Nidecker poured decades of experience shaping performance snowboards into this new all-mountain charger. Introducing the Thruster. Combining elements of their previous best-selling models, the Platinum and Rave, with the latest in 3D design, the Thruster is made for aggressive high speed carving. It’s built on the lightest core in the Nidecker line, with a powerful camber profile and a super dense N-9000 sintered base that minimises drag. Trust us when we say this thing is blazingly fast. SideKick tips raise the wide points off the snow, making it smoother to engage the edges and helping the nose plow through deep snow and crud. Added carbon and an Absorbnid topsheet deliver a stable, chatter-free ride even when your eyes are watering. The name of the game here is control. It’s a missile, sure, but it’s laser-guided.
