A perfect name for this lightweight freerider, women can slide effortlessly down the hill on the Glide.

The testers described this performance platform as “springy, responsive, and lively.” Product Manager Tim “Bub” Weisser says the Glide is “all around user-friendly,” in part due to Nitro’s Ultrabeam Core, which is slotted to eliminate some of the overall weight.

Janet noted this difference and says, “The weight and spring of this board will move you. You can make large- or short-radius turns.”Always looking out for the little people, Lisa noted, “This model is a good choice for small, aggressive riders or bigger, intermediate people.”
