Jibbing and jumping Betties, this board is for you.
The twin-shaped Nitro Women's Runaway Snowboard is your board of choice for the park. The Runaway features a dual degressive sidecut that makes takeoffs and landings effortless, yet you won't sacrifice powerful turning. Tapered tips on this buttery board reduce swing weight for tight turns and easier spins, and fiberglass laminate on the wood core makes this board strong and stable and enhances board feel. The easy-to-maintain FH base gives you speed for your jumps.

will this board work for a lower level...
will this board work for a lower level intermediate rider...aka will the soft flex of this board make for easier handling and response for someone who is just crusing groomers, learning how to link turns etc.?
Sure will. The soft flex makes turns easier than stiff boards, and are much easier to control. Also, it will be slower than a stiff board, something that many new boarders will appreciate.
This board is awesome. I have previously had the Nitro Nyx and there were times I thought it was just too still. This is basically a softer version of the Nyx. Nitro heard women saying the Nyx was stiff and made us this board. This board is really fun, poppy and responsive. Does great booking down the mt or in the park. I rode this board at the very end of last season and did not end up on any rails, but jumped with it and it was poppy off the lips. Fun on side hips and goofing around on the fun jumps and whoops on the side of groomed runs. I took this out kiteboarding one day also and it was fun to kiteboard with. comfortable to lean back into the heal edge and cruise. This is a great board and it will not disappoint.
Well, I would have to say that since Cheryl Maas based her pro model deck off of this board she likes the ride of this board....this board is super fun....it comes with a two year warranty and a twin shape with a dual degressive sidecut....that means that this board will ride any rails that you want it to and still hit those jumps and surprise pow days that come your way.....this board will slay it all......its for that girl that leads all the guys around all day and shows THEM how much speed that jump needs....
The runaway is a new board this year in Nitro line. it's a very good board for chicks who like freestyle and who like to do a big jump. It's a soft board twin tip with an amazing design.
This board has great flex and pop. Super fun in the pipe and little hits all over the mountain. Also allows me to haul done the hill. I don't do rail much anymore but I am sure this board would slay them after detuning the edges. In sum this board handles it all and makes it effortless.
