Reviewer Steef

"In powder I want float and a bit of flex. I don't mind to work hard for a perfect powder run, as long as it pays off. Blue skies, bottomless powder describes paradise. Looking for adventure sometimes brings me to the edge."

To all my reviews


Nice all-mountain snowboard to me

The Nitro Highlander (163 cm) is to me a nice all-mountain board, suitable from intermediate to advanced+ riders. Easy driving, nice off-piste en supple on piste. Quite good grip and a moderate pop. Neutral handling with a good balance.

Easy handling

For me the Highlander board excels more off-piste than on piste. On piste it is supple and easy without any thrill. For some this is good news because the Nitro Highlander does everything right with ease and peace, but I like it when a board provides a rush of adrenaline when driving it and I miss that with the Highlander. Off-piste though, it behaves perfect and predictable. A 4 star snowboard for me.

Nitro about the Highlander

"The absolute lightest weight technology combined with new KOROYD® technology to create the lightest and most responsive board in the entire Nitro lineup. This Directional boss has a perfect mix of response and aggressiveness, supplied by a combination of TRÜE Camber and Diamond Laminates, for flying down any face in any condition. The KOROYD® in the tip and tail provide an amazing swing weight reduction for increased control. Our Power Pods allow for high-speed turns and edge hold on any surface. The bar has been raised.", says Nitro. No aggressiveness in my opinion but just a good all mountain board.
