Atomic Nuke 1-Thirty (2010)
A declawed race boot tweaked for aggressive freeriders, the Nuke 1-Thirty offers plenty of stiffness and power for precise turning. The wide, cam-buckle power strap jacks up the boot’s reactivity; loosen it for mellow cruising. Fat buckles are easy to flip, and a shock-absorbing heel softens hard stomps. PLUS: Your shins and calves stay put in the leatherlike, grippy liners. MINUS: Heels tend to slide in the flat-backed heel pocket.
