Park flex, twin shape, and Railkiller edges for terrain park annihilation.
The Nitro team wanted the same versatile twin shape and freestyle-tuned construction as the best-selling T1, in a board with the jaw-dropping pop and precise control of traditional camber. The T1.5 Snowboard ups the pop factor with a camber profile and extra-snappy fiberglass wrap, for riders who ride fast and boost big—and don't want to worry about washing out at warp speed.
The T1.5 is more than just proven traditional camber technology wrapped in snappy graphics. It begins with Nitro's lightest wood core made with its highest-grade poplar. The Nitro PowerCore II core is made with lightweight poplar and full-length beech wood stringers for ridiculous pop. The Whiplash Profile is thin between the bindings and thicker toward the tip and tail for easy turn initiation with no sacrifice in response. The twin shape and radial sidecut make carving predictable and controlled whether you're riding regular or switch. The T1.5 also uses Nitro's Park flex, which is forgiving yet responsive for all aspects of terrain park domination. Carving duties are handled by Nitro's Railkiller edges, which have 200% more impact strength than standard edges. For the finishing touch, the T1.5 gets the Speed Formula HD Base. The new Formula HD base compound combines high abrasion-resistance, higher wax absorption, and ridiculous on-snow speeds with ultra-clear transparency to show off your base graphics.

Hi, I've been riding reverse camber for...
Hi, I've been riding reverse camber for awhile now but thinking of trying back the camber for the snap and pop everyone been talking about. I'm 5'9" 160lbs. I need something for casual carving and playing around mountain and small-medium park features. should I go 153 or 156?
I would go for the 156. The 153 would be a ad bit to short for you, and suited for a park-only rider.
T1 or T1.5?? Same question as below but...
T1 or T1.5?? Same question as below but i was wondering which one to get because i really like how flexy and soft the t1 is but don't know if the t1.5 would be to stiff. I like jumps but at the same time a love having that softer playful feel to just butter and press around on jibs and such all over. would the T1.5 still be soft enough or is it more on the stiff side?
T1 or T1.5, that is the question. I ride...
T1 or T1.5, that is the question. I ride rails an jumps equally as much. The biggest jumps at my small resort may get up to 50 ft.
I just picked up the 1.5 and it is easily the most responsive piece of wood that I have taken to the mountain.
It's responsive, has a flexible core, and can really take whatever you throw at it. My sloppy 270 has turned into a pretty crisp 360.
I paired it with the new ride KX's and the response is out of control. I strongly recommend this board to anybody looking to step up their freestyle/park game. It will change you, but for the better : P
Probably the best park board around
T1.5...more like Wow give me a high five

My favorite thing about the T1.5 is the core profile. Nitro thins out the core between the bindings so you can press the board but still snap that sumuvabitch into a major ollie. A twin cambered snowboard is hard to come by these days for some reason. If you are a traditionalist and like a snowboard that still has that pop and liveliness while still killing it in the park, this is for you.

Nothing compares to camber. If you are looking for snap, power, and response from your park board, the T1.5 is exactly what you have been searching for. This true twin freestyle destroyer will help you stomp those huge jumps without having to worry about looping out. The Whiplash core profile helps keep the board playful for those butters and presses while the tri-lite laminates enable the T1.5 to remain stable at high speeds. Rail killer edges are twice as thick and twice as strong as a standard edge and round out the tech package of this amazing board. If you are looking for a fast and responsive freestyle machine, check out the T1.5.
The Ultimate Park Snowboard.
If you like a little more response and support from a good classic cambered snowboard, but you still want to be able to jib around and press through any rail - then the 2014 Nitro T1.5 is the board for you. Nitro team riders, Bryan Fox, Austin Smith, Nils Arvidsson, Torgier Bergrem, swear by the T1.5.
