Rave The Ultimate in All Mountain Performance

"Ideal for all snow conditions, all types of terrain, all day long"
A new Nidecker creation, the Rave is the ultimate all mountain freeride board. It’s up to the task, no matter what you ask it to do: shred backcountry powder, carve up the slopes, slalom through moguls, even bust a few airs when duty calls. The Rave is part of the R8 Sidecut Series for all-round, everyday performance. It also features: our innovative N-Tech construction, combined with our Freeflex 3.0 in the nose to ward off unwanted vibrations; positive camber between the bindings, with the rocker evenly distributed in the nose and tail; our lightest core with 3 different woods for optimum lightness, pop, responsiveness and durability; and our N9000 base, produced with carbon nanoparticles, it’s the fastest and most durable we make.

Specifications

Construction

N-Tech

The result of years of research and development, N-Tech is a unique construction method we believe represents the future of snowboard manufacturing. It’s a combination of Sandwich and Cap constructions with our Freeflex 2.0 in the nose and the tail, and a special 3D torsion construction between the feet that delivers a truly 3-dimensional riding experience, which is redefining the meaning of high performance snowboarding.

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 Inserts

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.

Fibers Glass

Triax Plus

The result of extensive testing with our riders and engineers, our Triax laminate is oriented at 35° 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.

Exclusive Features

Freeflex 3.0

In this exclusive technology developed by Nidecker, the nose and tail of the board are specially molded in a very thin composite material layered with a proprietary elastomeric covering. This cancels out vibrations and gives the board a unique, lightweight feel in transitions. Freeflex 2.0 has one of the lowest swing weights in the industry, meaning less chatter and more control.
