Description

The 4th generation of the Megalight redefines once again the high-quality construction techniques and values that have built our Nidecker's reputation for producing cutting edge snowboards. Using the same outline and having undergone the same N-Tech 2.0 upgrade as the Ultralight, the Megalight is just as well adapted for charging hard in steep and deep powder as it is for laying down carves on hard packed slopes. It features our exclusive Absorbnid top layer that absorbs unwanted vibrations to make your riding experience as soft and comfortable as can be; our Light Core built with 3 different woods for optimum lightness, responsiveness and durability; and the N 9000 base, our fastest, most durable base, produced with carbon nanoparticles.

Tech Details

Construction

N-tech 2.0

N-TECH 2.0 is a major evolution of our already futuristic N-TECH construction process. The main feature is a 3D cap that increases the effect of the 3D torsion construction between the feet and when combined with our Freeflex 3.0 technology in the nose and tail also produces state-of-the-art flex and stress distribution patterns that are unique in snowboard manufacturing.

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 + 1

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. We also added an extra position for deep Pow days.

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

Light Core

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.

Base

N-9000

Produced with carbon nanoparticles, the N-9000 has a very dense molecular structure, which makes it our fastest, most durable base material.

Added Fibers

BCK

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.

Exclusive Tech

3DNConcept

Our 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 3-dimensional riding experience you won't find anywhere else.

Exclusive Tech

Freeflex 3.0

By reducing the wood and fiberglass in the nose and tail, but reinforcing them with lighter, stronger materials, our unique Freeflex 3.0 technology allows us to significantly decrease board weight, while simultaneously increasing strength, durability and pop. It also dampens vibrations and provides an extraordinarily light feel when transitioning between turns.
