NITRO DROP SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2018-2019
TESTER: Micah Anderson
BOARD BRAND: Nitro
MODEL NAME: drop
OVERALL IMPRESSION: RADICAL
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD? How reliable the board is. Most boards you just hop on take a couple turns to try and figure out the camber/ feel, not this board. You can just hop on it and rip, it feels as if you’re on your own board and ready to take on anything.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD? That I don’t own it. The colors for the graphic are a bit funky, not my style BUT thats such a minor thing.
OVERALL COMMENTS: This board was by far my favorite at the powwow! It was almost bad because one I got on the thing it was the only thing I really wanted to take out, even over my own board. It is super smooth and effortless in pow and just cruises groomers/ all mountain.
BOARD STYLE: POWDER BOARD, FREERIDE BOARD
CONDITIONS TESTED IN: HARDPACK, POWDER
RATE THE SHAPE (1 TO 7): RADICAL
