Nidecker says about the Kita
The Kita sets a new standard for all-mountain snowboard boots. Inspired by the technical demands of polar and mountain expeditions, it’s crammed with features and delivers supremely reliable performance from first lift til’ last. Comfort is key to its design, starting with an asymmetrical shape that perfectly matches our bindings for a really natural connection to your board. Where possible, we’ve welded components to the upper rather than sewn them, giving it a unique seamless build that’s way more waterproof. We’ve also added a tough TPU shield around the front called ArmourTech, which will protect your toes while you’re billy-goating in the rocks. The Dual BOA lacing system includes a specially-developed External Heel Lock – controlled via the tongue dial – to keep your foot firmly in place, while the lower part of the boot can be tightened using the side dial. There are two EVA components in the midsole for better dampening, and the B.F.T Vibram Approach outsole benefits from an Icetrek rubber compound for unreal grip. Our new Transition Zone tech seamlessly connects this sole to the Exo Spine, accelerating response and preventing damage to the back of the boot when entering or exiting the binding. With a top-of-the-line Gold Wrap Liner, comfort and support is guaranteed right out the box – and of course it’s fully heat moldable for a custom fit. Riders who want to shred the whole mountain without compromise will find everything they need in this rugged, high-performance boot.
