Girls looking for a tool to unlock new skills to up their thrills on fresh parts of the mountain, drop your looking balls on this for just a moment. Nidecker’s new-for-2021 Micron Flake is the nicely-priced go-anywhere shred stick that’ll help you graduate from the piste, improve fast and have fun, whilst leaving a bit of juice in the tank to take you on an adrenaline-stacked lap or two through the park, too.
The Swiss snow kings have gone all-out when it comes to helping the kids of today go bigger, harder and faster in 2021, by completely redesigning the Micron Flake and every other board in their kid’s range for this season. And they’ve done it purely to pump them all with their new Sidekick tech. It’s an exclusive innovation that’s bang-on perfect for aiding progression on the piste and pow alike, by lifting the edges at the widest point of the nose and tail to amplify float, smoothing out the ride across rougher terrain, and helping make turning as free, easy and steezy and possible.
“If your knee-high Anna Gasser is as serious about getting better as she is having an epic time, give this the attention it deserves”
Nidecker haven’t stopped there with the Micron Flake’s tech spec, though. Sure, it comes with the usual trimmings you’d expect from a beginner-intermediate kids’ all-round all-mountain whip, such as a well-balanced flex that’s not only easily workable and super forgiving, but softer through landings too – especially good news when a lap means leaving no park kicker, powder drop or sidehit unexplored.
Strapped to the undercarriage is Nidecker’s super durable and wax-absorbing N-5000 base to help push it anywhere, whilst their trusty blend of beech and poplar for the woodcore gives a whole lotta life to the ride this thing wants to give. If your knee-high Anna Gasser is as serious about getting better as she is having an epic time, give this the attention it deserves.
