The Blade offers a radically efficient silhouette for straight-up carving performance.By trimming back the nose and tail, we’ve been able to pack maximum running length into a shorter, lighter snowboard that’s frighteningly easy to throw into turns. A narrow waist width, aggressive sidecut and powerful classic camber ensure toe-to-heel transitions are beyond swift, with unreal edge hold.
Push the speed limit on hardpack or ice and the Blade’s Absorbnid™ topsheet layer will eliminate unwanted vibration so you can focus on cutting clean lines. With a tip-to-tail Master Core and premium construction throughout, you can expect instant energy transmission every time you shift your weight. Get low and hold on for the ride.
CONSTRUCTION: PREMIUM SANDWICH This next level construction steps up the power and response of our standard sandwich manufacturing. Adding advanced materials like Carbon and Kevlar® gives the board more pop and improved shock absorption.
TOP: ABSORBNID Absorbnid is an innovative top layer designed to absorb unwanted vibrations. This allows us to develop responsive, dynamic boards that still give you a smooth and fatigue free ride.
INSERTS: 4/2-6 With 6 rows of inserts every 2 cm, this insert combination allows you to adjust your stance to the optimum position, and works with all bindings on the market. Our reference stance is the second narrowest position possible.
FIBERGLASS: TRIAX PLUS The result of extensive testing with our riders and engineers, our Triax laminate is oriented at 45° to the board, and contains different glass densities. This provides consistent torsional flex, better pop, and more reactivity on every turn.
WOODCORE: MASTER CORE The Master Core construction is a product of our 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-performance-to-power ratio, and an ultra-strong, extra-responsive, lightweight core.
BASE: N-7000 Developed exclusively for Nidecker, the N-7000 is an extremely tough, sintruded base with added carbon nanoparticles that provide exceptional glide.
ADDED FIBERS: 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. Its vibration dampening qualities make it ideal for more aggressive riding in all conditions.
