When you want to go fast, you need to have a responsive binding to act quickly. The Machine is built to offer a precise response with a scientific lightweight and a fit so perfect you won´t even know its there.
The Carbon Beam Highback is constructed asymmetrically to line up with your heel edge for a more responsive ride. The raised inside is there to transfer your power better to the board while the deeper outside of the highback gives you space for tweaks and other moves. The upper edge of the highback is softly padded. The carbon fibre material makes the construction very lightweight and very stiff.
The two-piece Carbon Fiber Composite Air 2.0 Baseplate consists of the baseplate and the aluminium heel cup which lets you adjust it to fit your boot perfectly. Nitro Dual Air Dampening is the most effective and lightweight dampening system. Bags full of air under your toes and heels absorb every shock to save your back, knees, and ankles and let you ride another day. The 3° Canted Footbed puts your body in the most natural and ergonomic position on the board to help you stay longer and ride longer. This is supported by the Dual Density Footbed Padding with 2 zones of padding with different density on the inside and the outside of the footbed. The 2X4 Mini Disc With Angle Lock Feature has a smaller footprint and less impact on the boards flex. The snap feature lets you choose your binding angle before you mount your bindings - set it once, never lose it again. With the Board Saver Technology, the air dampening goes under the outside of the chassis, thereby protecting the top sheet of the board of excessive force, which can lead to breakage.
The Premium Hold Ankle Straps are very comfortable and provide an even flex over the ankle of your boot. The Ultra Grip toe strap combines the shape and feel of Nitro's ULTRA FIT strap concept with the sticky Xstrek rubber from Vibram®. The strap adapts to any boots toe box shape while the rubber keeps the strap in place, no matter how hard you stomp your landing, whether it’s wet or damn cold. The new Micro Drive Ratchet System is a split ratchet system and features twice as many clicks per stroke and allows you to fine-tune your strap tension with the precision of a Swiss watch. When conventional buckles go from loose to end in just one click, MicroDrive buckles with their half incremental adjustment will get you the extra click you need and the fine adjustment you wish. The Cable reinforced Connectors come with over-moulded stainless steel cables inside the ratchets and connector straps – no more stretch, no more breaks. The Aluminum Speedwheel Buckles consist of the strongest and lightest aluminium lever combined with the smoothness of a polymer Speedwheel. These buckles work like a dream and last forever- No stripping, no slipping! Easy Entry Buckles and Ratchets are S-curved ratchet straps that stay out of your way when stepping into the binding. The wide-mouth buckle funnel helps you guide the ratchet for an ultra fast, precise bite of your buckles.
Nitro was founded by two heavy duty snowboarders, who were disappointed by the selection of snowboard gear available to them. From day one, Nitro's focus has been on nothing but snowboarding and they are dead set on keeping it that way. Together with a star dusted team, Nitro's goal is to bring people together. With the help of snowboard events for kids, youths and adults, their plan for the next few years is to bring back the stoke and love for snowboarding around the world.
