The Escape is inspired by Nidecker’s high performance models, but offers a softer and more comfortable ride. This board is perfect for spending the whole day out on the mountain. It features: a wood veneer top layer made of ash for added responsiveness and absorption; full positive camber between the contact points; Nidecker’s Premium Sandwich construction for plenty of power, responsiveness, pop and shock absorption, the result of using advanced materials like carbon and Kevlar®; their extra strong, responsive and lightweight Master Core, built with the perfect harmony of different wood densities and types for a superior weight to-performance-to power ratio; and their extremely tough, sintered N-7000 base, produced with carbon nanoparticles to provide exceptional glide.
Positive Camber – Positive Camber is the bedrock for performance snowboards, its extra grip and powerful response have made it the default choice for riders looking for optimum carving performance. The secret to Nidecker’s advanced camber is the addition of 8 to 10cm flat transitions at the contact points, delivering the ultimate in precision, edge hold, and stability.
Flex Rating – 7/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Round Square Nose – This new generation of nose shape combines a wider profile with a smoother transition to fine-tune the float for a shorter, more compact shape.
Round Flat Tail – A wide profile for control and smooth transition.
Master Core – The Master Core construction is the result of a long history of experimentation in materials and woodcraft. It’s the perfect harmony of different wood densities and varieties (poplar, beech, spruce, and paulownia), resulting in a superior weight to power ratio and an ultra-strong, extra-responsive lightweight core.
Premium Sandwich – This next-level construction steps up the power and response of the standard sandwich manufacturing. Adding advanced materials like Carbon and Kevlar® gives the board more pop and improved shock absorption.
Triax Plus – The result of extensive testing with riders and engineers, Nidecker’s Triax laminate is oriented at 45° to the board, and contains different glass densities. This provides consistent torsional flex, better pop, and more reactivity on every turn.
Vibrak – Two strips of Kevlar® and carbon reduce the vibrations and chatter
under your feet, resulting in a very comfortable ride and giving you the confidence to go bigger and faster, no matter what the mountain throws at you
N-7000 – Developed exclusively for Nidecker, the N-7000 is an extremely tough, sintered base with added carbon nanoparticles that provide exceptional glide.
Ash Wood Veneer – This ash wood veneer top layer delivers added responsiveness and is the most natural way to find the best balance between absorption and pop.
Painted Wood Veneers
2×4 – 5 Inserts – With 5 rows of inserts every 2 cm, this combination is the industry standard and works with all bindings on the market. The reference stance is the middle position.
