I can't expect a board as fast and as well made as ours to show no wear but I was a little surprised that after one day I would see minor damage.

Hey,

Loving the new board, super fast and just loves the powder.

Sucks to hear what happened. Were the chips on the surface area (not the edges?) Any idea what caused them?

My top sheet is fine, but I do have a few chips along the tail and nose from backcountry rocks and a dumb teenager who was bombing down the hill on his snowboard during night skiing who clipped the back of my board. Otherwise, so far so good.

I have heard of older Nideckers having vulnerable topsheets, but nothing on the recent batches over the past couple of years.

Maybe the few here who actually have an Ultralight will chime in with their boards.

What an idiot that hit you, that's why my heads on a swivel even in the lift lines. The chips are on the top sheet, they are just below my right binding. I have no idea how it happened, my guess is during a turn a rock hit it. I certainly didn't drop it, I've been carrying that board around like my first born son. I've read the UL's are fragile, I guess there is a trade off for being so light weight. I can live with that because the board is so bad ass.
Where did you ride powder? Did you change the bindings at all or make any adjustments?

Thanks for the reply,
Mike

Riding in the East Kootenays in BC so Fernie and Kimberley. We've had some major dumps in the past 30 days!

I'm running my bindings in the centered setback stance. Played with a few angled but otherwise nothing out the ordinary.

Lucky you, do you live up there? I hear Feenie kicks ass. I hope the dumps continue. It's on my bucket list: Heliboarding BC with Eagle Pass. But damn its expensive, $2000 US per day.
