All-Mountain / FS
The Ultimate in All Mountain Performance
Ideal for all snow conditions, all types of terrain, all day long
The Rave is the ultimate all mountain freeride board. It’s up to the task, no matter what you ask it to do: shred backcountry powder, carve up the slopes, slalom through moguls, even bust a few airs when duty calls. The Rave is part of the R8 Sidecut Series for all-round, everyday performance. It also features: our innovative N-Tech construction, combined with our Freeflex 3.0 in the nose to ward off unwanted vibrations; a full positive camber between the contact points; our lightest core with 3 different woods for optimum lightness, pop, responsiveness and durability; and our N9000 base, produced with carbon nanoparticles, it’s the fastest and most durable we make.

The result of years of research and development, N-Tech is a unique Construction method we believe represents the next generation of snowboard manufacturing. It's a combination of Sandwich and Cap Constructions with our Freeflex 2.0 in the nose which is redefining the meaning of high performance snowboarding.
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.
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.
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.
Our lightest core - featuring 3 different wood types. The Light Core is 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.
Produced with carbon nanoparticles, the N-9000 has a very dense molecular structure, which makes it our fastest, most durable base material.
The ultimate combination of fibers to fit all your needs: Basalt, Carbon, Kevlar® (BCK). Placed from the tail to the rear inserts and from the nose to the front inserts, it makes for a lighter board and provides increased pop, torsional stiffness, and reactivity.
In this exclusive technology developed by Nidecker, the nose of the board are specially molded in a very thin composite material layered with a proprietary elastomeric covering. This cancels out vibrations and gives the board a unique, lightweight feel in transitions. Freeflex 2.0 has one of the lowest swing weights in the industry, meaning less chatter and more control.
