Well since I was just going down the line with Nitro I snagged the Swindle. Figured what the hell check out their pricepoint park board.
Board: Nitro Swindle
Bindings: K2 Sweaters
Angles: 18 negative 15 goofy
Boots: K2 T1 DB size 10
My Weight: 165
Conditions: Blustery, snowing, and cold
Mindset: They just keep getting softer lets see where this one takes me
Preconceived Notions: They just keep getting softer. With this things flex I wonder where I’ll stack it.
Flex: I’d say a medium flex from tip to tail.
Stability: Not overly stable or damp. I could feel the snow but it wasn’t so over powering it made it an unbearable ride.
Ollies/Pop: Decent amount of pop for ollies and just leaping off things.
Butterability: Easily butterable
Cruising: If anything this board rides very similar to the Atomic Hatchet in the sense I could ride it just about anywhere. Edge to edge its fine and doing harder carves it held up fine. Popping off the toes and heels for 180’s was solid enough.
Jibbing: Locks on to presses pretty easily and was playful enough to throw a few little tic tacs on the boxes I was hitting.
Rider in Mind: The kid on a pricepoint or beginer that wants a park board to progress with. East coast shred that would ride it all over.
Personal Thoughts: Actually a fun solid pricepoint board. Just another option to add when people ask for a solid pricepoint board. I’d actually buy this and know its a solid ride for me.
Binding Compatibility: Its a 4 hole pattern to a 4 screwed binding imagine that.
Binding Adjustability: Its easy and solid I’ve gone over this binding numerous times already.
Straps: Do their job.
Highbacks: I love the highback design.
Binding Flex: Funstyle
Ratchets: Work solid.
Rider in Mind: Anyone that wants an all mountain binding.
Personal Thoughts: Rock out with your cock out.
