It’s never easy being the guinea pig and now that Heat 1 of Battle of the Brands is over and out, the Nitro Snowboards crew has handily handled the Giro jobbers and jumpers. Looks like the fans were fanatic about Sam Taxwood, Nils Arvidsson, Austin Smith and company and they will advance to the next round to face either Burton or Never Summer, and that battle will go live on June 24th. For now, Nitro can rest assured knowing that they’re one step closer to the BOTB title. Congrats to both Nitro and Giro for putting out exceptional edits.
