The Nimbus 2001 was produced by the Nimbus Racing Broom Company as part of their successful line of racing brooms. Released in August, 1992, it was faster than its predecessor, the Nimbus 2000. It officially became the fastest broom in existence, until the launch of the Firebolt in 1993. The broom itself is black and gold (or silver), with revolving stirrups. Despite the Firebolt being faster, the Nimbus 2001 is still used by the majority of Quidditch teams across the globe.

Conception of the Nimbus 2001.

The Slytherin Quidditch team was outfitted with Nimbus 2001s by Lucius Malfoy, with the suggestion being that the gift was in exchange for his son, Draco Malfoy being made Seeker. It is unknown whether the students who joined the team in later years, such as C. Warrington, Vincent Crabbe, and Gregory Goyle, were given this model of broomstick when they joined the team or if they had to use the broomstick that they already had (if they had one). If the new players were not given Nimbus 2001s when they joined the team and did not have brooms of their own, they probably had to use one of the old school brooms.
