Product Info

More fun than a sweaty warehouse full of DJs, the Nidecker Rave Snowboard is the ultimate tool for aggressively dancing your way down the mountain. The Rave is made to go fast and shred it all. Take this freeride monster to the backside and enjoy fresh pow, slice up the corduroy and whoosh by the pizza-french fries crowd, then pop an ollie for good measure. Innovative N-Tech with FreeFlex 3.0 combines with a light, powerful core, a full camber profile, and carbon-infused N9000 base for superior responsiveness and a ride that can't be compared to others.

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 Rating8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Diamond NoseThis is a newly developed shape with a longer transition that allows for a more compact nose with increased float.

Diamond TailThis evolution of the all-round tail is compact with a longer transition for increased lift, allowing you to ride switch without compromising the board's responsiveness.

Core

Light CoreNidecker's lightest core - featuring 3 different wood cores. The Light Core is a perfect combination of Paulownia for lightness, Poplar for pop and response and hardwood beech stringers along the edges to increase core durability, pop and protection from edge impacts.

N-Tech ConstructionThe result of years of research and development, N-Tech is a unique construction method that represents the future of snowboard manufacturing. It's a combination of Sandwich and Cap constructions, featuring Freeflex in the nose and tail, and a special 3D torsion construction between the feet that delivers a truly 3-dimensional riding experience that is redefining high performance snowboarding.

Laminates

Triax PlusThe result of extensive testing with the Nidecker team and engineers, the Triax laminate is oriented at 35 degrees to the board and contains multiple glass densities, providing consistent torsional flex, better pop, and responsiveness on every turn.

Freeflex 3.0By reducing the wood and fiberglass in the nose and tail, but reinforcing them with lighter, stronger materials, the unique Freeflex 3.0 technology allows a significantly decreased board weight, while simultaneously increasing strength, durability, and pop. It also dampens vibrations and provides an extraordinarily light feel when transitioning between turns.

Base

N-9000Produced with carbon nanoparticles, the N-9000 has a very dense molecular structure, which makes it Nidecker's fastest, most durable base material.

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.
