This is a great all around board. I had the opportunity to try it out in several different elements (park, powder, ice). It is stiff enough to hold its edge at high speed and the sharp edges manage to hold over a little ice. Being stiffer it took a little getting used to in the park, but after some adjustments it performed satisfactorily. I have to say that it wasn't very good in powder, it's not really designed for that aspect of "all mountain" riding. I'll be watching out for sidewall delaminating. Overall if you want a fast, light, affordable all mountain (minus powder) board with some great artwork and a 2 year warranty, the Nitro Team Series is a safe bet.
