The Prime snowboard offers a ride so comfortable and effortless that you will progress past the learning curve like a future pro. The progression-friendly Directional Shape allows riders of all skill levels to drop into the unknown confidently, and the Flat-Out Rocker's catch-free ride allows riders to learn new tricks in the park day after day with less chance of catching your edge. The Prime is built for riders who want to skip through the basics and get after it on a board that will progress with them yearly.

My boyfriend and I got my best friend a Nitro Prime a couple years back when he was just starting out and it was perfect. The flat to rocker profile makes it super easy to turn, press and also very forgiving on icy terrain. The downside of the flat to rocker profile is the lack of energy, so it becomes... Read more

Great Beginner Board

Posted on Dec 27, 2023
Got this for my teenage son. He has been out with me 6-7 times, and this is his first owned deck. He wanted something he could continue to learn on but not grow out of too fast. He has one day on it so far. Matched with rambler bindings and DC phase boots. They all seem to be balance well. It is fairly catch free. Has good pop, and generally enhanced his confidence. The only small gripe (and I mean small) is the top sheet has a softer/matte finish. Snow does stick to it more than glossy finishes. Sprayed it with rain-x for the next trip out.

Nico rocked!
5 /5
Nico helped me tackle the overwhelming and vast realm of purchasing my first ski setup. He was super knowledgeable and took the time to learn about me. The gear he picked out for me really catered towards what I told him I liked to do on the mountain as well as my budget restrictions. All in all great experience and really helped me get over the hump of investing in my own gear!

I finished a season snowboarding in Snoqualmie Pass and Sarah was great at offering insight about what kinds of gear were best for the terrain I'd see at my typical groomed mountains! She was very responsive to all of my questions and it felt like I was asking a friend for advice rather than a sales pitcher. I feel grateful to have matched with a knowledgeable local and will look to get more recommendations from her. It is my first time buying snowboarding gear and Curated had just what I needed - price match included!

Eric was very responsive & knowledgeable. He suggested ski bindings & skis that I think I am really going to enjoy. He listened to me & answered all my questions & made suggestions according to my ski style, ability & needs. I will deff be a returning customer! Eric knows his stuff & is very personable. Ski equipment is always changing, it can be overwhelming, but Eric guided me in the right direction & I feel confident in my purchase thanks to him! Great job! Thank you!

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.
