When Nidecker created the brief for the new Rave its objectives were pretty simple, they wanted to make the best all terrain snowboard on the market. Taking their influences from the new Carving and SnowSurf collections, the designers turned traditional snowboard construction techniques on their head and in doing so have created a revolutionary snowboard that changes the game for all terrain snowboarding. A triumph of design and engineering, the stunning new Rave carves like an alpine board, drops powder lines like a freeride board all whilst retaining that versatility that makes all terrain snowboards the No1 choice for most snowboarders.

Key to the Rave's performance is its unique state-of-the-art directional shape. This borrows much from the stunning new Concept, including the revolutionary N-Tech Cap/Sandwich construction. Although obviously toned down a little compared to the Concept, the Rave still delivers that same combination of class leading on piste performance with powder board float, but in a more versatile all terrain package. Now as you would expect for a board with this much performance, the Rave utilises a traditional full-length camber profile. This is combined with a tight sidecut to deliver the optimum balance of hard charging response but with a more rider friendly cruising feel.

Internally the Rave utilises some of the most advanced technology available, and heading this up is the lightweight handmade Swiss wood core. This is formed from a combination of poplar and paulownia, with beech stringers along the edges and gives the perfect balance of pop and power. However, what really sets the Rave apart from other boards is that state of the art N-Tech construction. Utilising Nidecker's advanced Tri-Ax Plus glassfibre, the designers manipulate the profile of the board from cap at the tip to sandwich through the middle to cap at the tail. This combination creates torsionally stiff carbon/Kevlar reinforced zones at the contact points for lightning fast turn initiation and exit whilst still delivering that enhanced energy transfer under the feet from the ABS sidewalls construction. To finish of the Rave and to underline its high performance features, Nidecker create the base from super-fast Carbon Nano infused N9000 p tex.
