NITRO INCLINE TLS
Nitro har trappet opp sitt splitboardgame, vi er svært fornøyde med å kunne presentere markedets mest gjennomtenkte splitboardboot. Støvelen har stiv og god såle, noe som hjelper deg mye ved traversering på vei oppover. Blir det for bratt og rufsete til at du kan gå på brettet, er også Incline TLS kompatibel med stegjern. Støvelen kan selvfølgelig settes i både kjøre- og gåmodus, og kan også gjøres stivere ved hjelp av en innleggstunge. Med bruk av lettvektsmaterialer, er også Nitro Incline TLS lettere enn alle sammenlignbare splitboardboots på markedet. Med en innerstøvel som kan varmes opp for ultimat passform, gis du også komforten som trengs for å holde ut lange dager i fjellet.
Up, Up, And Away
The Incline backcountry snowboard boot is a versatile and highly functional mountain machine, equipped with our new Vibram® Backcountry Outsole made of Icetrek™ and Arctic Grip Vibram® Compounds, new Cut and Buff Eva Midsole, new Molded Crampon Heel Cup, new Rubber Toe Protection to create the grippiest and most durable snowboard boot in the backcountry.
The Incline boot was inspired by our local mountain the “Kofel” which is a dramatically beautiful peak located right outside of our Headquarters in Oberammergau, Germany. The Kofel is an extreme peak, which means the new Incline boot is equipped with some of the best technologies available today like the New Vibram® Backcountry Outsole made of Icetrek™ and Arctic Grip™ Vibram® Compounds and new Cut and Buff Eva Midsole which offer the best grip, flex, and sure foothold at a minimum weight to allow you to summit peaks with confidence. To be fully functional in the backcountry certain features must be available, such as the new Molded Crampon Heel Cup and new Rubber Toe Protection making this a fully crampon compatible snowboard boot. The Hike`N`Ride Construction and Adjustable Forward Lean design allow for a speedy and comfortable splitboard mode to the peak, while the Auto-Power Strap, Internal Ankle Support, and Flex Link Design let you crank up the response for the ride down. Backcountry snowboarders have different preferences for different days or types of terrain, which creates a demand for different flex patterns and that is why we have added 2 flexes of our Power Tongue Stiffener giving three easily interchangeable options for response. Warm feet will not be an issue thanks to the reflective Therminator Shield underfoot, while quick lace adjustments will be easy to make with the time-proven Re/Lace Liner Locker System. If you are looking for a fully customizable snowboard boot with a laser-focus split boarding, hiking, and getting you deeper and higher into the backcountry - than get ready to go up, up, and away with ease and comfort in the new 2021 Nitro Incline backcountry snowboard boot.
- New Vibram® Backcountry Outsole Made of Icetrek™ Vibram® Compound AND powered by Vibram® Arctic Grip™ Technology
A new sole design developed specifically for our new INCLINE splitboarding boot. Tapping into decades of experience with mountaineering soles, we have teamed up with Vibram® to come up with this snowboarding-specific tread pattern and side profile. The result is a highly durable sole with an unparalleled grip due to ICETREK™ AND ARCTIC GRIP VIBRAM® compounds, combined with a snowboard-specific shape for reduced toe and heel drag.
- New Cut and Buff Eva Midsole
On our INCLINE boot, we’re using a Cut & Buff EVA midsole construction, providing a better foothold in technical passages and making the sole narrower for a perfect fit for various crampon shapes.
- New Molded Crampon Heel Cup
Perfectly shaped for a secure fit of semi-rigid crampons.
- New Rubber Toe Protection
We’re using mountaineering-proven, highly durable rubber glued and lasted over the toe area for protection against crampons, rocks, and ice.
- Hike ‘N’ Ride Construction
A new construction specifically made for making the transition and performance between hike and ride mode easier and more beneficial for the rider (together with the new forward lean adjustment and auto power strap). Hike mode offers a softer flex and ride mode is more responsive and rigid flex.
- Adjustable Forward Lean
For adjusting the flex and response of the boot for riding mode (stiffer) or hike mode (looser).
