Men’s All-Mountain Snowboards Over $450: Nitro Rook

Holding down the Good Wood court year after year the Rook is a twin tip, mid-wide, freestyle machine. Pressed with a predictable flat camber it’s neither too aggressive nor too squirrelly. The two-way weave of fiberglass gives it a soft feel, but the added carbon fiber and beech wood stringers from tip to tail beef up ollie power. With a sculpted core profile that enhances underfoot strength and feel and minimizes weight, it’s made for movin’.

Price: $500

Available Sizes: 152, 154, 156, 158

Tester Comments

“Super fun all-mountain freestyle board. One of the best boards I’ve ridden all week.”

Looking for reviews of the best snowboards for the 2013/2014 season? For the 15th annual TransWorld SNOWboarding Good Wood Snowboard Test we split the test into two and took 16 experienced testers to Woodward Tahoe at Boreal, California for the park test and Sierra-at-Tahoe, California for the all-mountain portion. Our testers rode hundreds of decks to deliver the best boards from the most comprehensive snowboard test in the industry.
