Best New Snowboard

The combination of the Cam-Out Camber and the tapered directional shape will open your eyes to a snowboarding world you have never seen before. Floating, slashing, and bashing with the Slash will leave you smiling all winter long. Not every day is a pow day, so Nitro created the perfect blend of sidecut and flex to give you a surf like flow even on the choppiest of days.
Freeride - If you're always on the hunt for untouched pow fields and new runs in the backcountry, this is your board!
A Tapered Directional board is best for all-mountain freeriding. The nose is longer and wider than the tail, giving you plenty of control in any terrain, and the stance is set back to help you float above the pow. Plus, the stiffened tail helps to snap you out of turns and keep your speed up. At the Progressive Sidecut, the tighter radius towards tip and tail improve control, acceleration, and grip. Combined with a mellower tip and tail flex, these sidecuts gives you just the right amount of control you're looking for.
Nitro's Cam-Out Camber is basically a Trüe Camber with early and smooth transitions into Tip and Tail. The result is a fun and responsive board that turns on the spot and is forgiving, even after that 713.5° landing!
All Terrain - The most versatile flex pattern, combining Nitro’s signature pop with smooth response, allowing you to tear up the entire mountain.
The 3D balsa core is precision machined to a 3D shape, matching the contoured top surface of the board. The result is a lightweight board which is sleek looking and reinforced in the important edge and insert areas. Bi-Lite Laminates are forgiving and strong and engineered for unrivalled strength, powerful style, and refined board feel. With the Sintered Speed Formula HD Base, it was possible to achieve higher abrasion resistance, increased wax absorption and higher on-snow speeds.

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.
