THE PRO'S TAKE
Some boards just rip, the Nidecker Thruster is one of those snowboards. This board likes to carve low and ollie high. Surprisingly stable and chatter free, the Thruster carves up the mountain with ease. With the light core and added carbon, the board is fun and lively when popping off knolls and kickers!
We’ve poured decades of experience shaping performance snowboards into this new all-mountain charger. Introducing the Thruster. Combining elements of our previous best-selling models, the Platinum and Rave, with the latest in 3D design, the Thruster is made for aggressive high speed carving. It’s built on the lightest core in the Nidecker line, with a powerful camber profile and a super dense N-9000 sintered base that minimizes drag. Trust us when we say this thing is blazingly fast.
SideKick tips raise the wide points off the snow, making it smoother to engage the edges and helping the nose plow through deep snow and crud. Added carbon and an Absorbnid topsheet deliver a stable, chatter-free ride even when your eyes are watering. The name of the game here is control. It’s a missile, sure, but it’s laser-guided.
With the Thruster's strong construction, you can ride this board a few centimeters shorter than your normal snowboard length.
