Select TLS Snowboard Boot

Precise response and premium comfort come to you in the Nitro Select TLS Snowboard Boot. Made for riders who want a quick-response and confident support, this boot has a removable tongue stiffener to fine-tune the boot's flex to match your riding style, while the advanced TLS 5 Twin lacing system ensures a comfy and secure fit every time. The TLS 5 lacing system makes it easy to individually adjust the tightness of the upper and lower halves of the boot, 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 beefs up the 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 with D30 material for enhanced cushioning. ILS liner lacing provides extra security and prevents heel lift. Air Dampening 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.

  • Lightning-fast response and plush comfort meet in this boot
  • Speedlacing system locks in a secure fit instantly
  • Thermo-moldable liner provides a plush, custom fit
  • Ortholite footbed helps cushion harsh landings
  • Air damping helps even out chatter at speeds
  • Vibram rubber outsole is insanely grippy
  • Armored shell bolsters up support for bigger terrain
  • Power Tongue Stiffener creates the perfect amount of precision

Pinch points and unfortunate lacing

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was looking for a stiffer boot than what I had used in the past. The inner stiffener is a piece of plastic that is laced in so it is not removable. When you tighten the inner liner to prevent heel lift, this orange plastic piece would dig into the top of my foot, making it really hurt to ride. I tried leaving it loose and it still cause issues and left the boot feeling sloppy. I typically will ride about 6 hours and take a few short breaks for food. I couldn't go more than an hour without stopping to adjust these or sit in the chalet like an old man because they hurt my feet. I like to think I have a fairly high pain tolerance but man these suck. Also, the lacing system has 2 flaws. 1. They would come unlocked and loosen about every 45 mins. And yes I leaned forward and made sure they were "locked in". 2. When you tighten the boots, you are left with about 2 feet of cord you need to stuff up your pants or inside your boot. Honestly it wouldn't be that bad if you didn't have to constantly be adjusting the laces when they came loose. If they truly locked and you had to stuff them away once a day, this would not be a big deal. For context, I wear a size 13-14 depending on brand and have an average foot shape, meaning any other brand; K2 snowboard boots, asic running shoes, under armour boots, nike running shoes, sperry shoes and boots, all fit fine in the standard size. I don't have "wide" feet or a high arch or anything that would make this review personal to me only, I would suspect many people would encounter this if they have "true to size" feet. Hope it's helpful. Pay more for the BOA version or skip Nitro and go K2 or something else.

Hey Stephen,

Thanks for taking the time to provide your insight on the fit of these boots. Please let me know if you'd like to exchange them for a Nitro or K2 model!
