The Platinum’s extraordinary performance has made it one of the most acclaimed boards in the Nidecker lineup. From hard-charging freeriders to seasoned boardercross racers, this all-mountain charger delivers stunning responsiveness and control. Once again Nidecker utilised sustainable materials in its construction, including FSC-approved wood cores and linseed fibres in the structural layers, ensuring the Platinum blends eco-friendliness with one of the most responsive rides out there.
The Platinum was designed as a high-performance all-mountain/freeride weapon. Slash high-speed turns on hardpack and powder, or stomp huge backcountry kickers and cliffs, this board offers the required versatility and control.
Twin Directional is a hybrid shape, combining the Twin-Tip and the Directional shapes. It will give you the float and control of a Directional shape, but with a twin “feel” that helps you perform better switch. The stiffness is Twin, but the inserts have a small setback like the Directional.
Camrock represents the best rocker/camber combination in snowboarding today. This tried and true camber variant will not disappoint for overall mountain performance. With camber between the bindings and rocker evenly distributed in the nose and tail, this is the all-mountain, all-conditions camber that will leave you stoked and smiling from ear to ear. Standard Camrock is the camber choice of the Nidecker pro team and staff. It is the best hybrid rocker/camber profile on the market today - bar none!
The Flex on the Platinum is medium/firm, this gives the board a balanced feel. It’s hard enough to stay in control on hard charged mountain lines, pistes or bigger kickers, but it still has enough flex for advanced powder buttering.
The next level Premium Sandwich construction steps up the power and response of the standard sandwich manufacturing. By adding advanced materials such as Carbon and Kevlar®, the board gets more pop and an improved shock absorption. The innovative Absorbmid top layer has been developed to absorb unwanted vibrations, this allows Nidecker to develop responsive and dynamic boards which still give you a smooth and fatigue free ride. Nideckers standard 90° Dual PLUS biaxial fibreglass is designed for forgiving response throughout your ride and a predictable torsional flex. It is bombproof, and reliable and is perfect for all terrain types and riders. The Master core construction is a product of a long history of experimentation in materials and woodcraft. It is the perfect harmony of different wood densities and wood species (poplar, beech, spruce, and paulownia) which lightens the core and results in a superior weight-to-performance-to power ratio, and an ultra-strong, uber-responsive, yet lightweight, core.
