This year the Nitro Rook and the new Nitro T1.5 both won the prestigious Transworld Snowboarding Good Wood Awards. Nitro´s boards have been winning the Good Wood awards for over 6 years now. Below are short descriptions about what TWS had to say about them:

Your chariot de shred. The Rook is built with a flat camber profile that’s easy to press, float, pop, and still hold an edge when you have to dig in. Those edges are also 50 percent thicker than the standard, so they can take hits without cracking. New this year is thinner core profiling between the feet for better board feel and flex, and thicker zones outside the feet for ollie and landing power. Another additive for 2013 is a tip-to-tail slab of fiberglass for added pop.
