Engineered to make any terrain and condition playful, the Dropout is the mutant spawn of the trusted Squash and takes its attitude and fun ride to a more affordable price point. The Dropout´s design offers the perfect blend of a powder specific shape with an all-mountain attitude, allowing you to dip in and out of the trees all day long.
This affordable Directional, Mid-Wide, setback pow shaped board can charge the entire mountain with a touch of fun, without being too responsive and hard to control. The combination of the Dropout´s Cam-Out Camber and Powercore offers a forgiving surf-like ride from top to bottom. The Power Pods offer an insane turning radius, and a reliable edge hold no matter how icy or deep the day. Designed for those looking to have more fun, but are not willing to give up the stability of your current set-up, than look no further than the versatile, reliable, and fun shaped Dropout.
Our Cam-Out Camber is basically a Trüe Camber with early and smooth transitions into tip and tail. The result is a fun and responsive board that turns on the spot and is forgiving, even after that 713.5° landing!
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.
Overlaying a tighter sidecut radius in the center of the board with a larger one towards tip and tail is creating our exclusive POWERPODS which have two amazing effects: On one hand, there is extended board width under the bindings, resulting in additional edge control, especially on hard and icy surfaces as well as simply less toe and heel drag for larger boots and flatter stance angles. On the other hand, our POWERPODS make the board super reactive and fast turning once it’s put on edge – while keeping it easy to control if ridden with less dynamics.
Powercore: Performance Driven
Our Powercore uses tip-to-tail poplar wood, providing lightweight strength and the perfect blend of flex, response and feel.
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 HD Base: High Density - High Durability
Utilizing a new base material compound, we have been able to achieve higher abrasion resistance, increased wax absorption and higher onsnow speeds.
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.
