The Nikita Expression Snowboard reigns as the go-to all-mountain and freestyle snowboard of choice. Intermediate riders will love that they can ollie higher, and butter better thanks to the Popster core profiling of Aspen FSC certified wood. With camber between the feet you can lock into smooth turns, even when going fast. Along with the mountain-focused directional twin shape, Nikita added elliptic curves throughout to make edge to edge transitions completely effortless, regardless of the snow conditions. Riding hard and absorbing big hits? No biggy, the Royal Rubber Pads soak it all up and mellow out vibrations. Express yourself on the mountain, just like you do off the mountain with the artistically-crafted Nikita Expression Snowboard.
Cross Camber Camber between the feet for better control, pop, and landing stability. Rocker on the tip and tail for effortless float and presses while making turns forgiving and smooth.
Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) A mild flex rating is great for progression at all levels. Forgiving in the park and playful in the powder. Even at high speeds this board will give you a predictable and precise feeling.
Directional Twin A twin shape for all freestyle terrain, with a directional flex for power at high-speed, and a stance that is slightly set back.
Quadratic A blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes, and fluid edge to edge transitions.
Aspen Strong CNC-selected high-density FSC certified wood strips at the inserts and rail zones result in improved impact resistance and a predictable flex all season long.
Popster Core Maximize the natural snap and powerful pop of wood with Popster's shaped core profile. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.

Royal Rubber Pads 4MM Soft Royal Rubber (Royal means extra thick) blocks inserted into the high-pressure zones of the ABS Sidewalls for dampening vibrations and mellowing out the big impacts.

Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
All Mountain Edge Bevel Detuned the tip and tail to a 1-degree holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut, back to a 2-degree bevel between the feet, delivers a solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
