If the Nitro Fate women’s snowboard looks familiar, you were probably watching the freestyle events at the Winter Olympics. Both Laurie Blouin (silver, slopestyle) and Zoe Sadowski-Synnott (bronze, big air) picked up their bling whilst riding this.
Despite all that five-ring success, the Nitro Fate isn’t exclusively a park board. Its directional twin shape and slightly setback inserts are just a couple of the hallmarks of a classic all-mountain option.
“The Nitro Fate is a true all-terrain vehicle for confident female riders”
Thanks to the profile (camber with mellow rocker sections at each end), you can take the Fate anywhere and have a blast. Get the most out of the bend when you’re on an edge, or use it to pop to the moon off a side hit or park feature. When you’d prefer to mess around on the flat, the nose and tail are immensely pressable, and work well in powder too.
As for the build, it’s quality all the way. Lighter wood is used in the core, and it’s thinner between the bindings to make it more maneuverable. All this has been done without any loss of strength. The sintered base will give you enough speed to clear any size of booter, or just make the most of a steep, wide-open face.
The Nitro Fate is a true all-terrain vehicle for confident female riders, with stellar freestyle credentials to boot.
