Nitro Sub Zero Snowboard

Nitro Sub Zero Snowboard

While other companies were testing the waters with too many, confusing reverse camber stories, Nitro was perfecting their Gullwing camber getting it dialed right from the start. The Subzero is the ultimate in urban and rail riding. The combination of Gullwing camber and their unbreakable Combat core makes your technical street riding easier and bulletproof. It does this by relieving pressure from the contact points so all the control is right between your feet and still provides solid ollie power without sogging out. Nitro has also added their Drifter base that slightly raises the edges away from the snow right between your feet to make it easier to get through kinks without hang ups. This board will allow you to break through to a never seen before level of riding.

Nitro Swindle Snowboard

The Swindle gets the job done, plain and simple. It has a true twin shape, slightly wider waist and snub nose and tail with a radial sidecut. This board is doing what was not possible in the past for construction and price. The Reflex Powercore II makes it ultra durable yet lightweight and soft. It has a long running length so you can size down and stay in control. Its Zero camber and low swing weight makes it is easy to control at all speeds for technical riding. The Swindle also features our exclusive Scratch & Rip base that when scratched or gouged has another layer of base material that is a different color, so it wears through like a skate deck, showing all your scars from session to session.

Nitro T1 Snowboard

Nitro T1 Snowboard

The T1 has evolved into one of the most fun twins on the market, because of its versatile shape, multiple sizes, standard and wide widths and forgiving flex. On top of all of that we have made great even better by adding our Reflex Core Profile and Zero camber. The combo of these two innovations gives the forgiving feel of a Gullwing board, but the pop of a camber deck. The T1 is easy to manipulate at slow speed for tech tricks, but it still has tons of control for when you’re pointing it. Another bang for your buck is the Railkiller edge that is 100% thicker and with longer teeth to combat the harsh impact on all types of rails. The T1 has proven itself once again this season by winning in numerous readers’ choice board tests, so go get some!

Nitro Team Gullwing Snowboard

Nitro Team Gullwing Snowboard

Since the Team is such a solid board it was the perfect fit for our Gullwing camber technology. The Gullwing camber makes it easier to initiate anything from presses to floating in the pow or just casual groomers. By positioning the camber right under your feet, you can pop solid ollies and have control when landing, yet it still allows you to unweight the front or back foot when making that transition in powder, tight turns or presses, making it a very catch free ride. We have also added our Sintered Speed Formula base to ensure no unbuckling on cat tracks.

Nitro Rook Snowboard

Nitro Rook Snowboard

The multiple board test winning Rook has become the go to board this season, because of its true twin, mid-wide shape and Zero camber that makes the board easier to transition from rails to jumps. The Bi-Lite laminates give the Rook a very forgiving flex while the Ballistic Impact Panels and Railkiller edge take all the abuses that the park dishes out. For 2011 we dropped the camber to Zero and added our new Pop Band in the fiberglass for boosted ollie snap. Rounding out the Rooks insanity is the dual degressive sidecut that keeps the board from being catchy on take offs and landings, but provides a solid hold between your feet. Don’t be a mark for those other companies - try a board that will give you some love back.
