The Highlander offers a pro-caliber Directional shape geared for power and speed, while Nitro´s exclusive KOROYD® Powercore keeps the weight at a record minimum, and the Antiphase Technology provides the smoothest ride in the line-up, even when hitting record-breaking speeds.
Nitro´s Highlander snowboard offers the smoothest, fastest, and most responsive ride you will ever experience - while maintaining a control level that allows you to have that surfy ride at any moment. The addition of Antiphase Technology enables the board to absorb vibration differently than you have ever experienced before, creating a smooth ride no matter the conditions. The Highlander´s exclusive KOROYD® core technology reduces the overall weight and helps absorb the remaining chatter, allowing you to cut through chop like butter. The TRÜE Camber and Diamond Laminates provide unparalleled response and precision to maximize your focus when needed. At the same time, the Progressive sidecut allows for high-speed turns and supreme edge hold on any snow condition. The Highlander´s pro-caliber lightweight speed, power, and precision is the dream machine every experienced rider desires.
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!
All Terrain: All Mountain Pop
Our most versatile flex pattern, combining Nitro’s signature pop with smooth response, allowing you to tear up the entire mountain.
A larger radius in the front, blended into a tighter one towards the tail: The progressive sidecut makes accelerating out of turns a breeze, while maintaining a catch-free nose area.
The latest in core technology, utilizing co-extruded miniature tubes, vertically aligned and welded, with unique energy absorption properties, KoroydTM is approximately 70% lighter than standard balsa wood, with no loss in strength or flex. This engineered core is utilized in the tip and tail areas of the HIGHLANDER, DOPPLEGÄNGER and VICTORIA models for a smoother ride, and reduced swing mass and overall weight.
Reflex Core Profile: Enhanced Profile Control
A thinner core profile between your feet improves handling and increases torsional flex, allowing you to steer your board through a turn with ease.
Diamond Laminates: Ultralight and Powerful
Well-balanced layers of carbon fiber establish a new level in performance. More snap and liveliness provide a smooth, powerful and effortless ride.
Joining forces with our friends at Amplid® Snowboards, we are utilizing their unique Antiphase™ technology which reduces vibrations and greatly improves board stability. Unlike conventional damping, which relies on rubber elastomers to reduce vibrations, Antiphase™ is a multidirectional composite layer bonded to a non-Newtonian material, which is placed between the tip and binding. It disrupts the natural frequency of an oscillating snowboard, stopping vibrations which otherwise amplify and end up as tip chatter. Ride faster and stay in control!
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.
