Inspired by the efficient shapes found in nature, the Alpha sets a new standard in all-mountain fluency.Glide effortlessly through powder, slice clean lines down the trails or thread the needle on your favourite tree-run; it’s all about flow. A 3D spooned nose – based on the profiles of marine mammals – provides maximum float and easy turn initiation, while the subtle pinch at the rear of the sidecut mimics a bird of prey’s tail, helping it to sink in deep snow.

Under the hood, the Alpha features a lively NDK core made from sustainable Swiss poplar, combined with carbon fibre layers for even more pop. Vibrations are kept to a minimum thanks to our Absorbnid™ topsheet. The Alpha’s smooth edge-to-edge transitions and versatile flex makes it the go-to deck for creative mountain surfers like Matieu Crepel.

Tech Details


Premium Sandwich picto
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.


Absorbnid picto

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.


4/2-6 picto

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.


Biax Plus picto
Biax Plus

Biax Plus retains the properties of our tried and tested 90° biaxial fiberglass weave but we use more glass to enhance power transfer. It’s uncompromising in it’s response and energy return, and loved and coveted by riders searching for a good blend of stiff & damp wherever they rip.


NDK Swiss Core picto
NDK Swiss Core

NDK Swiss Core is the heart and soul that makes our new Instinct Series so special. Its name tells you all you need to know. This core is crafted in Switzerland with passion from sustainably harvested, light poplar wood. What’s more, its FSC and PEFC certifications mean we’ve reached the highest possible standards in terms of sustainable forest management and manufacturing along our entire supply chain.


N-7000 picto

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 picto
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.
