Reviewer Alex

"Easy float, let me hike, surf and play any terrain. I don't like a powder board to be too flexible, because I want to lay some trenches on the groomers too. When the snow starts falling in the evening, I get happily nervous for the next day."

Deep powder and slick groomers


The Nitro Quiver Squash (tested at 159 cm) looks like a specialized freeride snowboard with the fish tail and rocker nose, but it offers more. Nitro made the Quiver Squash with such torsional stiffness that riding edges on slick groomers is no problem. The freeride performance of the Quiver Squash is especially good in deeper powder snow. The long rocker tip will keep you floating while you can stay balanced. Without much effort this makes that maneuvering through fresh snow is just surfing down where you steer it. A good and cool freeride snowboard this Nitro Quiver Squash, 4.5 stars on my personal scale.

Crud and camber

Nitro Quiver Squash is stable when carving down pistes and easy to maneuver in fresh snow. Snow conditions in between those are a different story though. It is not strong enough to crush crud and icy conditions while staying stable. Although the Quiver Squash is quite stiff in the middle section with camber shape, the rocker tip is probably a bit too flexible or big for this terrain. The comfort the Quiver Squash supplies in with the rocker tip makes that advanced snowboarders can ride it though. And the camber does give the energy back which makes it nice for carving short turns and speed up without getting nervous on groomed pistes.

Nitro about the Quiver Squash

"Built for turning and burning.", says Nitro.
