Description

As well as growing the Biomimicry Series to include the Gamma, we’re also introducing the Gamma APX. One ofthe most unique boards we’ve ever created, this freestyle twin takes concepts we’ve learned from nature and mutates them into a shape to inspire creativity all over the mountain.

It’s a true twin with a difference: symmetrical nose to tail but asymmetrical from edge to edge. As turns take more force to initiate on your heel edge, we’ve made this sidecut tighter than the toe edge, so whilst the board may look uneven, it actually balances your ride equally toe-to-heel. Coupled with a positive profile for better carving control and more pop, the Gamma floats in the deep and holds its line on hardpack, both ways.

First developed for the Alpha and Beta, we’ve brought over our 3D-shaped Evolution Spoon Nose, now on a twin shape for the first time. At the nose, it gives a unique rolling sensation whilst transitioning between turns as well as added float in soft snow. At the tail it gives a new, looser connection whilst buttering or jamming out slashes, but the edges re-engage with pin sharp precision as soon as you lean it over.

The APX version comes with a faster, harder wearing N-9000 base and dual carbon stringers on either side of the core for more pop and reactivity, but what really sets it apart is the Nidactive APX edge technology.

This places the core directly over the edge, which not only looks like nothing else, but actually increases the force you can exert from your bindings, making this an agile, adaptive and engaging riding experience.

The Gamma is for freestyle focused riders who want to take skills honed in the park to the rest of the mountain. Think spinning in and out of pillow lines, finding new lines through natural halfpipes and shaping slushy hits in the spring. It’s a unique board,made for unique experiences.

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.

Base

N-9000 picto
N-9000

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

Construction

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.

Fiberglass

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.

Inserts

4/2-6 picto
4/2-6

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.

Top

Absorbnid picto
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.

Woodcore

Light Core picto
Light Core

Our lightest core – featuring three 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.
