The Nitro Squash´s now-legendary ride is so unique we have created a new category – PowGroomer, because its swallowtail shape floats like a boat, carves like a pro, and catches airtime like an eagle. Its versatility in both the powder and on the groomers is so well-rounded that Squash has won multiple prestigious awards, become one of our most popular board models, and now has its category.
This award-winning versatile snowboard provides the best of both worlds, unparalleled float in the powder, and a turn so nice it will make you never want to leave the groomers. Therefore, we are officially starting a new category for the Squash – The PowGroomer category, where boards built for powder and carving groomers belong. 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. In addition, the Tapered Swallowtail Shaped will enable 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. So if you are looking for a snowboard to have fun on during the deepest of days or the most regular of days, then check out the Squash, a board that offers the best ride in everyone’s favorite conditions, powder and groomers!
Shape: Tapered Swallowtail - Longer nose and a shorter, thinner tail.
Bend: True 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!
Sidecut: Progressive - 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.
Core: Powercore II - The Powercore II is a tip-to-tail poplar wood core with additional beech wood stringers for unrivalled strength, smooth response and insane snap.
Fibreglass: Bi-Lite Laminates - Well-balanced layers of carbon fiber establish a new level in performance. More snap and liveliness provide a smooth, powerful and effortless ride. Carbon reinforcement fibers are ultra-strong yet lightweight.
Base: Sintered Speed Formula HD Base - Utilizing a new base material compound, we have been able to achieve higher abrasion resistance, increased wax absorption and higher on-snow speeds.
All Terrain Flex - Our most versatile flex pattern, combining Nitro’s signature pop with smooth response, allowing you to tear up the entire mountain.
