Directional shape is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float in powder. A softer nose allows for a smoother roll into your carve, while a stiffer waist and tail provides better control through the turn and a stronger finish.
Basically True Camber with early and smooth transitions into tip and tail. The camber between the feet keeps your contact points on the ground allowing for better edge hold. Compressing the camber will accentuate the rocker by lifting the contact points allowing a more catch free turn and better float in the powder.
Dual Degressive Sidecut
This sidecut blends a smaller radius in the center with two larger ones in the tip and tail, making the board easier to maneuver in and out of turns while creating more stability at the ends, especially for taking off and landing jumps.
Overlaying a tighter sidecut radius in the center of the board with a larger one towards the tip and tail is creating Nitro’s exclusive Power Pods. This extends the board width underfoot resulting in additional edge control while reducing toe and heel drag. This also makes the board more reactive and fast turning once it is on edge.
This core uses tip to tail poplar wood, providing lightweight strength and the perfect blend of flex, response, and feel for predictable turns and stability.
