Built For Speed

It´s time to clear your shelf because the Banker is engineered to bring home some serious bank slalom hardware. The team favorite Quiver Banker´s shape, sintered base, and responsive core will help you fly through banked turns with ease and power, making it the fastest board in the Quiver Series.

The Quiver Banker Snowboard hauls in and out of banked slaloms, groomers, and pow fields no matter what mountain range you find yourself racing in. For years Bryan and Tommy have wanted a board that will be their go-to turning and burning board, and this is what we have engineered - a board so powerful and fast you will need a strap for your hat. The Bankers Directional and Mid-Wide shape allow you to lay into turns like you do it for a living. The Trüe Camber and Sintered Speed Formula II Base will provide you with speed and power right out of the gates. If you are looking for an everyday all-mountain speed machine with a passion for ripping groomer turns or high speeds through the trees, then the Banker was designed to help you go faster than you have ever imagined!

Trüe Camber

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.

Progressive Sidecut

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.

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.

Bi-Lite Laminates: Forgiving and Strong

Our rider-trusted Bi-Lite Laminates are engineered for unrivalled strength, powerful style and refined board-feel.

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 Carbon Neutral by investing into climate change projects and solutions. Reducing, rethinking, and compensating for CO2 emissions is just the start.
