This board is part of the 2017 Gateway series. The change is not just graphics but the construction, the flex, the shape which is designed for more stability in higher speeds and for ease on slide initiation.
Someone at Rayne has been playing with the bandsaw, because the new Nemesis is all chopped up...and it is brilliant.
The obvious change is the drop thru trucks. This was always the big difference between teh Demonseed and Nemesis. So if you have always wanted a smaller demonseed, you are in luck.
The other change is it is a bit more skinny at 9.75. It is the same length.
Why buy ths board? It is doubled dropped, so it has drop thru trucks and a dropped platform. This style board was the go to speedboard, perfect for downhill. If you are after some old school downhill action, this is a good choice. Super stable, super easily to bomb a hill on.
These days, the Nemesis is a great commuter or push board. If you want to push a long way, get fot on a bike track, just have a long commute, then the Nemesis is your machine. The lowere platform will make pushing easier (less knee bending). Maybe even get skogging (youtueb that one).
