The Optisym was inspired by all those snowboarders who enjoy turning everything, even a groomed run, into a playground, switching from airtime tricks to flat ground tricks within seconds. This snowboarding style is probably the most relatable and achievable freestyle snowboarding - which is why we decided to make a board for the flatlands - the dreamers - the Optisym.
Equipped with a brand new heelside core technology, called the Powerwall, which provides more durability and strength to the heel sidewall and more agility when on your heel edge, something unique to the asymmetrical snowboard shape philosophy. The Optisym´s mid-wide shape reduces toe and heel drag, which is essential for progressing your carves, butters, and flatland tricks. The overall asymmetrical twin shape and Dual Degressive sidecut allows for endless control when carving and navigating the entire mountain. The Cam-Out Camber and Whiplash Core Profile allow for quick and high ollie power while maintaining a flex pattern in the nose and tail that will enable you to hold butters like a pro. If you are looking for a mid-wide freestyle board for side hits, flatlanding, carving, and jibbing any mountain - then the Optisym is the board you need to make your future bright! Let the groomer season begin!
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!
Urban: Smooth and Loose
These ultra-flexible boards can be tweaked any way you like, from rails to butter tricks, and they won’t wash out on you.
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.
Whiplash Core Profile: Maximum Ollie Power
This profile features reduced thickness between the inserts with added meat outside your feet for maximum ollie power, while maintaining a perfect press flex.
New! Ureshred Sidewalls
New on all Nitro park boards, we are introducing our URESHRED sidewall: Just like Skate wheels and bushings, these sidewalls are made from Polyurethane, which makes them highly resistant against impact and abrasion as well as giving them excellent dampening characteris- tics. Together with our exclusive Railkiller Edges, our URESHRED sidewalls provide the ultimate package of edge durability 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.
Your secret weapon for rails, rocks and longevity! With its unique edge profile and an impact resistance of more than 200% compared to a standard edge – the Railkiller Edge is twice as thick and twice as strong. This proprietary construction can take on any rail challenge. Take a file to them or ride them hard and wear them down naturally, this chunk of steel has enough meat for years of abuse.
Premium Extruded FH Base: Easy and Versatile
Durability, speed and low maintenance all in one ultra-clear base material - our FH Base takes the abuse of rail and urban riding like no other.
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.
