Nidecker Blade 2012 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The Nidecker Blade is a pretty decent snowboard.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

Nidecker is a great snowboarding company but they are virtually unknown in the US. They also make the YES and Jones Snowboards that are so Hansel right now in the US. I think but might be wrong but the blade is where the idea of the Yes Jackpot came from.

The 2012’s have the same specs, almost the same design, same hybrid camber, and sizing.  They also have the same new sidecut called ultimate traction that adds a little more edge hold between the feet.

For 2012 the Blade also has a faster base than 2011. The Blade is a more aggressive version of hybrid camber (camrock) that has more camber between the feet than other nidecker boards to give it a little more spring between the feet.  It’s not as poppy as a good camber board but it’s pretty lively for a board of this design and tech level.

The CamRock technology is very stable flat basing and at high speeds.  The float in powder is very good for a small twin and the board even has some good pop.  For the price, you can’t go wrong with a hybrid camber board like this.  This is an all park kind of ride that his mellow but happy anywhere.
