The 2023 Nitro Banker Snowboard performs just like its namesake and was designed to perform in banked slaloms, hauling on groomers, and smashing through powder pillows. A favourite of both Nitro team riders and the everyday snowboard enthusiast alike, the lightweight shape, fast base, and snappy responsive core make riding through any sort of terrain a breeze and with the Trüe camber profile, directional shape and fastest base that Nitro makes, it is a perfect board for the freeride fanatic that craves high speeds and deep carve. If you are entering a banked slalom event, it would be foolish to consider anything but the Banker.
Board Type: All-Mountain / Powder
Camber Type: Trüe Camber
The original camber type, unmatched for strong snap and powerful response. Each True Camber board in the Nitro range has its own special tweak to suit its intended terrain type, keeping the camber shape with a more specialized ride.
Flex: 8/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
All-Terrain Flex: This is Nitro's most versatile all-terrain 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.
This directional shape features an exaggerated nose and tapered tail to keep the nose up, the tail down, and keep you upright instead of nosediving.
Core: PowerCore ll
A performance driven core with tip to tail Poplar wood and additional Beech Wood stringers. The result: Unmatched strength, smooth response, and a tonne of snap.
Reflex Core Profile: The Reflex Core Profile thins out the core between your feet, making your board thickest under the inserts. This improves handling, increases torsional flex, and allows you to steer through turns with ease.
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 base material that is fast, absorbent and super resistant to abrasions.
Mounting Pattern: 2x4 Inserts
Progressive Sidecut: A larger radius sidecut in the nose that blends into a tighter radius in the tail, keeping your turns fast and catch-free.
