Nidecker Ultralight 2014 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

The Nidecker Ultralight is just like the Nidecker Megalight except a little softer, lighter and more expensive. It’s hard to even do a review of this board because the performance, specs, and design is pretty much the same so read the mega light review.  We don’t know how Nidecker maintains the same feel as the mega light with a softer flex and lighter ride but somehow they do.  

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.

The Megalight is their flagship board. Is it worth it to get the Ultralight over the Megalight?  For $300 extra we don’t think so but it’s up to you to judge for yourself.  If you have to have the lightest, softest and possibly best all conditions tapered freeride board out there then you have no choice.

The Ultralight has been camrock (hybrid camber) for the last few years and this is the call over the old camber model because of the easier turn initiation and better float in powder.  If you want more pop from an ollie or carve then the old Camber (if you can find it) is the better call.

Both the Megalight and Ultralight are some of the best powder/freeride boards we have ever experienced and they defy the way a board with these specs should ride.

I use to be pretty amped on Camrock and still like it but I’d like to see the camber evolve into a longer/higher camber on the Megalight and Ultralight.  I’d say don’t change the rocker in the nose but extend the camber a bit towards the tail so there is more pop there and more spring in a carve. Still, it’s a great board but that’s my 2 cents for the year 2014.

The 2012 -2014 are very similar and we still feel that with the Megalight around the Ultralight is redundant.  We’d rather see a different shape and ride instead of a lighter Megalight.
