all of you out there looking for a reverse camber type board that still has enough snap to not leave you feeling like you are riding a noodle at the middle of the season check this one out... this board has what Nitro calls a gullwing shape... this means that in between your feet its reverse camber and from inside your feet out to the ends of the board is normal camber... this gives camber where its needed for snap, stability, and durability and reverse camber in between to give a lot more and act a lot more playful... it also has a drifter base.. this means that the base is bevelled up near the edges from foot to foot so that when you are on a rail and flatbased, the edges dont touch... no more broken faces from rails... the combat core is a super durable core that allows this board a lot of flex without sacrificing durability.. this board will blow you away...
HEY I want to know hows the flex ??? compare to a rome artifac 1985 PLEASE HELP ME

i would say the artifact is softer by just a little but the last arifact i rode was the the 2008-09 modle and back then the artifact was much softer then

yo well i have the artifact and my friend has the sub zero and there well pretty damn similar but i would say the sub zero is a tad softer but that may just be as my mates is a smaller size then my artifact but yeh he rates the shit outta his sub zero id say get one im thinking about it

I have the sub pop, which is the same board but a different name. I am 5'6" and have it in 148. It was a little hard to get used to at first, with the reverse camber and how flexible it is, but once past that, it is awesome. Great pop, great flex, great in the park, off jumps, on boxes, on rails, in powder. I have a 52 Rome that I was planning to use as a powder board, but the sub pop does so good in the powder I have been using it all season for all conditions. Most fun I have ever had on a snowboard. Invest!

It wouldn't be the best choice, but it also depends on your weight and height. Any snowboard will work to some degree in powder, it really just depends which one fits your style of riding. The Sub Zero is really soft. It is designed more for rail riding and presses

They say not to but this season I rocked this board in powder all day and it held up just fine. Plus the camber helps keep you aloft in that super deep powder.

love this board. handles well down packed powder runs, and holds its own in the pow. its awesome edge to edge, and the rocker feels amazing cruising down a hill. it does okay in the tree trails, but really shines in the park. decent pop, great flex, wonderful on jibs of course. super fun to butter around on. buy it.
i have a size 11 foot. If i got the 155 (the waist width is 24.8 cm) would i be okay? do you think it would be wide enough for me?

My board is about 26.5cm at waist and I've got next to zero to overhang. My stance goes 0 degrees front, 0 degrees back.
This one is only about 2/3 of an inch narrower, you shouldn't have any problems with width here, especially if you ride a more conventional stance.

Can somebody tell me which board would be the best choice for a jib rocker/reverse camber board thats fairly easy to press but doesnt let down on jumps. Im looking at the k2 parkstar, the gnu carbon credit and the sub zero
October 2, 2009
gnu carbon credits what i ride, and im super impressed with it. it presses like a champ, and has amazing edge hold. its stable at speeds so you can clear those big jumps, and stomps landings easy. the only downside is its pop, cus it barelly has any, and landing in pow is always gunna be squirrly with a rocker board

I was skeptical at first because of how incredibly soft it was, but it was very stable at high speeds. This board is made for the jib park, so jumps up to 30 ft. or so it does great on. The pop is so quick and effortless and HUGE. Slow sign ollies for days.
It also feels like I unlocked the cheat code for perfect presses...because it basically does it for you. So fun. So stoked on it. So glad I bought it. Highly recommended.

i absolutely love the camber story. gullwing is where its at. reverse camber between the feet for that skatey surfy catch free feel. camber under foot to give you more pop with ollies and spring out of the turns. the core is soaked in resin to make it extra strong while staying soft and buttery.
bottom line- super fun board for anyone that wants to play.

Absolutely love this board! Has a great flex and very forgiving, especially when your about to catch an edge. When it comes to powder with this board, it pretty much does all the work for you. I've ridden this board 30+ times this year and have to say am a little disappointed on how durable it is. But overall, great board, especially for the money.

I've been doing this a lot in my reviews this year, but I know that many people are finding the comparison to other decks helpful so I'm going to continue with it.
Lib Skate Banana, Burton Hero, Ride Crush, Never Summer Evo... Are these boards that you are considering for the 2010 season? The Sub Zero is another board that you should add to your list if you're thinking about the boards above.
Last year Nitro's big Early Release board with the Sub Pop, the Sub Zero is the same exact deck just with a new name and graphic. Nitro uses their Gulwing Rocker tech which is similar to that of Never Summer with a slight difference.
The board rockers in the middle to the binding inserts, but the middle of the board is thinned out pretty aggressively making it probably the softest boards I have ever been on. But I tried as hard as I could and couldn't snap the board between the inserts.
When you get to the binding inserts the board has a normal camber so that you still have an effective edge that you can carve on and doesn't get washy when you're carving. Nitro has also brought back their dished base from the old T0 board circa 1999. Adding a slight dish to the base around the deck, combined with rocker virtually eliminates hangup that put you on your ass when sliding rails and boxes.
If you're more of an all around park rider I would suggest checking out the T1 and if you're a jibber but not into the Rocker fad, make sure to take a glance at the Nitro Swindle.
