Product Details

Rocker Type

Zero CamberCombining the best of regular and negative camber, Zero camber boards are easy to maneuver while adding more snap and ollie pop than a pure negative camber design. The result is a board with maximum versatility in more varied riding terrain.


Park FlexSpecifically tuned for park riding, this flex pattern is forgiving yet responsive, allowing you to take your riding to the next level.


Profile TipTapered to disperse energy and reduce swing weight

True twin tip


Dual Degressive SidecutMakes landings and takeoffs effortless without sacrificing powerful turns


Powercore IIThe Powercore II is a tip-to-tail poplar wood core with additional beech wood stringers for unrivaled strength, smooth response and insane snap.

Whiplash Core ProfileReduces thickness between the inserts with added meet outside your feet for max ollie power


Ballistic Impact PanelKevlar© is used in bulletproof vests and body armor to protect your core. Nitro uses it in strategic places around the binding-to-board interface to protect the construction from impacts during hard landings. It is many times stronger and lighter than common titanal reinforcements.

New Diamond Band LaminateWell-balanced layers of Carbon Fiber on the bottom combined with fiberglass on the top of the board establish a new level in performance and gives more snap and liveliness for a smooth, powerful and effortless ride.

Bi-Light LaminateNitro's rider-trusted Bi-Light Laminates are engineered for unrivaled strength, powerful style and refined board feel.


Sintered Speed Formula BaseFast, strong and low maintenance - the high molecular compound and hyperglide wax additives push the pros to go bigger than ever.


Railkiller EdgeThis is your secret weapon on rails. With its unique edge profile and impact resistance of more that 200% compared to a standard edge, this proprietary construction can take on any rail challenge. Take a file or ride them hard and wear them down, this chunk of steel has enough meat for years of railing.
