Gear Guide – Nitro 2021 Team, Snowboard Video Review

March 3rd, 2021


Mountainwatch | Joe Stanco

Now that summer is officially over and it’s a little over three  months until the start of the 2021 season, we thought we’d start checking out some hardware to get you thinking about updating for the upcoming winter. We are starting out with a snowboard review of the 2021 Nitro Team which our snowboard expert Joe Stanco tested in a 157 length last winter in Thredbo.  Joey likes it and reckons the Team is a good all-rounder for Australian conditions. It is available now in all good snowboard stores. 

Here’s what Joey has to say:

“The Nitro Team comes in sizes for everyone starting at 149 and ending at 165W. In this video I rode the 157 which is a large board for me. The Nitro Team comes in True Camber and Gullwing Shape. If you want a board to progress and make you a better ride, choose camber.

Nitro Team is perfect board for someone who wants one board to ride the mountain and park. Team is directional twin, meaning the nose is 15mm longer than the tail. The Team will also give you enough flexibility and playfullness to rip through the park.”
