This experimental ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) snowboard is the brainchild of world-class ATV snowboarder Elias Elhardt. Designed to be the most fun and reliable snowboard you can have under your feet no matter where you find yourself on the mountain. The SANTOKU is so diverse even park-style masters have made it their go-to shred stick.
The SANTOKU snowboard is the ultimate "ATV" snowboard, guaranteed to be the most fun board choice underfoot in any condition or terrain. Built together with snowboarding ATV Elias Elhardt and backed by park-jibbers worldwide as the perfect snowboard to turn the entire mountain into a personal playground, with its All-Terrain Twin shape and extended tip and tail lengths allowing for more float in the pow and longer butters over the rollers. In addition, the beautiful combination of Trüe Camber and Diamond Bands provides the super pop and response you need for kicking out more airtime. At the same time, the Dual Degressive Sidecut and Whiplash Core Profile let you carve, and butter like it's your profession. The Santoku is built like a utility knife, providing the tools for any situation, and will allow you to make the entire mountain your personal playground.
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!
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.
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.
Dual Degressive Sidecut
This sidecut blends a smaller radius in the center with two larger ones in the tip and tail, making it loose and playful. Nitro's most forgiving sidecut.
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.
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.
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.
