2023 Nidecker Venus Snowboard
With an upgraded shape, the ever-popular Venus is equipped for a new generation of women to tackle the whole mountain. Nidecker has given it a blunter, directional silhouette with a 10 mm set back stance that makes it easier to surf through deep snow but which is versatile enough for some switch riding if you like to get creative on side hits or take a few laps through the park. Under the hood, we’ve kept the same Master Core and paired it with a Standard Camrock profile which makes for lively response without feeling too twitchy as you switch edges. Triax glassing and our unique Absorbnid™ topsheet keep it feeling stable at high speeds, with minimal chatter. For experienced women who like to shred anything in their path, the Venus offers a fully spec’d quiver killer at a great price.
Standard CamRock – This tried and true camber is perfect for riders who want to enjoy all aspects of snowboarding. With camber between the bindings and rocker evenly distributed in the nose and tail, this is the all-mountain, all-conditions profile that will leave you stoked and smiling from ear to ear.
Flex Rating – 6/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Diamond Nose – This is a newly developed shape with a longer transition that allows for a more compact nose with increased float.
Diamond Tail – This evolution of the all-round tail is compact with a longer transition for increased lift, allowing you to ride switch without compromising the board's responsiveness.
R6 Series – The ultra short 6+ meter radius is the one Nidecker uses for smaller and lighter snowboarders. It's perfect for riders who prefer finesse to power, and want a board that delivers responsive, reassuring turns.
Master Core – The Master Core construction is the result of a long history of experimentation in materials and woodcraft. It's the perfect harmony of different wood densities and varieties (poplar, beech, spruce, and paulownia), resulting in a superior weight to power ratio and an ultra-strong, extra-responsive lightweight core.
Triax Plus – The result extensive testing with riders and engineers, Nidecker's 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.
Vibrak - Two strips of Kevlar® and carbon reduce the vibrations and chatter under your feet, resulting in a very comfortable ride and giving you the confidence to go bigger and faster, no matter what the mountain throws at you
Premium Sandwich – This next level construction steps up the power and response of the standard sandwich manufacturing. Adding advanced materials like Carbon and Kevlar® gives the board more pop and improved shock absorption.
N-5000 – The N-5000 is a universal base designed to absorb wax and retain it longer. Exceptionally durable, this base will take you anywhere.
Absorbnid – This innovative top layer has been developed to absorb unwanted vibrations allowing for responsive and dynamic boards that still give you a smooth and comfortable ride.
2x4 - 5 Inserts – With 5 rows of inserts every 2 cm, this combination is the industry standard and works with all bindings on the market. The reference stance is the middle position.
