The perfect blend of engineered performance and customizable first-class, the El Mejor was designed specifically to be the most comfortable leather snowboard boot on the market without sacrificing endless durability and a fit that lasts.
We have been fine-tuning the EL Mejor´s performance and flex over the last few years, which has resulted in it becoming known as the most comfortable and true-fitting snowboard boot on the market. This classic leather work-boot was built for snowboarders searching for a high-performance fit that is equipped with enhanced durability features like Nitro´s Vibram® Outsole made of Icetrek™ Vibram ® Compound with D3O® Shock Absorption and Internal Ankle Support to keep them hiking further with confidence. The proven combination of Nitro´s Flex Link Design paired with Air Dampening and an Ortholite® Triple Density Footbed delivers long-lasting control and a perfect fit right out of the box. The Cloud 10 Liner provides a warm and reliable foothold all day long. The Power Strap allows you to fine-tune the energy distribution from the top of your boot to your board. The El Mejor´s TLS 5 Twin Lacing System combined with the Re/Lace Liner Locker offers the fastest and most reliable lace hold yet, while the new 45° Laceglider adds a new level of durability. If you are searching for good looking performance without sacrificing comfort, then look no further it is packed into the timeless El Mejor snowboard boot.
Vibram® Outsole made of Vibram® Ecostep™ Compound with D3O® Shock Absorption
Vibram grip and traction and an Eco-friendly approach: here is the new sole of NITRO .... made of Vibram® Ecostep™ Compound, an eco-friendly recycled rubber compound developed by Vibram® and made up to 50% of recycled rubber. The rubber scrap generated by Vibram’s production process is recycled in order to produce Vibram® Ecostep™ compound. It’s a High-quality compound formulation, which offers a very good Vibram grip and traction on snow while preserving the environment through the waste reduction.
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.
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.
Shell Power Strap
Crank down the top of your boot with this easy-to-use feature for more power distribution and response from the top down.
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.
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 (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.
