This board is absolutely amazing! I took it out to Park City the other day and it spins awesome, it can hold great speed and not get chatter, I got the 149 which is a bit small for a freeride board, I was worried I would max out the speed on it, but it did amazing, it has a great side cut which is very responsive. I have not tried it on rails yet, but it is a bit stiffer, not super buttery, but I am sure some time on it might break it down, My other Nitrous did not break down very fast and still are poppy and stiff after 2 seasons of hard riding on them. You can not go wrong with a NITRO!!
