Slay Everything... Almost
I've been riding this snowboard for the better part of this winter season, putting about 20 to 30 days on it. It has seen action in Baker-Snoqualmie, the Tetons, and all over the 'Ice Coast'. The verdict? It will handle just about anything you can expect it to. It is definitely not a jib board (but sometimes I can't resist), so try to avoid bonking rocks and steel posts because the tip and the tail are thin, soft, and light. Where it absolutely excels: SPEED, carves/turns, drops, jumps, steeps, powder (decent flotation; I am 155# and ride the 157cm), etc. It's rock solid and returns a smooth, damp ride that just makes you want to go faster, jump further, rip harder. If you love technical terrain, airs, freeriding, etc., you'll probably love this board.
Notes about the board: base loves wax, it's pretty light, mid-wide, mid-stiff.
Aggressive All Mountain Deck
Take a look at your current list of potential boards, does it currently contain the Burton Custom X, Burton T6 or Ride Prophet? If so then the Blacklight should also be on that list.This board is super aggressive, but when you get it dialed in it destroys jumps, the backcountry, chutes, cliff drops and pointing it down steeps. It holds an amazing edge that you can count on, the base is fast in various conditions and the overall flex is stiff (8 out of 10) and is snappy and very responsive. If you don't watch what you're doing, you will end up on your ass as this board doesn't have much in the way of forgiveness. But the type of rider that is into the features above is probably drooling on their keyboard right now and isn't worried about that.
fast, light, and precise
this board is the best board for those of you out there looking for a board that is light and can charge down the mountain... whether your ripping through pow or the gnarliest chop you have ever been in, this board will handle it like a champ... with the fastest base that Nitro makes on it and a directional twin shape this board is like the team on crack.... it is a mid wide so it floats unbelievably well and has bands running tip to tail that are called rock bands... they are a basalt rock mashed into bands to add snap to the board so that when you load it up or land in really deep snow, this board will snap back and get you on top of the snow or in the air.... the sidecut in this board makes it a knife through the snow and this board is a charger for whole mountain...
