The Nitro Beast is a new 100% twin park board, designed for park riders by the best park riders in the world - Eero Ettala, Torgeir Bergrem, Marcus Kleveland and Sven Thorgen. The combination of Park Flex, Whiplash Core Profile and Trüe Camber provides the perfect amount of camber to stomp the flattest of landings while maintaining the perfect amount of flex to impress the park rats with your sky high presses. Everybody knows how much of a beating the standard park board has to take, so the edges of the Beast are protected with the RailKiller Edges – twice as thick and twice as strong than normal edges.
Freestyle - kickers, rails and everything else in between. This board is made for ripping anything in the park with ease and support.
The Nitro Beast comes with TRÜE CAMBER, a good old standard camber, which provides the stability and pop many shreds can't leave without. The amount of snap and support you get from a cambered board is unrivalled by any other camber design. Camber is Camber, there is no point in over complicating it!
This snowboard comes in a Twin Shape. Tip and tail are of equal length and width combined with a degressive sidecut. The snowboard rides equally well in both directions with a focus on freestyle, park, and powder. The Radial Sidecut is the simplest and most common of all sidecuts: one single radius makes this sidecut extremely versatile and predictable. The idea behind Progressive Width is that the board gets wider the bigger the length gets and vice versa.
The Park Flex of the Beast is specifically tuned for park riding, forgiving and yet responsive, allowing you to take your riding to the next level on jumps and rails.
The Beast features the Sintered Speed Formula II Base: rocket science put to work! A nanotech wax formula deeply infused into Nitro's sintered base material makes the base surface lightening fast in all snow conditions. Highly tuned yet extremely durable, SPEED FORMULA II Base Technology is exclusively featured in Nitro's high-end boards. The Powercore II is a tip-to-tail poplar wood core with additional beech wood stringers for unrivalled strength, smooth response and insane pop. The Beast also features Whiplash Core Profile, with reduced thickness between the inserts with added metal outside your feet for maximum ollie power, while maintaining a perfect press flex.
This park board is loaded with Tri-Lite laminates, tuned with fibres running in 3 directions to deliver quick turning and high response, combined with Diamond Band, carbon reinforcement fibres that are ultra strong yet lightweight. Tip-to-tail stringers transfer rider´s input to help you drive your board and stay in control.
The Beast´s secret weapon for rails, rocks and longevity: Railkiller Edges! With its unique edge profile and an impact resistance of more than 200% compared to a standard adge, the Railkiller Edge is as twice ad thick and twice ad strong. This proprietary construction can take any rail challenge. Take a file to them or ride them hard and wear them down naturally, this chunk of steel has enough meat for years of abuse. Furthermore, Nitro put Ballistic Impact Panels made of Kevlar® (a material used in bulletproof vests and body armor to protect your core) in strategic places around the binding-to-board interface. This protects the board's construction from impacts during hard landings.
Nitro was founded by two heavy duty snowboarders, who were disappointed by the selection of snowboard gear available to them. From day one, Nitro's focus has been on nothing but snowboarding and they are dead set on keeping it that way. Together with a star dusted team, Nitro's goal is to bring people together. With the help of snowboard events for kids, youths and adults, their plan for the next few years is to bring back the stoke and love for snowboarding around the world.
