Representing the pinnacle of freeride performance in Nidecker's line, the Rave Snowboard features an aggressive flex pattern, camber profile, and directional shape for unflappable stability at high speeds and loaded response while you're picking apart technical terrain all over the mountain. Its directional shape features a substantial set-back for stability at higher velocities, combined with a double-square nose that's longer and wider for additional float in powder. Seeing as how traditional camber is a bit catchy and dives underneath powder, Nidecker uses flat camber along the tip and tail transitions to take the bite out of the board, as well as make it a bit more neutral in powder. This way, it won't throw you off-balance for tiny mistakes on edge, plus it's a bit easier to pilot in deep snow, as the tip and tail aren't trying to submerge downwards. However make no mistake, the Rave is still oriented towards the expert rider who prefers to open it up at scary-fast speeds. Then, the Rave Snowboard uses N-Tech construction for a bit lighter weight and easier board manipulation, but without sacrificing strength or responsiveness. The paulownia and poplar core retains all the strength you'd expect from a board of this pedigree, but without excess weight slowing you down. It's reinforced with snappy carbon stringers and kevlar for added vibration damping when you're hauling down the mountain.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
