From winning awards to winning lines, the powerful Nitro Rook Snowboard is ready for another year of awesomeness. Featuring the versatile Zero Camber, the Rook gives you the best of camber and reverse camber by remaining stable and forgiving. Built like a castle, the Rook is equipped with Ballistic Impact Panels that protect the board's core as well as Railkiller edges that are beefed up and able to withstand repeated beatings. The Rook is also designed with the Whiplash profile reducing thickness between the inserts and increasing thickness towards the outside of your feet, giving you unmatched board feel and maximum ollie pop. Durable, smooth, and responsive, the Rook is your all-terrain shred stick.
Zero: The Everybody Camber If reverse camber is too loose and standard camber is too stiff, then Zero camber is the solution you have been looking for. This highly versatile profile allows you to enjoy the benefits of both camber and reverse camber, without sacrificing response, for playfulness and vice-versa. Zero camber is quickly becoming the profile of choice for park and urban riders worldwide.

Comments about Nitro Rook Snowboard 2014:
I like to do an all-mountain freestyle sort of run. Hit everything i can in the park and in the trees. Was used to a traditional camber board so this one took about 4-5 runs to be comfortable with how to turn and how to stand, dont need as much foward lean as you normally would to stand on it. I took it to Mammoth for two days after the 5' of snow they got at the end of February. It rides good in powder but you gotta work for it. Groomers are easy and you can zoom. It will bail you out of some backseat landings being zero camber. Watch out for anything, it dings up really easy. Two days and i need to get the base repaired.
