious grip regardless of how cold or icy it is.
