Product Details

Rocker Type

Positive CamberPositive Camber is the bedrock for performance snowboards, its extra grip and powerful response have made it the default choice for riders looking for optimum carving performance. The secret to Nidecker's advanced camber is the addition of 8 to 10cm flat transitions at the contact points, delivering the ultimate in precision, edge hold, and stability

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Round Inversed TailThis innovative shape creates an extra responsive board and allows Nidecker to reduce the overall length. Perfect for riders who want the ultimate in carving performance.

Round Square NoseThis new generation of nose shape combines a wider profile with a smoother transition to fine-tune the float for a shorter, more compact shape.

R8 SeriesThis medium 8+ meter radius is stable and versatile enough for everyday riding.

Core

Master CoreThe Master Core construction is the result of a long history of experimentation in materials and woodcraft. It's the perfect harmony of different wood densities and varieties (poplar, beech, spruce, and paulownia), resulting in a superior weight-to-power ratio and an ultra-strong, extra-responsive lightweight core.

Laminates

Premium SandwichThis next level construction steps up the power and response of the standard sandwich manufacturing. Adding advanced materials like Carbon and Kevlar® gives the board more pop and improved shock absorption.

Base

N-7000Developed exclusively for Nidecker, the N-7000 is an extremely tough, sintered base with added carbon nanoparticles that provide exceptional glide.

Topsheet

AbsorbnidThis innovative top layer has been developed to absorb unwanted vibrations allowing for responsive and dynamic boards that still give you a smooth and comfortable ride.
