With the re-designed Nitro Rook Mid Wide Snowboard, you will be throwing down bigger and badder tricks all season long.

You'll be crushing pow, hitting jibs and nailing huge kickers. So get the Nitro Rook Mid Wide Board and show off your skills all season long.
Rocker Type
Zero Camber - Combining the best of regular and negative camber, Zero camber boards are easy to maneuver while adding more snap and ollie pop than a pure negative camber design. The result is a board with maximum versatility in more varied riding terrain.
Flex
Park Flex - Specifically tuned for park riding, this flex pattern is forgiving yet responsive, allowing you to take your riding to the next level.
Shape
Profile Tip - Tapered to disperse energy and reduce swing weight
True twin tip
Sidecut
Dual Degressive Sidecut - Makes landings and takeoffs effortless without sacrificing powerful turns
Core
Powercore II - The Powercore II is a tip-to-tail poplar wood core with additional beech wood stringers for unrivaled strength, smooth response and insane snap.
Whiplash Core Profile - Reduces thickness between the inserts with added meet outside your feet for max ollie power
Laminates
Ballistic Impact Panel - Kevlar© is used in bulletproof vests and body armor to protect your core. Nitro uses it in strategic places around the binding-to-board interface to protect the construction from impacts during hard landings. It is many times stronger and lighter than common titanal reinforcements.
New Diamond Band Laminate - Well-balanced layers of Carbon Fiber on the bottom combined with fiberglass on the top of the board establish a new level in performance and gives more snap and liveliness for a smooth, powerful and effortless ride.
Bi-Light Laminate - Nitro's rider-trusted Bi-Light Laminates are engineered for unrivaled strength, powerful style and refined board feel.
Base
Sintered Speed Formula Base - Fast, strong and low maintenance - the high molecular compound and hyperglide wax additives push the pros to go bigger than ever.
Edges
Railkiller Edge - This is your secret weapon on rails. With its unique edge profile and impact resistance of more that 200% compared to a standard edge, this proprietary construction can take on any rail challenge. Take a file or ride them hard and wear them down, this chunk of steel has enough meat for years of railing.
Binding Compatibility
2x4 Insert panel gives you more mounting options

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Flat
    Flat
    A flat profile is just as you’d expect – flat from near the tip of the board to near the tail. This shape splits the difference between camber and rocker, with more forgiving turnability than a fully cambered board and more precise edging capability than a fully rockered one
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
