This week Nike unveiled an impressive new use of LED lights – in its newest snowboard boot, the LunarENDOR QS. A special edition boot made in limited quantities, the LunarENDOR was built with night rides in mind. Intended to light up the night sky during competition, these boots just beg to be put into motion.
“Circuitry aside, the Nike LunarENDOR is one of the most technologically advanced snowboard boots available. This year’s top-of-the-line offering sees the addition of Nike Lunarlon foam to provide a softer, more responsive ride and absorb some of the impact during landings, as well as dynamic support to help keep legs and hips more naturally aligned in your stance. Nike has also incorporated a customizable flex line system to give you three levels of stiffness, so whether you’re killing it in the park, pipe, or backcountry your ride will be perfectly dialed in. A 3-D molded upper and a Nike Flywire inner lacing system further enhance fit. Finally, the LunarENDOR’s liner and shell are reinforced with strobel technology that attracts and stores heat.”
