Nitro Ultimate 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Nitro Ultimate is for those that love the high speed freeride idea of the Pantera but not the tapered shape and very set back stance.  The Ultimate also has a nice ultralight tech that isn’t that un-sturdy.  If you are into directional speed, love the technical challenge of camber and want a really light board the Ultimate could be a good call.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

The Nitro Ultimate is one of those boards that isn’t for everyone but some could really love.  First, you have to have a Mid-sized or mid/wide foot.  Second, you need to love speed.  Normally a design this directional would have a bigger setback but the good riders who like to keep their control at speed have their boards almost centered.  So this is why the Ultimate only has a set back of -15mm instead of -25mm or even -35mm.  It doesn’t give this ride easy float but it’s a fun board for those that like speed and control.

Another thing to discuss is the weight.  It’s tech described on the site and video. Now many will want to know how does the weight compare to the Burton Vapor or Burton Mystery or many of the other super light boards out there?  Who cares.  It’s very very light and if you want something really light it’s at the top of its class. Let’s face it.  It’s nice to have a lighter board but at a certain point, it really doesn’t matter.

So the Ultimate is a board that can carve just as well as it can straight line at bomber speeds.  It’s a fast springy lively board and the right aggressive rider could have a good time on this.
