To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Iron Maiden’s chart-topping album The Number of the Beast, originally released on March 22, 1982, Nitro Snowboards has teamed up with the world-famous rock band Iron Maiden to create an exclusive, Limited-Edition collaboration.
A match forged in hell, the Nitro Beast snowboard and Team binding feature original art from the 1982 album cover, The Number of the Beast, and an exclusive metal bade calling out each individual Number of the Beast. Only 666 sets of this unique collection have been created in true Iron Maiden style.
When you combine the energy of a limited Iron Maiden graphic on the world´s most progressive freestyle snowboard and binding, the result is a snowboard that will allow any beast to take their progression to new heights. This Twin-Shaped, Trüe Cambered freestyle mastery offers the support and precision needed for world-class music and tricks, while the Sintered Speed Formula II Base keeps you hauling ass while listening to Maiden all day long! The Nitro x Iron Maiden Beast snowboard and Team binding were built to provide the best support, stability, pro-caliber performance, and durability to take you through hell and back!
Remember, there will only ever be 666 available in the world!
Trüe Camber is good old standard camber, which provides the stability, and pop many shreds can ́t live without. The amount of snap and support you get from a cambered board is unrivalled by any other camber design. Our Trüe Camber varies between board models because each board is specifically designed for a certain terrain or type of riding, for example the Trüe Camber in our Pantera has a larger height for maximum response, while the Trüe Camber in our freestyle boards are lower to provide you with a more freestyle friendly flex, without losing the support and trust you need for stomping landings. Camber is Camber there is no point in over complicating it!
The simplest and most common of all sidecuts: One single radius makes this sidecut extremely versatile and predictable.
Power Core II: Enhanced Performance and Extra Strength
The Powercore II is a tip-to-tail poplar wood core with additional beech wood stringers for unrivalled strength, smooth response and insane snap.
Whiplash Core Profile: Maximum Ollie Power
This profile features reduced thickness between the inserts with added meat outside your feet for maximum ollie power, while maintaining a perfect press flex.
New! Ureshred Sidewalls
New on all Nitro park boards, we are introducing our URESHRED sidewall: Just like Skate wheels and bushings, these sidewalls are made from Polyurethane, which makes them highly resistant against impact and abrasion as well as giving them excellent dampening characteris- tics. Together with our exclusive Railkiller Edges, our URESHRED sidewalls provide the ultimate package of edge durability and feel.
Tri-lite Laminates: Responsive and Balanced
The perfect blend of flex and torsion control, Nitro tuned Tri- Lite Laminates with fibers running in 3 directions make for quick turning, highly responsive boards.
Ballistic Impact Panels
Kevlar© is used in bulletproof vests and body armor to protect your core. We use it in strategic places around the binding-to-board interface to protect the construction from impacts during hard landings.
Carbon reinforcement fibers are ultra-strong yet lightweight. Tip- to-tail stringers transfer rider’s input to help you drive your board and stay in control.
Your secret weapon for rails, rocks and longevity! With its unique edge profile and an impact resistance of more than 200% compared to a standard edge – the Railkiller Edge is twice as thick and twice as strong. This proprietary construction can take on any rail challenge. Take a file to them or ride them hard and wear them down naturally, this chunk of steel has enough meat for years of abuse.
Sintered Speed Formula II Base: Fastest and Durable
Rocket science put to work! A nanotech wax formula deeply infused into our sintered base material makes the base surface lightning fast in all snow conditions. Highly tuned yet extremely durable, SPEED FORMULA II Base technology is exclusively featured on Nitro high-end boards.
Climate Neutral Product
Together with ClimatePartner we are able to use specific and accurate tools and information to measure our carbon footprint in life cycle from production to end life of our snowboards. Our partnership with ClimatePartner allows us to strive to find more effecient ways to improve and reduce our carbon footprint every step of our products lifecycle, and also allows us to offset our current carbon footprint to make our snowboards 100% Carbon Neutral by investing into climate change projects and solutions. Reducing, rethinking, and compensating for CO2 emissions is just the start.
FSC Certified: 100% wood from well-managed forests
The wood used in every snowboard is what makes a snowboard a snowboard, the organic flex is something unique and special. We feel it is important that we and everyone else respects the forests and the wood that is being used
for the future of snowboard development, but more importantly the future of the planet and our Forrests. We are proud to officially announce that all of our boards are made with wood cores harvested 100% from well-managed forests and we are therefor entitled to use the official FSC™ label on all of our snowboards.
100% Natural Speed Wax
All NITRO boards are factory-tuned with Kandahars 100% Natural Speed Wax, a fully biodegradable wax made of renewable resources.
