The Nitro Squash swallowtail snowboard floats like a boat, carves like a pro and can catch sky like a bird. The Squash has been received so well since its inception that it has already won multiple prestigious awards and become one of our most popular board models
This award-winning beauty provides the best of both worlds, unparalleled float in the powder with a turn so nice it will make you never want to leave the groomers. The Squash´s perfect blend of a Progressive Sidecut and Trüe Camber allows you to lay into carves like you do it for a living. The Tapered Swallowtail Shaped will allow you to charge with finesse through the choppiest of conditions, while the Sintered Speed Formula HD Base will allow you to get out of the flats with ease and speed. This season we have also added a version for the regular humans out there with a new 156 cm model. If you are looking for a snowboard to have fun on during the deepest of days or the most regular of days, then do like the Nitro family and Squash It!
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.
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.
