The other King of Pop.
Every snowboard manufacturer is experimenting with different camber profiles. There are a million different cambers, rockers, and hybrids out there, and it's easy to become confused. If you're looking for edge control and pop, don't forget about the original—traditional camber. The Nitro Pantera All-Mountain Snowboard uses traditional camber because it is the undisputed king of edge control and pop.
The Pantera is more than just proven technology wrapped in snappy graphics. It begins with Nitro's lightest wood core made with its highest-grade poplar. The directional shape and progressive sidecut make carving predictable and controlled. The Pantera also uses Nitro's Reflex Profile, which thins between the bindings to add longitudinal flex and make turn initiation easier. For added pop, Nitro added tip-to-tail carbon fiber stringers. For the finishing touch, the Pantera gets the Sintered Speed Formula II Base, which is deeply infused with nanotech wax for ridiculous speed in any snow condition.

The Man's Board
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you like to haul ass and rail turns, there isn't a better board on the market. The Nitro Pantera is a man's board designed for one thing: total mountain domination. This freeride machine has a stiffer flex and won't buckle or loop out under any circumstance. The tapered tail and directional shape allow you to float freely in powder. Diamond bands in the core allow you to get the snap you require to pop those ollies and stomp those cliffs. Whether you like to stick to the groomers or head into the trees, the sintered base will keep you ahead of the pack. I highly recommend the Pantera to anyone that wants to charge the mountain without worrying about outperforming their board.
