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.
Sizes: 152, 154, 156, 158
Tester Feedback: “Super fun all-around board. I like the flat camber, it’s the best of camber and reverse camber; stable yet forgiving.”

New to Nitro’s line, the T1.5 builds on the success of its predecessor, the six-time Good Wood winning T1. Featuring classic standarrd camber, this deck will keep you planted if you land a little backseat. The core profile is thinned between the inserts and beefed up underneath them, riding with a forgiving torsional flex without compromising tip-to-tail stability.
