Nitro Snowboards introduces the Sub Pop

24 Jul, 2008

The brand New Nitro Sub Pop Features negative camber between the bindings with a flat base towards the tip and tail for a more skate orientated feel.

In addition, the board features our DRIFTER BASE, which is a convex base shape in the binding area which blends into a flat base toward tip and tail. We were the first to offer this feature several years ago on the T0, and enhances rail performance. The base is “dished” .25 of an inch resulting in a looser feel and catch free jibbing. You can lean into your tricks like you do on your skateboard.
The board construction will feature our RAIL KILLER EDGE, bombproof FH base and our all new COMBAT CORE, a highly flexible yet durable core consisting of ENGINEERED WOOD that is lighter, stronger and livelier than a standard wood core. Like all Nitro products the Sub Pop features a 2 year warranty.

The Sub Pop will be featured in select shops in limited quantities beginning this Fall as an Early Introduction 2010 model.

Bryan Fox and Josh Mills have been destroying HCSC all summer on this board. Look for the Sub Pop in early November.

  • Available in sizes: 148cm, 152cm, 155cm
  • Stance Range (inches): 21.3-26.0 for all 3 sizes

    I believe right now this is the most information you’ll find. I know there will be something on it in TWS but that might be a while longer you have to wait.

    I’ll find out the price for you.
