The Nitro team’s MVP.
- Powercore provides strength and balanced board feel and flex
- Profile Tip is tapered to disperse energy, improve float and reduce swing weight
- Hi-Def FH Base is hard, fast, and tough

This is not park!
I really like this board! A really fun all-mountain deck.

The description says reverse camber under the bindings, but is that correct? Or is it supposed to be camber under the bindings and reverse toward the ends?
HI Cherry Cola, the gullwing camber has positive camber underneath the feet. The rocker camber is positioned in between the bindings. By having the rocker between the bindings it relieves pressure out at the contact points of the nose and tail. Having a little bit of camber underneath the bindings helps out if you ever get off center with your balance. This little bit of camber under the bindings also keeps the nose and tail from slipping out from underneath you, when your giving it in a turn or landings. Hope this helps.. T

If you are into Rocker type camber this board will perform very well. Its nose and tail are pretty drawn out, so it has good float in powder. The gullwing camber makes it easy to start off in powder or packed powder conditions. The board is also stiff enough to handle speeds and landings without washing out. It also has a half inch set back from the nose. Very fun all around board

I'm a 10.5 boot. Do I need the wide version? I'm riding a board now with around a 25 cm waist width without problems. It looks like the regular version might work unless the Nitro team is known to be a narrow board.
No, you will not need the wide version. WW on the 157 is 25.0.
you are fine right now, but if your boots get much bigger you may need to look into a wide
Medium - Stiff All Mountain
I was excited to give this a try, to due to the gullwing camber. One of my current decks is the Sub Zero, which I like a lot. I was hoping this would be a slightly stiffer sub zero. While this was stiffer (around a 6 out of 10, which 10 being stiff as steel), it was not twin shaped. This board is listed correctly as a directional twin. In this case, it means the nose and tail have the same flex, but the nose is around 1-2 inches bigger than the tail. The directionality of it, bummed me out.
If you are looking for all mountain, this kills it. If you are looking for a stiffer sub zero, look into the future.
great in the pow, and out of it
I had the opportunity to ride this board at Brighton, Solitude and the Canyons, all on sick pow days (thanks bc.com for letting me out this week) This board handled it all, from drops in Mary chutes to first lines on the east side of 9990'. Really fun and responsive board with tons of float in the powder, but still retaining the pop (due to the camber of the gullwing design) that i was lacking on other reverse camber boards like the K2 turbo dream. Overall, great all around board that handles the deep stuff without lacking in other areas.
I love this board. Not only is it one of the most visually pleasing boards I've ever seen, its well built and functional. the board is pretty stiff, but flexible enough for jumps. ...The camber on this baby rocks too.

Gullwing rides awesome!!!
This board does it all. The reverse camber in between the feet and on the tip and tail make this board forgiving and fun. Adding camber under the feet gives this board lots of pop and ollie power. I had a few awesome days in the park so far and a killer day with 20+ inches of powder at The Canyons on December 13.
