Nitro is the only company that actually has some kind of biomolecular phsyicist fancy science guy that works for them. Basically it's a high end wax infused sintered base with some fancy terms on it that makes you think it does more than company x's base. Fuck what it says and just ride you won't notice a difference.

can't be right, according to their catalog, nitro only has 4 different bases - hi-def fh, scratch & rip fh, sintered speed formula and sintered speed forumala 2. all their mid and entry boards like the volume, ripper, prime, t1 and teams have hi-def fh and scratch & rip fh bases, while all their high-end stuff like the panteras, misfits, rooks, eeros and backlight have sintered speed formula and sintered speed formula II bases. if the hi-def fh is sintered, that would mean their entire line-up is sintered.

maybe speed scratch and rip are extruded.
and all the rest are sintered.
it doesn't make sense for a 400 + board have a shitty base.
and once i had a morrow rv , so cheap board, and it had sintered base.
so i still dont know. and didnt try the board yet !

I have this board right now. I think it's extruded. Waxed up wierd, didn't seem to suck up the wax like the sintered bases I'm used to. But I think it's also really fast. I smoked my buddy all last weekend with his fresh coat of wax on his never summer (nice sintered base) to the point where he was commenting on it a lot. I had my misgivings when I waxed it, but after riding it I'd say it's good to go.
