Reviewer Steef

"Enjoying the whole mountain needs a maximum of piste carving, float in powder and playfulness. And for some decent carving on piste with acceleration a condition is good edge grip and camber. I am prepared to work for it."

To all my reviews

 

Nice allrounder board


I found the pretty looking Nitro Blacklight Camber (163cm) an easy handling all-mountain snowboard. Supple handling bumps, good dampening in disordered terrain and good float for some nice maneuvering through powder. This board feels well balanced, no adjusting is needed. Only for carving and speeding on groomed slopes I missed some bite and pop to give it more thrill. Overall a 3 star rating for me.

Easy everyday use

If you want to have a good day on the mountain doing a bit of everything, this board is your friend. Not too stiff to shoot you off on bumps or in disordered terrain, but stiff enough and with a little pop to do some nice turning on piste. It is not demanding in use, you can have a day of fun without returning home exhausted at the end of the day.

Nitro about the Blacklight

"Years of testing and developing has led to a board so well-tuned we can honestly say this is the best of the best. Equipped with TRÜE Camber for unmatched response, and Diamond Laminates for pop so powerful you should probably have a license to Ollie. Outside the heel and toe edge of the bindings we have added Power Pods for an edge hold so perfect that you can finally lay into those carves like you have always dreamed of. This technology packed mid-wide terrain killer will allow you to annihilate any terrain that lies before you any day of the week", says Nitro. Yes the board handles it all quite well, but because of that allround character it is not excelling in a certain way. So if you are a more demanding or powerful boarder, I say look further.

Related snowboards

Arbor Roundhouse: for more playfulness off-piste.
Burton Custom X: is just as allround but stiffer.
GNU Beast: an allround board too, with more bite and better grip for carving.
