Description

TESTER: Tyler Macleod

BOARD: Nitro 154 Pow 154

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: A total blast in open pow. This thing is unsinkable.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: A little sketchy in the chunder. It’s so wide up front that making quick adjustments was very tricky in variable terrain.

OVERALL COMMENTS: A perfect addition to the quiver, but there is a time and place for this deck. Perfect for deep days where you can make open pow turns, but not a board that I’d want to be riding through chop with.

BOARD STYLE: POWDER BOARD      

CONDITIONS TESTED IN: HARDPACK  ICE  POWDER

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  5

SHAPE COMMENT: FUN TO LOOK AT

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  Love the short, fatty swallowtails. They look beautiful.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   5

FLEX COMMENT:  TOO STIFF

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Would’ve liked a little more liveliness in a board this short. It was pretty dang rigid, and because it was so wide, it didn’t make for as nimble of a board as I would expect.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

STABILITY COMMENT: OK

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: Got tossed around in the chunder a little bit.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: PRETTY DARN FUN

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  Fun when you’re ripping through fresh pow, but not as playful/maneuverable in other variable situations.

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:  7

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EFFORTLESSLY FLOATY

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: This board was essentially unsinkable. Couldn’t believe it.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  7

GRAPHICS COMMENT: I’M FEELING IT

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Love the Quiver graphics for next year. Clean and timeless.
