Top of the line when it comes to freeride performance in Nidecker's line, the Rave features an aggressive flex pattern, camber profile, and directional shape for unflappable stability at high speeds and loaded response while you're picking apart technical terrain all over the mountain. Its directional shape features a substantial set-back for stability at higher velocities, combined with a double-square nose that's longer and wider for additional float in powder. Seeing as how traditional camber is a bit catchy and dives underneath powder, Nidecker uses flat camber to take the bite out of the board, as well as make it a bit more neutral in powder. This way, it won't throw you off-balance for tiny mistakes on edge, plus it's a bit easier to pilot in deep snow, as the tip and tail aren't trying to submerge downwards. However make no mistake, the Rave is still oriented towards the expert rider who prefers to open it up at scary-fast speeds.
