The clear-cut favorite for the entire Nitro team, the Nitro Team TLS Snowboard boot sits on the medium-stiff end of the flex spectrum, bringing the response necessary for carving at high speeds, sending bigger jumps, and blasting through powder stashes in the trees. The boot's TLS 5 Twin lacing system quickly tightens the upper and lower zones independently to help you find a fine-tuned fit with the quick, simple pull of each lacing handle. Then, the Bail Out System allows you to get out of your boots quickly when you're getting ready to leave the resort. Aptly named, the D30-enhanced Cloud 9 liner offers a premium, heat-moldable fit that's impressively comfortable. It's equipped with D30 padding over the ankle's most vulnerable spot (e. g. where the ankle strap ratchets tightly down), preventing pressure points from painfully sidelining your shred session. Looking to the midsole, the EVA foam is paired with airbag impact damping in the heel for a well-cushioned feel when you're stomping landings and charging across choppy snow. Then, the Vibram Icetrek sole lends sure-footed grip for hiking for fresh turns, especially across rocky ridges and icy surfaces.
