The new Alternator is the result of listing to the Team Riders and focusing their experiences on a board that offers the best all-terrain ride on the market for any experienced rider. Jared Elston and Griffin Seibert have been avid riders of the Team Pro, the Banker, and Team boards, and they wanted to take the best of all these boards and create a board that offers better performance on those deeper days while maintaining that everyday ride feel. Dare we say a true Quiver Killer? The new directional shape and progressive width allow for more float and surface area for turns, sprays, and stomping, while the high kick in the tail allows for effortless switch pow riding. The specific blend of Trüe Camber, Reflex Core Profile, and Diamond Band provides natural flex and board support; Nitro is renowned for allowing you to maximize any situation. In addition, the Bi-Lite Laminates and Powerlite Core will provide a response and pop on and off natural or man-made features that professionals demand. Finally, the Sintered Speed Formula II will give you a new sense of speed that will keep you up at night—built specifically for those looking for the best All-Terrian Freestyle snowboard the world has ever seen.
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.
Powerlite Core: Lightweight Performance and Pop
The highest grade of ultra-lightweight poplar wood in our Powerlite core makes for the perfect ride with lots of pop and unmatched strength at a minimum 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.
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.
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.
