The 2023 Nitro Drop has grown to be one of the most impressive and popular boards in Nitro's range simply because of how fun of a ride it is. Designed to give some of the most reliable edge control on the market, the Drop loves to charge and carve hard thanks to the reliable (but still forgiving) edge hold of its Cam-Out Camber and added Power Pods. Perfect for powder, as seen in the shape, but has a very versatile flex for all mountain groomer days as well. It is a directional shape due to the obvious bigger nose than tail, but the stance is centered over the contact points so it feels like you are riding a twin board, this is great for groomers but still gives fantastic float on deep pow days. The Cam-Out Camber also gives that little extra extra lift when in powder but won't catch as hard when ripping groomers and still carves a dream due to camber under-foot, a fast Sintered Speed Formula HD base and grippy Power Pods. Drop what you are doing, escape to the mountains, and enjoy the feeling of riding with increased confidence with the Nitro Drop.
Board Type: All-Mountain / Powder
Camber Type: Cam-Out Camber
Cam-out camber is basically positive camber with earlier and smoother transition zones in the tip and tail. This gives the board a lower rise in the centre, resulting in a fun and responsive ride with easier turn initiation and more forgiveness, giving you the benefits of camber without the aggression.
Flex: 6/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
All Terrain Flex - This is Nitro's most versatile flex pattern, combining great pop and smooth response.
Directional Flex - This board has a directional flex pattern that allows more movement in the nose with a stiffer tail for extra pop and power under your back foot.
Designed with a specific nose and tail shape, this board will perform best when riding forwards.
Comprised of tip to tail Poplar wood, which provides an ideal blend of flex, response, and feel, while remaining strong and lightweight.
Bi-Lite Laminates - Bi-Lite Laminates have fibres running in two directions, providing strength, power, and a forgiving board feel.
Base: Sintered Speed Formula HD Base
A new base material compound that is fast, absorbent and super resistant to abrasions.
Mounting Pattern: 2x4 Inserts
Radial Sidecut - A single radius along the length of the board makes this sidecut extremely versatile and predictable.
Power Pods - Nitro overlays two separate sidecut radii, a tighter one in the centre plus a larger one in the tip and tail, creating extended board width under the bindings for additional edge control on hard and icy surfaces, along with enhancing response and control.
100% Natural Speed Wax - All Nitro boards are factory-tuned with Kandahars 100% Natural Speed Wax, a fully bio-degradable wax made of renewable resources.