- Auto-Power Strap
An adjustable power strap located on the top part of the boot shell, that can be easily adjusted, opened and closed through a simple belt ring design. If you want a more responsive fit from the top of your boot than you tighten it if you want a looser fit or feel than you can loosen it or remove the power-strap.
- Therminator Shield
This thermal layer between sole and liner will reflect your body heat and keep your feet warm all day.
- Molded Spine Protection
A flexible molded spine made of a TPR compound that is softer to allow for an even pressured lace closure, while providing medium flex and durability to the shape and spine of the boot.
- Flex Link Design
A flexible panel at the ankle between the upper and lower shell ensures an even flexing, responsive boot without the bulk.
- New 45° Laceglider
This precision-molded low-friction plastic insert is positioned at the crucial 45° lacing position in the ankle area. It drastically reduces lace friction and makes tying up your TLS system even easier.
- TLS 5 Twin Lacing System
Nitro leading the pack with the TLS 5 lacing system: Easy lace engagement and release, combined with the low abrasion of our Dyneema® laces are the key factors of this highly reliable zonal lacing system. At the same time, the TLS 5 features compact size and low weight while maintaining the reliability proven by tens of thousands of days on the mountain.
Even though rarely needed, servicing and replacement of all parts including the lace are easier than with any other system on the market. Even using a standard lace if you're in a pinch is an option only available on Nitro's TLS boots. Easy-entry handle storage pockets as well as our Bail Out system for easier entry and exit round off the most developed dual lacing system on the market.
- Molded TLS Lace Handles
Our molded TLS lace handles provide better grip and comfort for more lacing power.
- Bail Out System
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.
- Cloud 8 Liner
Our new upgraded Cloud 8 Liner offers a comfortable lightweight fit thanks to the pre-molded Thermalight material that makes up this supportive mountain exploring liner. The Thermalight material is made out of a PE, which is slightly stiffer and lighter than standard EVA. The Re/Lace Liner Locker reduces any pressure points, while increases the overall heel hold together with the Latex Memory Pads around the ankle. The Flex Toe box and Dual Density Ortholite® Footbed offer endless comfort and underfoot support no matter how far you are thinking of hiking in the new Incline backcountry boot. Heat moldable.
- Internal Ankle Support
An anatomically shaped molded plate distributes lace pressure over the instep/ankle area: More comfort and a better, more precise fit.
- Power Tongue Stiffener in 2 Flexes
For those looking for adjustable stiffness throughout the day or season, you can use our removable tongue stiffener to change between premium precision or more of a relaxed feel. From the steep and deep to the groomers, you can customize your boot feel perfect for your style.
- ILS Liner Lacing
Our ILS system features a lacing harness firmly connected to the boot shell. This harness snugly wraps around the liner, securing it in the shell and providing precise lacing and fit. Our engineered ILS laces provide less friction and a Dyneema® core for added strength.
- Re/Lace Liner Locker
Another innovation from our friendly R&D department at Nitro: The 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 (wherever you may find yourself on the mountain) without having to untie your boot.
- Ortholite® Dual Density Footbed
Together with OrthoLite®, the World’s Leading Supplier of Open-Cell Foam Insole Technology, we have developed footbeds in dual and triple density versions for different levels of support and comfort: OrthoLite® compresses less than 5% with excellent levels of shock absorption and energy return. Fit and comfort inside the boot will remain consistent for the life of the OrthoLite® product. The unique open cell structure of OrthoLite® also creates a moisture management system inside the boot by moving moisture away from the foot leaving your feet drier. When the foot is removed from the shoe any remaining moisture dries very quickly due to the airflow allowed by the open cell network in the foam. OrthoLite® contains a patented anti-microbial formulation to fight fungus, bacteria, and odor. The biocide is added during formulation so that it is linked to the foam and will not wear off or lose effectiveness over time. The Aegis anti-microbial treatment is EPA and FDA approved. OrthoLite® is extremely lightweight providing optimum performance and without adding excess weight to the boot. OrthoLite® is completely washable and will not hydrolyze. Just throw them in your washing machine and they come out like new.
