The World´s Most Famous Swallowtail

The Swallowtail that has taken the world by storm, is offered in two sizes, the versatile 173cm and the big boy 203cm. Both sizes ride smaller than their length because of their effective edge being reduced, but they both provide speed, incomparable float, and good times!

The Cannon has become one of the most famous snowboards over the last few seasons thanks to Bryan Fox and the rest of the Nitro Pro team ripping this gun all over the world in halfpipe contests (Markus Keller), to the steeps in AK. The Cannon is offered in two sizes 173cm and 203cm, giving you the option to go all out or completely bananas. The 173cm provides a board that is nothing short of a powerhouse on and off the piste. The 203cm length offers extra float and wow factor in the line-up, chair, and down the wide-open back bowls. The timeless swallowtail shape and Cam-Out Camber provide the stability and float you need from steep groomers in the Rocky Mountains to untouched pow in the Swiss Alps.

Cam-Out Camber

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.

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.

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.

FSC Certified: 100% wood from well-managed forests

for the future of snowboard development, but more importantly the future of the planet and our Forrests. We are proud to officially announce that all of our boards are made with wood cores harvested 100% from well-managed forests and we are therefor entitled to use the official FSC™ label on all of our snowboards.
