Nitro Phantom Binding Basics
The all-new Nitro Phantom provides a seasoned snowboarder with more control, finesse, comfort, and turning response all in all snow conditions and in any terrain.
The new and exclusive AIR Plus footbed provides a comfortable and responsive damping system, allowing you to ride longer daily. The base frame and Highback offer a seamless interface for riders looking to connect turns at their local resort or send it in hard on big lines in AK. The 3D OptiFrame injection-molded ankle strap combined with the Übergrip Toe Strap offers a precision fit and reduces the overall weight. Finally, the Cable Reinforced Connectors and Ratchets and Forged Aluminum Speedwheel buckles are smooth operating, durable and reliable that will stand the test of time.

Nitro Phantom Binding Test Notes
"I love the simplicity to it. It's quite lightweight, and the straps are really nice on the feet. It's quite easy to set up on the board. You don't actually need a tool. You can quickly release and change the size of straps, which is quite nice. Another thing I really liked about the binding is the ladders have a metal cable inside. So even if you were to break the ladder, you can still get off the resort with your binding strapped in. It's a stiffer binding, which I really like. It just feels comfy, and the performance of it makes me feel like I'm attached to my snowboard. It's a comfortable, well-fitting binding that allows for a good response riding the resort and off of side hits and big mountain riding as well. I think it excels in all-mountain riding, but I could take it in the park as well and still have a great time. If you're looking for a binding to maximize performance and give you the most response, this is an excellent binding."—Aari
