The Nitro Magnum Freeride Mid Wide Snowboard 2019 is a rare breed of Snowboard that rides like a standard width but is build as a wide for big footed people.
So how have Nitro managed to do this. Well, with the Powerlite Core, they have used the highest grade of ultra lightweight poplar wood and combined it with Bi-lite laminates and a reflex core profile.
All of this makes for good torsional flex (flex along the length of the board between the feet) which allows the board to FEEL like a regular width board when ridden but of course with no feet overhang. We put this to the test earlier this year when we took one out for a spin and had a ball. No toe or heel drag and yet it felt so dreamy and easy to ride.
And theres even more good news, the extra width and volume in the nose and tail, lends itself to maximum float in powder.
Add to this the Sintered Speed Formula base and you can be charging the pistes while dipping in and out between the trees and inbound off piste areas.
As per usual, the Magnum shows off its poplar wood core through the top sheet giving a beatiful natural looking finish with a graphic overlay that only enhnaces the finsish even more. She’s a thing of beauty.
