Nidecker Ultralight
 
Ive been in a board buying mood, and I want to add a couple. Has anyone tried this board, or know anything about it?

Looks and reviews great.

a very generous friend let me ride his for about an hour. It's fast, stable, quick edge to edge and carves well. After the ride, I had to get one for myself and ended up with a Megalight which is very similar but a tad less expensive. Megalight floats well in pow - didn't to try the Ultralight in anything deep but I imagine it should be similar due to similar shape and camrock profile

how does it compare on ice to lib's and NS's?

havent ridden either in ice or anything too hardpacked so am unable to comment. works well on groomed snow though.

Anywhere in the states you can buy these boards online? Have looked around but only found a couple of euro websites

don't be fooled by, "turns ice into powder". it does not do that. i will be switching up my c2btx probably next season. its not that great on ice like they say it is. i've ridden lib for two seasons now.

I just need to find the right pair of bindings now...

I ride an older model Nidecker Legacy, its a freeride cambered directional twin. Pretty light, fairly stiff (7/10) and charges pretty hard. The topsheet on mine is seethrough and you can see the core which pretty cool imo. I wouldnt be suprised if people said its not the dampest board, but i don't really have anything to compare it to at this point. Overall i am satisfied with my board, and i think anyone else would feel that way about a nidecker board.

The newer models are getting amazing reviews, hard to find thou..at least in canada.

Interesting that it seems Nidecker makes YES and Jones snowboards.

You are correct, Nidecker did make the Jones boards, notice the tense? They have since switched manufatures. Wonder why? Pick up a 2013 and 2012 and compare. End of story.


That being said, I love some of the new stuff coming out of Yes.
