NITRO FAINT TLS $300

Transworld Snowboarding - - WOMEN’S FREERIDE BOOTS -

Don’t let the mess of laces con­fuse you, the Faint’s se­cu­rity-fo­cused TLS sys­tem stays snug through long days of heavy abuse. Built for fe­males who re­quire a stiff, hardy boot, our testers found these to be among the most re­spon­sive of­fer­ings in the test. The beefy Vi­bram sole ex­celled when hik­ing icy boot packs, while the gel-cush­ioned heel sucked up bumps and chat­ter with the ut­most ef­fi­ciency. For those who tend to get cold feet, the Faint comes com­pat­i­ble with boot heaters, but the slim and soft D30 liner still pro­vided plenty of warmth out of the box.

RAD: Beefy sole is built to with­stand abuse. BAD: The lac­ing sys­tem is com­plex.
