Bring out the big gun.
Do you consider yourself a powder hound? Have you ever lost a job for skipping work to shred on a pow day? Do you have painful withdrawals when the sun shines for weeks on end during the winter? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then the Nitro Slash Snowboard is the board for you.
A tapered, directional shape with a long, wide nose helps it float effortlessly in the deepest snow. The Gullwing profile features rocker between the bindings with camber underfoot for a responsive ride that holds a mean edge on hardpack without compromising its ability to stay on top of powder. Biax fiberglass provides a surfy feel and Reflex core profiling thins the core between your feet to increase torsional flex for easy steering. The Powerlite core uses ultra-lightweight poplar for an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio, and Profile tips are thinner at the tip and tail to reduce swing weight. The Speed Formula HD base combines the durability and speed of a sintered base with the ease of repair and wax retention of an extruded base to give you the best of both worlds.

Hi, I wanted to know what size you would...
Hi, I wanted to know what size you would recommend for the slash for a 160lb dude... it seems a lot of guys are riding shorter in their pow boards these days. I generally ride all mountain boards and rode a 157 Ride GT Machete in Niseko last year, which isn't exactly designed for that kind of deep snow so it was a lot of work. I like the idea of going smaller than the 157, but just want to know where the end point in weight range would realistically be for the 154.?. Appreciate any feedback about this.
i think weight on this board doesnt really matters, you are standing on tail. Anyway your weight is not big and possible that will hard to get up your nose on 157.
Powder Days Just Got Better!!!
The best pow board. Period.

If you love to ride powder as much as I do, you know how much the right board can change your experience from a good one to a great one. Float, response, and playfulness all play a huge role in the design of the perfect pow quiver board. The Nitro Slash is everything you could want for those days when you escape into the deep stuff. The Gullwing camber coupled with the tapered shape and set back stance will keep you floating on the deepest days. The graphics are amazing and will make sure everyone is jealous as you are slashing passed them. The Slash is both playful and responsive when you need it to be. Even when you are on the groomers the Slash is fun to turn, however it really excels in the trees and chutes. I would recommend this board to anyone looking for a pow specific quiver board that is as fun to ride as it is functional.
