They say: The perfect choice for any female rider who wants to expand her skills.
We say: A stiff-ish directional twin aimed at the more experienced rider – the kind of chick who wants a stick that’ll charge around the hill and lay down sweet pow lines with her. The zero camber means it holds an edge beautifully.
Tester says: This board handled all conditions – powder this morning, slush in the afternoon.

- Building boards since: 1990
- HQ: Seattle, WA, USA
- History lesson: Nitro was kick-started in Seattle in 1990, emerging kicking and screaming slap bang in the middle of the Grunge explosion that would make the city famous. While Kurt Cobain and co screamed their disapproval with the status quo up on stage, Nitro channeled the same spirit onto their boards. To this day the brand is known for its dark graphics – often featuring skulls – and its love of Iron Maiden’s favourite font.
- Ridden by: Scandinavian black metal bands on their days off, skate-punks who throw the horns any time they think something’s even remotely cool, and long-haired dudes who wear chains.
