2024/25 Nitro Splitboarding Gear:
The year 2024 marks 30 years of Nitro Splitboarding since the introduction of the TOUR 169cm Splitboard back in 1994. Today, Nitro offers a refined line of splitboarding gear. Starting with a board program of various shapes that are dialed-in for all types of touring and terrain, including custom fitted skins. The VERTICAL binding, co-developed with the leading specialists at Spark R&D and crampon-compatible, splitboarding specific boots, hiking poles and a line of backpacks designed with a focus on backcountry snowboarding. While Splitboarding in its early stage was highly experimental and a constant work in progress, today’s products have reached a level where shops and customers alike, can purchase well engineered products without having to macgyver the gear to make it work. Boards riding got very close to their  solid counterparts, bindings are well-engineered and reliable even in harsh conditions and converting from hiking- to riding-mode is the smoothest it has ever been. Don’t need to be a splitboarding nerd to find the right product, mount it and go hiking…that’s what makes the sport accessible and fun and the category popular in past years.

Whats new?
We have added sizes to some of the boards, refined camber lines and tweaked functional details on every category, here is what you can expect from Nitro next season.



A line of 7 splitboards range from the super lightweight VERTICAL for the up-hill oriented, high-alpine athlete to the SLASH powder shape with its 3D surftech base shaping for those riders setting a focus on the ride down. In between, models like the new NOMAD and VOLTA, now featuring cam-out camber and longer noses, set the reference for the most affordable board to get into Splitboarding. The TEAM Split is the favorite among the backcountry freestyle riders, build solid and strong to go big. The new SQUASH is the perfect hybrid, a pow board with a long nose and swallow tail, yet the perfect sidecut to lay down turns when the resort is your journey today. Above all models is the DOPPELGANGER, the go-to shape in the line, combining a high-end construction and well-rounded performance without breaking your bank. Now invest the money you just saved into a MINIGANGER (available in size 134 and now also 141cm) and bring your kids on the next hike, making it a family experience. We offer perfectly fitted climbing skins from Kohla for each shape and length, set up with hooks on both ends to mount to every Nitro Split in just seconds. All Nitro boards are 100% C02 compensated.
