Nidecker Alpha Snowboard Mens 2024
What if your snowboard could launch from the snow like a bird of prey? What if it could slice through deep pow like a dolphin moving through the waves? For Nidecker, the answer lies in Biomimicry: incorporating shapes found in the natural world, and strategies honed over millennia through natural selection. It could mean learning from the structure of a bird’s wing in flight and applying the same principles to optimize lift and float, or analyzing the morphology of a penguin's stomach for a more fluid edge to edge feel. If it sounds simultaneously groundbreaking and obvious - as if the answer was staring us in the face all along - that's because it is. The Nidecker Alpha Snowboard is the playful member of the new Instinct family, blending all mountain freestyle with a loose and surfy feel that allows you to take flight at any moment.
Surfy CamRock – Surfy CamRock delivers that special feeling of surfing on snow sought after by a new generation of freeriders. With a long rocker in the nose for optimal float and regular camber through the midsection and tail, it has all the reactivity you need to ride with lots of setback and a very short fish tail.
Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
NDK Swiss Core – NDK Swiss Core is the heart and soul that makes the new Instinct Series so special. Its name tells you all you need to know. This core is crafted in Switzerland with passion from sustainably harvested, light poplar wood.
Exclusive Nidactive Sandwich – This next level construction steps up the power and response of Nidecker's standard sandwich manufacturing. Adding advanced materials like Carbon and Kevlar® gives the board more pop and improved shock absorption.
Biax Plus – Biax Plus retains the properties of Nidecker's tried and tested 90° biaxial fiberglass weave with more glass to enhance power transfer. It's uncompromising in its response and energy return, and loved and coveted by riders searching for a good blend of stiff & damp wherever they rip.
Pop Carbon – Strategic placement of carbon fiber from the tail to the rear inserts, and from the nose to the front inserts, resulting in a more reactive board, with increased pop and stiffness. It's vibration dampening qualities make it ideal for more aggressive riding in all conditions.
N-7000 – Developed exclusively for Nidecker, the N-7000 is an extremely tough, sintered base with added carbon nanoparticles that provide exceptional glide.
Absorbnid – This 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.
2x4 - 6 Inserts – With 6 rows of inserts every 2 cm, this insert combination allows you to adjust your stance to the optimum position. Nidecker's reference stance is the second narrowest position.
