Snowboard Iskola

Board: Nitro Quiver Cannon

Size: 173

Camber Option: Cam-Out Camber. It’s camrocker so rocker in the tips and camber underfoot.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: Overcast skies, cooler temps, snow falling at times, ice, chunder, frozen corduroy, heavy pow in places, and just general mid season conditions right before a storm.

Flex: So the big thing to talk about is how this board is softer than most people think. It’s got a ton of play in the nose then gets slightly stiffer underfoot, and then at the tail due to the swallow cut it gets soft again. The torsional flex is highly abundant and you can twist this board however you want.

Stability: Throw the idea of stability out the window, this board is lively. Keep those knees bent because it gets bucked around in uneven terrain. At high speeds that nose is slapping the ground harder than a beavers tail on a dam during mating season.

Ollies/Pop: The camber section is where you get the load for this thing to pop. It’s easy to engage and when you do it will get you in the air but it doesn’t look good. That’s mainly due in part to that flappy ass nose it has but that’s whatever. Want to send a roller go for it, it has you.

Butterability: Hope you know how to maneuver something this big, because if you don’t you better learn. The tips are easy to bend and flex to your will. Speed and steep terrain is seriously your friend with this.

Carving: The edge to edge transition is quick and smooth. This is a board that for its length rides a lot shorter. You can feel the power from the camber underfoot but when you push into the tail you lose some of that due to the cutout of the swallowtail. It really does like it when you engage from inside the back foot and just push your weight into the board. Overall this thing does rip a nice carve but you need some space because of its size which is to be expected.

Rider in Mind: The novelty board owning quiver king.

Personal Thoughts: This board is always such a novelty to ride. It’s not for everyone, even if I believe everyone should ride a long board at some point in their life. This board is fun for doing showboat carves but if you push it too hard the tail will buckle. In pow it floats exactly how you would expect for something this massive. The big thing is how flexible this deck is.
