The Thunder is one of the lightest boots on the market and offers ground-breaking technology in comfort, flex, and fit that freestyle riders prefer. The TLS 5 Twin Lacing System offers the reliability and support you need for all-day park laps, while the Cloud 3 Liner offers the most surefooted fit and comfort for all day impact absorption. The Nitro Team Jibbers prefer this boot for rail/park laps because of its broken-in-right-out-of-the-box feel – Instant Comfort.
The lightweight construction of the Thunder boot has the perfect soft flex for jibs and the support you need for technical tricks.
Nitro's most versatile liner, the Cloud 3 combines Thermacell material, moulded Latex heel pads and a Lo-Heel Frame into one lightweight, comfortable package. Heat moldable. Featuring an internal lacing system and moulded Latex heel pads for infinite heel fit and a flex toe construction for a highly customised feel. The Lo-heel frame offers more flex and a precise shape and a Flex toe expands for a custom toe box fit. The Anatomical Footbed provides shock absorption and comfort. Directly connected to the liner, the DLS (Direct Lacing System) features Dyneema® loaded low-friction laces for ultimate fit and comfort. The NEW Re/Lace Liner Locker provides easy adjustability of your inner boot lacing when your boot shell is already tightened (tied), by just pulling up on the lace handle. This allows you to (re)tighten your liner and foothold throughout the day (on and off the chairlift) without having to untie your boot.
To reduce weight even more, Nitro uses full EVA outsoles on selected models. While keeping weight low, the EVA also provides great impact absorption and thermal insulation. The EVA outsoles are reinforced with strategically placed Rubber Impact Panels for added resistance.
Once again, Nitro is pushing ahead by introducing the TLS 5 Twin lacing system. Based on the experience from their previous technical lacing systems, they have further refined the functionality of the TLS 5: Easier lace engagement and release, combined with less friction of the Dyneema® laces are the key factors of this highly reliable mechanism. The moulded TLS lace handles provide better grip and comfort for more comfort and lacing power.
The Bail Out System is designed to make unlacing the TLS system even easier. This pull tab that is placed in the middle of the TLS lacing system on the outside of the boot allows for effortless
unlacing and recording breaking speeds for taking your boots off.
Please take care to measure your feet accurately. Snowboard boots are made in either US or Mondopoint (cm) sizes.
For your Mondopoint Size, measure your larger foot in centimetres with your heel against a hard surface.
Please consider that your usual European (EU) size, may be different in a snowboard boot.
When your boots arrive, if they feel tight, don't panic! Snowboard Boots have foam liners which will wear in over time.
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.
