Nitro Cannon 173 Snowboard Review 2018-2019- Rated Radical!

Description

TESTER: Rob Kingwill

BOARD: Nitro Cannon 173

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  Radical (10)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: This giant pink monster rips everything!

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I would say that it is a tiny bit too stiff tortionally for most people.

OVERALL COMMENTS: I took this pink rocket straight up to Pucker Face and dropped in at 50mph. She handled it like it was nothing. The geometry allows for good float in pow, an nice stiff swallowtail that holds up under pressure, and also rips hardpack and chop super well. Very impressed with this board, it is built the way swallowtails should be built.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

SHAPE COMMENT: AT THING OF BEAUTY

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  Great aesthetic, well proportioned nose and ideal swallowtail length.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   5

FLEX COMMENT:  TOO STIFF

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Longitudinally perfect flex, but tortionally a bit stiff for me, and I like stiff boards.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:   RADICAL

STABILITY COMMENT: ROCK SOLID- AS GOOD AS IT GETS

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: Take it to 100mph.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  6
