Advanced+ level all-mountain boarder
Alex's rating of this snowboard:
Considering his boarders profile:
"Which board has the highest limits on every terrain? Push and enjoy it to the max everywhere. Adrenaline comes from sharp long carves till blinding amounts of fresh snow in the woods. All-mountain snowboards should be able to handle it all."
My favourite all-mountain snowboards:
1. Nitro Pantera
2. Amplid UNW8
3. Capita Supernova
To all my reviews
Great stiff camber all-mountain board
A great steady snowboard at carvingspeed on a firm piste and for riding powder snow. The Nitro Pantera is a stiff Camber so no lazy fun. You’ll have to work to get the best out of this board. I have to adjust the binding settings for on and off piste to get the best all-mountain experience. Not my favorite thing, but it pays off. Not a playful forgiving board, just the way I like it. An absolute top Nitro camber snowboard, which comes close to the piste snowboards.
Stable and aggressive
It’s not a beginners board at all, too stiff for that I think. To me the Pantera is better for carving than for riding deep powder. I do both, but sometimes it’s really hard work to keep it floating and do short turns. It’s a camber snowboard and it just loves long turns I guess. On nice groomed pistes it is perfect to take it to its limits. So stable, so much “pop”, it lets you accelerate out of the turn. Then aggressive into the next one, it challenges you to give your best.
Nitro about the Pantera
"The Pantera is the definition of heritage. This all mountain beast has been an icon in the snowboard world for years because of its unmatched performance, precision, and snap. Navigating the mountain with the Pantera strapped to your feet will be the ride of your life. One toe-side turn and you´ll never look back. Years of development have created a beast that is ready to be unleashed.", says Nitro. I expected it to be good quality and the Pantera delivers 100%.
Rossignol One Magtek: versatile good all-mountain board, less demanding.
Salomon Rancho: top speed and direct lines in powder too.
Arbor A-Frame: same category, very good.
