QUITE POSSIBLY THE BEST VALUE FREERIDE BOARD ON THE MARKET
A new addition to the Nidecker line this year, the Escape is aimed at riders who are looking for a great performing freeride board but who are on a bit of a tighter budget. Perfect for riders of all ability levels, this genuinely stunning board borrows both design and technology from Nidecker groups more established freeride boards. This technology trickle down allows the Escape to deliver a level of performance that is nothing short of outstanding, especially at its price. Built around a state of the art fully directional freeride shape and utilising advanced construction and materials, the Escape gives you all the tools that you could need. No matter if you're dropping backcountry faces, charging groomers or just messing with friends in the side country, this board really will blow you away.
Rider Style Beginners through to more advanced riders looking for a high performing freeride board that can take on any type of terrain but also a freeride board that won't break the bank.
Shape Overview The Escape utilises an all new state of the art directional freeride shape which is fine-tuned with a combination of Round Square nose and Round Flat tail. The Round Square nose combines a wider profile with a smoother transition to refine the float for a shorter, more compact shape. The Round Flat tail again shortens the board but more importantly creates a more stable back which you can lean on in the final part of the turn. Combine this with the 10mm setback, and you have all the ingredients in place for a stunning freeride board.
Profile To ensure that the Escape delivers stunning performance across the whole mountain, Nidecker utilises their traditional Positive Camber profile. This full-length camber provides extra grip and response while increasing stability and is perfect for riders who are looking for that balance of carving performance and all-terrain charging. For the Escape, Nidecker modifies the camber profile slightly, by adding 8 to 10 cm of flat transition at the contact points, this creates a more fluid edge to edge transfer and gives the board a mellower overall feel.
Construction Internally the Escape utilises a mix of high-quality materials and traditional snowboard manufacturing to deliver it's unique easy going yet responsive and dynamic ride. Heading this up is the high-quality Master core. Combining poplar for durability, beech for pop and power and paulownia for weight saving, it delivers the perfect foundation for the Escapes great performance. This is then matched to Nidecker's exclusive Dual Plus structural layers. This 90° biaxial fibreglass is designed to offer a forgiving ride and predictable torsional flex. Finishing off the Escapes stunning construction is the Ash Veneer top sheet. Not only does this look great but it also adds another level of dampening into the board's structure.
Base Developed exclusively for Nidecker, the N-7000 is an extremely tough, sintered base with added carbon nanoparticles that provide exceptional glide.
