Why we chose the Nidecker Helios APX Snowboard Boots: Upgraded lacing, a tech insole and a sick graphic take this already brilliant boot to the next level.
Let’s be honest: Nidecker are more famous for their Swiss-designed snowboards than their boots, but with the (ahem) strides they’ve been making over the past few seasons all that could change. Since taking over the Flow brand, they’ve re-designed the range from the ground up – starting with the lasts – with the lofty aim of producing a seamless boot/binding interface. Their latest footwear is 100% vegan and packed with premium features at a super competitive price, as epitomised by the Helios APX. It’s a mid-stiff model aimed at intermediate riders and up who want a comfortable, well specced platform for tackling any terrain.
