The Beta APX adds top-of-the-line materials to an organic silhouette to create the ultimate backcountry dart.The shape is perfectly adapted to natural terrain, with a tip and tail profile inspired by the way animals have evolved to match their natural environment.

We’ve shifted volume towards the nose to provide surf-like float and dialled up the response with a triax topsheet which wraps around the edge in a finish we call Nidactive Sandwich. Carbon layers at the nose and tail amplify an already lively core and help minimise chatter at high speeds – which is just as well, since the upgraded N-9000 base is lightning fast. A favourite of Japanese soul shredder Shin Biyajima, this is the perfect board for riders who enjoy spending time out in nature – exploring new lines and discovering subtle new ways to turn, guided by instinct.

Tech Details

Added Fibers

Pop Carbon Plus picto
Pop Carbon Plus

Pop Carbon Plus means we use a double amount of Pop Carbon, placed on both sides of the core and running tip to tail, which creates twice the amount of pop and liveliness.


Nidactive Sandwich picto
Nidactive Sandwich

This new construction really put our experience and expertise to the test during r&d and production. The precision required to assemble the different material layers is measured in tenths of millimeters. We use a cap construction for the nose & tail, while the riding section features a 2mm sidewall with a machine-rounded core to obtain optimum fluid flow properties and power transfer to the rails.


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.


Triax Plus picto
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.


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-9000 picto

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

Exclusive Tech

POP Carbon PLUS picto

Pop Carbon Plus fibres run from the nose and tail to the insert packs. We comes into every ollie or turn pre-loaded with extra power. Plus, he also helps with dampening vibrations in rutted runout and spring slush. Pop music, pop art, pop culture and now Pop Carbon Plus.
