Nitro-Snowboards-Stand-Overview-2015-2016-2
Founded in 1990 - Nitro snowboards are hitting their quarter century this year - and we caught up with the Seattle born brand at ISPO 2015 to see exactly what they have in store for next season.

Born out of a desire to create quality gear at a time when there wasn't quite so much to choose from, they've stuck it out for the long haul, and branched into boards, boots, bindings and outerwear with equal success. Which is why they're now able to offer a great range of rides in all categories - so you'll always be able to find the right stick for you.

On the Nitro team you'll now find a smorgasbord of big names from across the globe - with Eero Ettala, Austin Smith, Elias Elhardt, Mark Swoboda and Anna Gasser in amongst them, just to name a few.

Nitro-Good_Times-Taxwood_Hobush_Pro-Snowboards-2015-2016

Nitro's stand this year bore the legend "Built For Good Times" - and their flagship board for this mantra goes by the same name too.

Available in a Nirvana-like smiley as well as Sam Taxwood and Brandon Hobush pro models (above/right and below) - it's a straight-up freestyle whip that comes in standard and wide, and is based on the old Swindle.

Made more forgiving and easier to press because of its flat-out rocker - it also maintains the snap and stability of camber because of its Whiplash core profile.
