Nidecker Concept 2017-2018 Snowboard Review | The Snowboard Asylum

Heading up Nidecker’s all-new Freecarve line, the state of the art Concept utilises some of the most advanced design and manufacturing processes available, to create a totally stunning board that changes the way we look at piste and powder boards. Aimed squarely at those experienced riders who are looking for the ultimate in on piste performance but who still want a board that will destroy the back country, the Concept delivers a ride that is truly off the scale, making it one of the most exciting boards of the season.

Built around a state-of-the-art directional shape with traditional camber, the Concept pushes the boundaries of snowboard manufacturing to a new level. Combining innovative construction with the most advanced materials, Nidecker have created a snowboard that delivers race board levels of response but without that never relenting aggression that you get at the top level of alpine riding. Heading up its revolutionary shape is the innovative round/square nose profile. This unique design extends the contact points deeper into the nose kick directing the flow of snow under the front of the board creating additional lift in the pow. This allows the designers to get great off piste performance whilst still being able to deliver a low swing weight nose to give the rider the ultimate in control and response. At the tail, the Round/Fish short tail profile allows the rider to really drive the board out of the turn whilst also sinking the tail in deep snow.

Internally the Concept is a tour de force of snowboard innovation. Heading up the advanced N-Tech construction is the Swiss Light Core. This handmade wood core combines poplar, paulownia and beech to deliver the perfect balance of pop, power and weight saving. This is then wrapped with Nidecker’s advanced 35° Tri-Ax plus structural layers. These are formed as a cap at the tip and tail to create torsionally stiffer zones at the contact points then blending into sandwich along the edges for improved energy transfer. Finally, the super-fast Carbon Nano-Particle N9000 base delivers one of the fastest rides you can possibly get.
