Nitro Optiysm Snowboard

ROCKER : Cam-Out Camber – A classic camber shape with early and smooth transitions into tip and tail. The result is a fun and responsive board that turns on the spot and is forgiving, even after that 713.5° landing!
FLEX:  Flex Rating – 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) Urban – This ultra-flexible board can be tweaked any way you like, from rails to butter tricks, and it won't wash out on you.

SHAPEDual Degressive Sidecut – This sidecut blends a smaller radius in the center with two larger radii in the tip and tail, making it loose and playful. Nitro's most forgiving sidecut.
Whiplash Core Profile – This profile features reduced thickness between the inserts with added meat outside your feet for maximum ollie power while maintaining a perfect press flex.

Power Core II – A tip-to-tail poplar wood core with beech wood stringers offers unrivaled strength, smooth response, and insane snap.

LAMINATES: Bi-Lite Laminates – Nitro's rider-trusted Bi-Lite Laminates are engineered for a powerful riding style and a refined board-feel.
Ureshred Sidewalls – Just like skate wheels and bushings, these sidewalls are made from polyurethane, which makes them highly resistant against impact and abrasion as well as giving them excellent dampening characteristics.

Powerwall – New construction of Ureshred Polyurethane sidewall material integrated into the core strengthens the core on the heelside edge. The sidewall material has a curved design in the wood core and a +20mm peak in between the bindings. This additional sidewall material provides extra durability and damping properties while improving the agility to get on an doff your heelside edge. Powerwall gives more support for flatland tricks and added durability for carving and knuckle tricks.

Premium Extruded FH Base – Durability, speed, and low maintenance all in one ultra clear base material.

EDGES: Rail Killer Edge X-2 – Your secret weapon for rails, rocks, and longevity! With its unique edge profile and an impact resistance of more than 200% compared to a standard edge, the Rail Killer Edge is twice as thick and twice as strong. This proprietary construction can take on any rail challenge. Take a file to them or ride them hard and wear them down naturally, this chunk of steel has enough meat for years of abuse.

Nitro is no stranger to the asym freestyle board, having a history of recognizing the unbalanced nature of standing sideways. With the Nitro Optisym Snowboard, they've balanced and reinforced the different ways in which riders use their tools. The Optisym is first and foremost a centered, twintip jib board, made for park and urban riding. Cool. Where it really differs from traditional boards is not only its asym shape, but its construction. The heelside of this board is reinforced with an extra helping of skate wheel urethane, to better handle the bashing that side of a rail board sees. It's predictable and flexy, too, perfect for everything from tail blocks and flatground stuff to presses and wall splats. The Optisym is weird in all the right ways - hop on one and see for yourself.
