The Nidecker Axis is for those aspiring freeriders who want to learn to ride powder and understand how to make an aggressive turn as soon as possible. The Axis has been around for a while and used to be camber but now has a better hybrid camber that makes it easier to turn as well as give you more float in powder.
There is also a -25mm set back for the 148 and the rest have a -30mm set back which is more than most boards out there. This makes this borderline excellent in powder and a fun board for the entry level to even an advanced rider on a budget. You also get a good sintered base that is far better than all the bases in this price range. It’s a shame this is so hard to find in the US because this would be a solid choice for most riders. Before 2013 the Axis use to get more and more freeride as it got bigger but now all sizes are the same set back as well as the same type of all mountain ride.
