• Upper Tier Shock Absorption
  • Excellent Adjustability
  • Pretty Damp


  • Liked the Team Pro Better
  • Ankle Strap didn't wrap from ankle to ankle like the Pro
  • Need Seperate Disc For Burton Channel System Boards


The Nitro Team is a solid binding and I liked it almost as much as the Team Pro. The only thing I didn't like about it was how little the ankle strap wrapped from ankle to ankle vs. the Team Pro.

How It Was Tested

I rode these several days in many different conditions on many different boards. Then, I put them in a sampler to see how they compare against similar bindings. There is no better way to understand how a binding rides.



Highback Flex

The Nitro Team twists easily and has a light give pulling straight back.

Flex Underfoot

Nitro Team Flex Underfoot

The buttering potential or ability to flex torsionally is not there compared to many other min-disc or Burton Re:Flex bindings, but you can still easily butter. What I did like a lot was how the binding stiffens up the board in a good way without making it feel dead.

Turn Initiation/Response

Nitro Team Response

The Nitro Team is pretty responsive if you flip the ankle straps around. When you do, it’s almost there with the Phantom and can power most boards out there. If you flip it the other way it’s a more mellow mtn freestyle to park kind of binding. I love the duality.

Shock Absorption

Nitro Team Shock Absorption

The Airbags feel great. The Team and Team Pro aren’t there with the Phantom and Phantom +, but they are very good compared to many other bindings out there. You have a very cush heel and a little EVA foam from after the heel to the Gas Pedal.



The Nitro Team’s semi-soft plastic does a very good job of dampening up the ride. Usually, you feel plastic, and it’s not in a good way. It can damage your board’s top sheet and also make it feel dead. The whole time I was riding these and the Team Pro’s, I never felt like I was on plastic.

Boot Support

Nitro Team Straps

So this is the only design element where I didn’t like the Team that much. Usually, I love this kind of ankle strap, but I found it was a little too tall in the middle, so it didn’t flex as well as many of its competitors. Then I also didn’t like how it fell a good bit short of wrapping from ankle to ankle as the Team Pro did. I also miss the asymmetry of the Team Pro’s ankle strap. You could flip it, and it would respond more, or flip it the other way and get more freedom of movement.

The toe straps grip well and never come loose. I like this design.


These worked well on the Team and Team Pro.


Nitro is serious about making an adjustable binding to center your boot on the binding. They do that with an adjustable heel loop and gas pedal. It fits most footprints in the sizing range. This leads to a better/more symmetrical response. From there, you have all the normal toolless adjustability for high back rotation, strap adjustability, etc.

There are two drawbacks of the Nitro Team and all Nitro Bindings

  1. I can’t recommend them to riders with setback inserts (40mm apart instead of 20mm), and many brands have them.
  2. If you have Burton-compatible discs, you need to get a second set of discs from Nitro. I’m not for proprietary tech that Burton makes, but for a brand that makes Step-In compatible boots, I thought they would make one disc that could handle both.

Everything else is pretty much toolless and very easy to adjust on snow.


So, the Nitro Team is my second choice after the Team Pro for a medium response/do anything binding, but that is saying a lot as I love the Team Pro.

This binding is really ingenious!!!
I especially liked how well I could center the boot on board with this binding. It's just 2 screws to adjust the Heelcup in seconds. This binding has for me the perfect flex. Having the forward lean aggressive forward it's very responsive jet forgiving. Due to the minidisk the flex underfoot is very nice.
Ratches work supersmooth and straps are very comfortable.
Buttering is easy and I had no issues with pressure points. The good damping makes riding bumpy passages easy.
I even prefer this binding over the Ride LTD.
I hope that helps everyone.
