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.

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

Carbonid

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.

Inserts

4/2-6 + 1

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

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.
