Carves Like a Swiss Knife
Ideal for holding an edge through the hardest turns
The Spectre shares the same shape and design theory as the Spectre Carbon, mixing our demanding Alpine performance standards with all mountain versatility. To be ridden with plenty of positive angle on the front and back bindings, with both soft and hard boots, this board is built for riders who want to lay down serious carves on slope, and do the same in the backcountry when they feel the need. It features: our N-Tech construction, an innovative combination of cap and sandwich constructions; our unique Absorbnid top layer that absorbs unwanted vibrations; our advanced camber, with 8 to 10cm of flat transitions at the contact points behind the nose and tail, delivering the ultimate in precision, edge hold and stability; and the N 9000, our fastest, most durable base, produced with carbon nanoparticles.

Inverted Round Tail / Sidecut: 7 Radius Series / SetBack: 40mm / Round Square Nose
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.
