The new Alternator x Volcom is the result of listing to the Team Riders and focusing their experiences into a board that offers the best all-terrain ride on the market for any experienced rider. The Nitro Team and Volcom family have been avid riders of the Team Pro, the Banker, and Team snowboards for years. They wanted to take the best of all these boards and create a board that offers better performance on deeper days while maintaining that everyday ride feel. Dare we say a true Quiver Killer? The new directional shape and progressive width allow for more float and surface area for turns, sprays, and stomping, while the high kick in the tail allows for effortless switch pow riding. The specific blend of Trüe Camber, Reflex Core Profile, and Diamond Band provides natural flex and board support; Nitro is renowned for allowing you to maximize any situation. In addition, the Bi-Lite Laminates and Powerlite Core will provide a response and pop on and off natural or man-made features that professionals demand. Finally, the Sintered Speed Formula II will give you a new sense of speed that will keep you up at night—built specifically for those looking for the best All-Terrian Freestyle snowboard the world has ever seen.
Trüe Camber is good old standard camber, which provides the stability, and pop many shreds can ́t live without. The amount of snap and support you get from a cambered board is unrivalled by any other camber design. Our Trüe Camber varies between board models because each board is specifically designed for a certain terrain or type of riding, for example the Trüe Camber in our Pantera has a larger height for maximum response, while the Trüe Camber in our freestyle boards are lower to provide you with a more freestyle friendly flex, without losing the support and trust you need for stomping landings. Camber is Camber there is no point in over complicating it!
A larger radius in the front, blended into a tighter one towards the tail: The progressive sidecut makes accelerating out of turns a breeze, while maintaining a catch-free nose area.
