Review: Nitro Prime Raw Snowboard · 2024Published on 06/20/2023 · 3 min readThis review is my own honest opinion of the snowboard, which I tested in March 2023. I am not sponsored by Nitro.
The Curated Take
The Nitro Prime Raw, with its directional shape and flat profile with rocker at nose and tail, is ideal for beginners aiming to confidently explore different terrains. The surfy feel supports easy turns and floatation on fresh snow, while its extruded base and Powercore provide durability. While it's not suitable for high speeds, it's a good choice for new riders or seasoned snowboarders seeking a playful, all-around board.
- Easy to press and butter on
- Ideal for progressing and building confidence on the mountain
- Good durability
- Not the most stable board for charging hard and riding fast
- Not ideal for carving with lack of camber on the board
- Not good for icy or hard pack terrain
