FREERIDE RECREATION OF NIDECKERS LEGENDARY BABS CHARLET PRO MODEL The Babs has got to be the most recognisable model in Nidecker’s new Classic Line. Taking its graphic inspiration from legendary 90’s pro -rider Babs Charlet’s pro model, this stunning freeride board is easily one of the coolest snowboards of the year. Aimed at experienced riders who are looking for a compact high performance freeride board, it’s combination of advanced design and high-end construction deliver a genuinely stunning board that not only looks great but rides great. Built around a fully directional shape, the Babs features Nideckers advanced nose and tail profile; these create a shorter overall length without compromising float and edge hold. This means that you keep all the freeride response and control, but you also get a more agile board. Match that with the positive Camber profile and carbon/Kevlar loaded construction and you get a stunning snowboard that loves to be ridden hard, but one which you can still mess around on when you just want to have a playful day with your mates.
Rider Style + Ability
Advanced riders looking for a high performing freeride board that can take on any type of terrain but which can still be a bit playful when you need it to be.
Shape + Flex
The Babs 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.
Construction + Core
To ensure that the Babs 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 Babs, 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 more predictable overall feel.
