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, Cut and Buff EVA Midsole, new Molded Crampon Heel Cup, 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 Vibram® Backcountry Outsole made of Icetrek™ and Arctic Grip™ Vibram® Compounds and 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 2022 Nitro Incline backcountry snowboard boot.
Vibram® Backcountry Outsole Made of Icetrek™ Vibram® Compound and powered by Vibram® Arctic Grip™ Technology
The Vibram® Arctic Grip™ technology complements the outstanding performance of the Vibram® IcetrekTM 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.
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.
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 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.
This thermal layer between sole and liner will reflect your body heat and keep your feet warm all day.
Spine Protection (Club and Cypress BOA® Models, Incline and Skylab)
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.
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.
Cloud 8 Liner
- Pre-Molded Thermacell: offers a minimum weight and maximum comfort.
- Re/Lace Liner Locker: for a snug and easy to operate closure
- Latex Memory Pads: for a lifetime heel fit
- Flex Toe: expands for custom toe box fit
- Dual Density Ortholite® Footbed: top notch control and cushioning
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 (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.
