The third addition to Nidecker’s Classic Series, the Babs. Together with the Nidecker Liberty and Pro Pipe, the Nidecker Babs has been reintroduced to the market as a celebration of Nidecker’s 35th anniversary as a snowboard manufacturer. Just like with the two other boards, the Babs has also been brought back with its iconic old school graphics.
This board is named after the iconic French snowboarder Jean Baptiste Charlet (aka Babs) – a real legend of his time, a guy who participated in the first snowboard pipe contest at the 1998 Nagano Olympics. The board itself might have been embellished with the original graphics, but the tech has been upgraded to match the needs of the modern day shredder.
“The camber profile provides pop, excellent edge-hold and response, making it ideal for laying down those clean carves. ”
Keeping it traditional, the Babs takes on the classic camber profile that was, and still is, the bedrock for performance snowboards, especially those that excel in the pipe. The camber profile provides pop, excellent edge-hold, and response – making it ideal for laying down those clean carves. If you’re looking for a performance board with precision, this comeback kid is more than ideal.
With a light yet strong core, carbon and Kevlar for added strength and dampening, and Nidecker’s lightning fast base, you can be sure this board won’t let you be the last one down. The Babs is a light creation, and thanks to the tech guys over at Nidecker – it’s also a very sturdy one. This board will allow you to charge down the mountain faster than the speed of light.
We’re stoked that the Nidecker Babs snowboard has made a return to the market. If you’re looking for an old school design wrapped around a technically advanced all-rounder, you’ll definitely have a blast ripping through the mountain on this one.
