Take a Hot Rod Top Fuel (AME Freeride), remove the metal, and you've got a lighter, less demanding ride. The Nitrous still has integrity and edge-grip, but its strength is quickness. Yes, it gets nervous in long arcs at GS speeds, but for the Cruiser who loves short and medium arcs-and even the occasional mogul field-it's aces. And that 78-mm waist certainly won't let you down on powder days. "A comfortable platform with good energy," said Morgan.
