Pure Freecarving Nirvana!
The name came honestly - a description of how a customer felt after taking his first run on one of the original designs. Our goal was to create a functional all-around design mainly for use on groomed hills, but not so specific that it required perfect snow to perform. The design is now into its fourth season and, as usual, the refinements continue.
During on-hill testing, we tried different camber configurations and quickly found out that various riders had their own distinct preferences as to which model they liked. The answer was obvious - all 3 versions needed to be brought into production: Nirvana Balance, Nirvana Energy and Nirvana Vcam.
Fun and forgiving all-around high performance ride. Most comfortable to just get on and go as a result of its user friendly camber and flex pattern.
For riders working on improving their technique, this version is sure to put a smile on your face. Also an excellent choice for expert level riders who like to challenge their skills in less than ideal snow conditions. Just a good solid all around freecarve model with tremendous performance potential.
This version gets a higher camber with adjusted flex pattern to deliver its responsive ride. The Energy flex pattern is biased to be more rear stiff and front soft. This increases turn response along with turn exit energy and does not require excessive nose pressuring to get the job done.
Ideal for more skilled riders who prefer a centered riding style and can use the softer nose flex to their advantage on steep or icy hills. Grip on the Energy is exceptional on firm or icy snow, where it excels.
This version uses substantially more decamber at tip and tail with higher camber between the feet. The Vcam design allows for super smooth and solid turn initiation and the ability to take the board easily from carve to slide when required. It provides a very high level of stability and maintains a decent level of energy while exiting turns.
Nirvana sizes are available from 170 to 182 with sidecuts and waist widths to meet your individual needs. Most common sidecuts are:
