Nidecker isn’t the most well known brand in North America, but they have been building some of the best boards in the world for a long time now. Based in Switzerland, Nidecker has been a leader in snowboard design and construction in Europe. So much so that brands like Jones and YES. partnered with them when striking out on their own. The Megalight isn't for everyone, but that's not meant to scare folks away from it. It was built and designed in the Swiss Alps for a certain of riding and rider. The Megalight is at home riding steep lines, tight trees, deep pow, and fast groomers for the snowboarder who likes to lay it over on their edge and truly carve. If the Megalight seems a little too much then we would suggest checking out the Nidecker Thruster. Staff Review: "When the conditions call for it, you will find me in the steepest trees on the mountain and on those days you will find me on my Megalight. In truth, it has become my go to board no matter what the conditions are, but it is in those steep lines that it truly excels." - Clifford FEATURES • Directional (Setback 30 mm) • Freeride Camrock • 8/10 Flex • N-9000 Base • Light Core • Triax Plus Gass • Absorbnid Topsheet • 3DN Concept • Free-Flex 3.0 • Carving Machine • 2+1 Year Manufacture Warranty TECHNICAL SPECS Freeride Camrock - Freeride CamRock gives you everything you need to handle big backcountry lines. A longer rocker in the nose, camber under the feet and a reduced rocker in the tail makes for a maneuverable, confidence inspiring board with lots of float to really push the limits of freeriding. N-9000 Base - Produced with carbon nanoparticles, the N-9000 has a very dense molecular structure, which makes it the fastest and most durable base material. Light Core - Features three different wood types in a perfect combination of paulownia for lightness, poplar for pop and responsiveness, and hardwood beech stringers along the edges to increase core durability, pop and protection from edge impacts. Triax Plus Glass - The 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. Absorbnid Topsheet - Absorbnid is an innovative top layer designed to absorb unwanted vibrations. This allows for a more responsive, dynamic board that will still give you a smooth and fatigue free ride. 3DN Concept - The 3D N-Concept takes snowboard construction to the next level. A unique core outline between the inserts allows the board to flex differently under each foot, delivering the ultimate feeling of control and a three dimensional riding experience you won't find anywhere else. Free-Flex 3.0 - By 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. Carving Machine - This deck is built on the direct roots of the Nidecker's carving lineage. Lay it out and feel the centrifugal force build. 2+1 Year Manufacture Warranty - Extend your two year Nidecker warranty to three years by registering your board.
