From the X-Games Big Air events, dropping into “no fall zones” in AK, to exploring beyond where the splitboard track ends, the upgraded Nitro Capital Snowboard boot will provide the fit, response, and support you will need to conquer your greatest fears.
The Capital was introduced to be Nitro´s flagship performance boot with a fit and response so precise that you can send it into a Gold Medal at X-games or navigate safely down a first descent in Alaska. The Capital´s customizable Internal Ankle Support, Power Tongue Stiffener, Hike `N` Ride Construction, and Adjustable Forward Lean features allow you to easily fine-tune the performance of the Capital to match the response you need for what lies ahead of you. The Hike `N` Ride Construction, Armored Spine, and new 45° Laceglider allow you to take the Capital deep into the backcountry on your splitboard with ease and confidence, while also allowing for fine-tuned performance all around the mountain. The Air Dampening technology combined with Nitro´s Therminator Shield, and Cloud 10 Liner will keep your feet comfortable and warm no matter the conditions. Grip and tread durability have been equally advanced with the Vibram® Outsole made of Icetrek™ and Arctic Grip Vibram ® Compounds with D3O® Shock Absorption to allow you to summit the iciest of faces to get to the powder that is out of reach for most with ease. The progression of advanced boot technology is key to allowing riders to continue progressing their riding, and with the Nitro Capital snowboard boot you are destined to reach new peaks and goals on and off the board.
Vibram® Outsole Made Of Icetrek™ and Arctic Grip Vibram® Compounds with D3O® Shock Absorption
The Vibram® Arctic Grip™ technology complements the outstanding performance of the Vibram® Icetrek™ compound and extends it to wet ice surfaces. Vibram® Arctic Grip™ is made from a unique polymer blend, coupled with an advanced filler system and a new processing technique. The result is the most advanced cold weather gripping system ever created by Vibram.
Used on all boots with rubber outsoles, the EVA midsole reduces the overall weight and provides cushioning and thermal insulation.
Our trusted AIR suspension technology is now featured on even more models. The best shock absorbing technology on the planet sucks up hard landings and keeps your heels from getting bruised. This noticeable difference in ride and comfort does not compromise response or control.
Hike ‘N’ Ride Construction
A construction specifically made for making the transition and performance between hike and ride mode easier and more beneficial for the rider (together with the 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).
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.
We are using an anatomically shaped and 3D molded heel reinforcement to provide even boot flex and long-lasting heel fit.
This thermal layer between sole and liner will reflect your body heat and keep your feet warm all day.
Flex Link Design
A flexible panel at the ankle between the upper and lower shell ensures an even flexing, responsive boot without the bulk.
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 (Twin Lacing System)
Nitro leading the pack with the TLS 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 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.
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.
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.
Molded Toe Cap
Precision-molded to fit our last perfectly, our molded toe cap provides more toe space and protection from toe straps worn over the tip.
Cloud 10 Liner
- Pre-Molded Thermacell: for perfect out-of–the box fit
- Re/Lace Liner Locker: for a snug and easy to operate closure
- ILS Power Strap: for a snug top closure
- Hi-Heel Frame: more response and a precise fit
- Latex Memory Pads: for a lifetime heel fit
- Flex Toe: expands for custom toe box fit
- DIRECTIONAL NON-SLIP HEEL GRIP LINING: keeping your feet where they belong
- Triple Density Ortholite® Footbed: for ultimate control and cushioning
ILS (Internal Lacing System)
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.
