Snowboard Nitro Slash

Note: The actual colour of the board's base may be different than the one shown on the picture. Brands make them randomly.

Remember the Slash? Well, it returns for 2016 and it is as hungry for powder as it was last year. If you like surfing on steep wild and hidden slopes, get ready for blast! 

What can the Nitro Slash do? 

The Slash is back in the line but comes with a few upgrades making it even better than what it was. Its new Flat Out Rocker (flat camber through midsection, rockered tips) delivers incredible floatation and control while maintaining stability at high speed. 

This is the board you take out on powder days! Whether it’s been snowing an inch or 3 feet, the board delivers reliable performance and high manoeuverability. You can slash with the Slash, you will understand why it carries this name. But Nitro’s engineers know that fresh snow isn’t always falling and they wanted their board to be versatile enough to handle all snow conditions. So they made a few twists in the shape and flex and improved the board’s behaviour on crud and on hardpack so that you can ride your Slash whatever the conditions! 

Who is the Nitro Slash for? 

The Slash is good, but the Slash is demanding. Only advanced and expert skiers should manage the board without too much trouble. It is a great board that delivers tons of versatility with particular skills on powder.

Baseplate - Chassis

  • Delta Light  :

    Engineered with the highest quality aluminum and fiber reinforced nylon. This ultra light weight baseplate was designed to enhance response and board feel. The weight on this baseplate was dramatically reduced by removing heavy plastic and replacing it with an EVA dampening pad. Delta-lite has an all new contact pad placed directly on the board to better dampen and take riding to a whole new level. A versatile, all-terrain performance baseplate that’s fully customizable for superior fit.

  • Natural cant  :

    Customize your riding stance maintaining the natural riding position in order to facilitate the natural inclination of the legs! It features the Rebound heel absorber low density cushioning to increase in the heel area the absorption of the vibrations and the dampening in landings. Thanks to the new Natural Cant pad the riding flavor will smell differently.

Highback

  • Light Frame  :

    Good news for the lovers of lightness! The new Light Frame keeps the same benefits of a full frame highback without the weight! It's a perfect mix of torsion and response while dramatically reducing the weight of the highback. This guarantees that it is comfortable, forgiving with no compromise of the support. And no extra weight.

Straps - Buckles

  • MG 12  :

    Take the quickest, and most efficient ratchet in the market, appreciated for its ability to slide five ladder steps every crank and its ergonomic shape to fasten the ratcheting and releasing operations. Then reduce the weight by 25% using Magnesium instead of aluminum and add even more precision with the new metal button release. You have yet to try the best.

  • Convertible Toe Glove  :

    This revolutionary uretane strap ensures perfect fit over the toe of the boot. Its two flexible wings go around the toes,

    automatically forming a gapless bond between strap and boot, which keeps them secure in the binding. They can also be

    positioned in their original mode across the front of the toes.

  • Premium MFC ankle strap  :

    Comfort, response, and flex in a luxuriously constructed strap.

    New internal padding for extra flex and coheasion with boot and binding interface. Featured on the Fifty binding, which is the best Drake's “value for the money”.

Various

  • Disc Classic  :

    The original Drake disc that mounts on 4-hole and 3-hole pattern without hassles. Don't waste time looking for ways to rig a custom stance. The classic gives you the option to personalize your drake binding setup with any board brand you ride.
