The Nitro Swindle Snowboard answers the cries of rail rats who are tired of paying too much for snowboards they end up destroying anyway. Nitro left out the bells and whistles, and focused on the important stuff like a durable Powercore II core, and extra-beefy Railkiller edges designed to withstand even the most botched gap-to attempts. Add in a buttery flex and Zero-camber shape that locks into presses, blunts, and slides, and you end up with a serious street and park jibbing machine.
The Zero Camber profile is flat for a stable and forgiving feel that still retains much of the pop and edge hold you find in a cambered board. Biax fiberglass provides a buttery flex for getting loose on jibs, and beefy RailKiller edges are 20% thicker than standard edges so they can take a beating when you're throwing down in the streets. The lightweight Powercore II poplar core features inlaid beech strips for extra strength, and it's profiled so it's thinner between the bindings for maximum pressibility and thicker underfoot for durability. The new Scratch & Rip extruded base reveals a second color underneath as you start to wear away at the original graphic so that it changes appearance over time like a skate deck, and the topsheet was created by San Diego-based artist Moüse to look like one of his famous griptape designs.

- How to Measure:
- This sizing chart is meant as a guide only to help you determine the right length of board for you. Board length is very much a personal preference.
- You may wish to downsize a few centimeters if you are a beginner, or upsize if you primarily ride powder.
