The Alpha APX is our flagship model in the Biomimicry Series, combining innovative shape with premium materials for fluid, powerful turns across the whole mountain. The APX’s outline is carried over from the regular Alpha, and features a rounded 3D nose and a stepped-in tail inspired by designs found in nature; expect increased lift in deep snow, slush and crud, and seamless transitions from edge to edge.
The Surfy Camrock profile is more playful than traditional full camber but we’ve paired it with a carbon-infused triax layup to add some snap to those cutbacks. An upgraded N-9000 base keeps you flying over flat sections, while the Nidactive APX construction boosts edge grip and provides a stunning wrapped finish to the matte topsheet. Make no mistake: the Alpha APX sits firmly at the top of the all-mountain food chain.
Base + Edges
N-9000 Base - Produced with carbon nanoparticles, the N-9000 has a very dense molecular structure, which makes it our fastest, most durable base material.
Construction + Core
Pop Carbon Plus - Pop Carbon Plus means we use a double amount of Pop Carbon, placed on both sides of the core and running tip to tail, which creates twice the amount of pop and liveliness.
Nidactive Sandwich - This new construction really put our experience and expertise to the test during r&d and production. The precision required to assemble the different material layers is measured in tenths of millimeters. We use a cap construction for the nose & tail, while the riding section features a 2mm sidewall with a machine-rounded core to obtain optimum fluid flow properties and power transfer to the rails.
Triax Plus Fiberglass - The result of extensive testing with our riders and engineers, our 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.
Inserts - 4/2-6 - With 6 rows of inserts every 2 cm, this insert combination allows you to adjust your stance to the optimum position, and works with all bindings on the market. Our reference stance is the second narrowest position possible.
Absorbnid - Absorbnid is an innovative top layer designed to absorb unwanted vibrations. This allows us to develop responsive, dynamic boards that still give you a smooth and fatigue free ride.
Light Core - Our lightest core – featuring three 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.
