High-end support for full-throttle shredding.
The Nitro Select TLS Snowboard Boot offers precise response and all-day comfort for riders who prefer a quick-reacting, supportive boot. The removable tongue stiffener lets you fine-tune the boot's flex to match your riding style, while the advanced TLS 5 Twin lacing system ensures a comfy, secure fit every time.
Along with features two speedlace pulls to let you dial in the perfect fit with secure heel hold the new TLS 5 Twin lacing system offers easier lace engagement and release than ever before. If anything breaks it can easily be fixed without special tools, and when you're ready to get out of your boots simply give the Bail Out tab a quick pull and the shell opens without a fuss. An armored spine provides reliable support and a removable Power Tongue Stiffener insert stiffens the boot for backcountry booter sessions, which can be removed for a looser flex when you're lapping the park.
A heat-moldable Cloud 9 liner allows for a comfy custom fit, and it's been enhanced this season with D30 material for enhanced cushioning. ILS liner lacing provides extra security and prevents heel lift. Air damping in the heel and an EVA midsole cushion harsh impacts from overshot landings and big cliff drops. The Therminator shield in the bottom of the boot's shell reflects heat to keep your feet toasty. The rugged and durable Vibram Icetrek outsole is designed specifically for snowboarding, making short work of icy ridgelines and slippery parking lots.

- Q & A
40 days is the time I get out of any boots before they become too soft to ride. This was the first time in a long time that I didn't buy Burton boots. I used to get the stiffest ones they offer and only get 40 days out of those too.
These boots were really good out of the box. I had to make a few modifications to them. The inner soles have air bubbles on the heel that get crushed when you tighten the boots really hard. I replaced them with these: http://www.backcountry.com/sole-dean-karnazes-signature-edition-footbed.
The tongue has a rubber lined window that cuts into your shin when the boots get tightened so I cut the tongues out of some old liners and jammed them into the boot.
I think snowboard boots in general have a ways to go before they are perfected. Snowboarding is an asymmetrical sport and we should be buying goofy or regular boots in the future. I wouldn't mind reintroducing plastic into the mix for a more consistent flex as well.
