Why we chose the Nidecker Venus Snowboard: One of the most popular women’s boards on the market just got an all-new shape for 2021/22 – and it’s sick.
Snowboard design has evolved a lot over the past few seasons. Directional shapes are no longer the preserve of dedicated powder boards – in fact many all-mountain models are losing that classic twin-tip look as riders realise the benefit of a silhouette that’s slightly biased towards your regular stance.
The Venus is one such example. A staple of Nidecker’s women’s line for many years, it’s been radically upgraded for 2021/22 with blunter lines and a slightly shorter tail. The result? Better turns, more float and increased stability when you’re blasting around the hill, while retaining all the freestyle performance you need to take it to the park.
“Riders of every level who want one board to do it all – piste, park, pow – will have their prayers answered by the Venus”
Who Is The Nidecker Venus For?
Riders of every level who want one board to do it all – piste, park, pow – will have their prayers answered by the Venus. Its mid flex is right in the sweet spot between friendly and responsive, and that new shape lets you make the most of the mountain’s natural terrain, especially if you’re lucky enough to score some fresh snow.
