Ultralight The Summit of Snowboard Technology

"Ideal for steep and deep freeriding"
Snowboards don’t get more high-tech than this. Nidecker has developed the Ultralight in collaboration with The Swiss Polytechnic School. The result is a full carbon, big mountain, freeride machine. Designed for leaning into big powder turns, the Ultralight is stiff and responsive enough for carving up the slopes, and delivers a truly 3-dimensional riding experience on all types of terrain. It features our unique N-Tech construction, which combines our vibration absorbing Freeflex 2.0 technology with a special 3D torsion construction between the feet; our lightest core built with 3 different woods for optimum lightness, responsiveness and durability; and our N 9000 base produced with carbon nanoparticles for maximum speed and durability.

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.



Carbonid is a full carbon top layer developed especially for our dynamic, top of the range Ultralight and Spectre Carbon models. Mixed with the multi-strand glass layers, this explosive combination delivers the ultimate in power and reactivity.

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.


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.



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

Exclusive Features

3DN Concept

Our 3D N-Concept takes snowboard construction to the next level. A unique core outline between the inserts allows the board to flex differently under each foot, delivering the ultimate feeling of control and a 3-dimensional riding experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Freeflex 2.0

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.
