Nitro Snowboards 2010-2011

06 Apr, 2010


Nitro’s been in the snowboard game for over 20 years with designs based around the influence of skateboarding and music within snowboarding.   They continue to offer snowboards including their pro model series and pro one-off boards as well as music collaborations like the Swindle x Early Man and art influence boards like the Rook x Dennis McNett graphics.

For technology in 10-11, Nitro offers a mix of options for riders.  Their gullwing camber which gives the snowboards a skateboard like feel with loose trucks, zero camber combines the best of regular and negative camber and standard camber provides stability at high speeds.  For park riders, they have railkiller edge with it’s unique edge profile and impact resistance of more than 200% compared to a standard edge and their scratch and rip base for showing off your rail skills with distinct colors from a second layer graphic.

    Hm…no Team Gullwing for next year? I love mine, but the inclusion of a sintered base would make me upgrade next year
