The Nidecker Gamma APX is one of the most unique boards we’ve ever created, this freestyle twin takes concepts we’ve learned from nature and mutates them into a shape to inspire creativity all over the mountain.
It’s a true twin with a difference: symmetrical nose to tail but asymmetrical from edge to edge. As turns take more force to initiate on your heel edge, we’ve made this sidecut tighter than the toe edge, so whilst the board may look uneven, it actually balances your ride equally toe-to-heel. Coupled with a positive profile for better carving control and more pop, the Gamma floats in the deep and holds its line on hardpack, both ways.
First developed for the Alpha and Beta, we’ve brought over our 3D-shaped Evolution Spoon Nose, now on a twin shape for the first time. At the nose, it gives a unique rolling sensation whilst transitioning between turns as well as added float in soft snow. At the tail it gives a new, looser connection whilst buttering or jamming out slashes, but the edges re-engage with pin sharp precision as soon as you lean it over.
The APX version comes with a faster, harder wearing N-9000 base and dual carbon stringers on either side of the core for more pop and reactivity, but what really sets it apart is the Nidactive APX edge technology.
This places the core directly over the edge, which not only looks like nothing else, but actually increases the force you can exert from your bindings, making this an agile, adaptive and engaging riding experience.
The Gamma is for freestyle focused riders who want to take skills honed in the park to the rest of the mountain. Think spinning in and out of pillow lines, finding new lines through natural halfpipes and shaping slushy hits in the spring. It’s a unique board, made for unique experiences.
