Our bestselling all-mountain deck features a brand new shape for 2023, with a modern blunt tail and a diamond nose helping the Escape to crush any terrain.Under the hood, we’ve kept the same innovative construction that earned this board its reputation for balanced performance. The Master Core combines four wood species for unparalleled strength and pop, while the triax layup includes carbon at either end to deliver even more control at high speed. It’s a mid-stiff ride that’s equally comfortable pinning down trails, ducking into the trees or taking a lap through the park.
Thanks to our Camrock profile, which blends camber between the bindings with early-rise rocker at the nose and tail, the Escape still offers friendly edge changes – making it super accessible to a wide range of shredders. A subtle 10mm setback stance won’t get in the way of riding switch but helps you cruise more easily over bumps and slush, with less back leg burn on those blower days. It’s all capped off with an ash veneer topsheet that’s naturally dampening and ensures our number one quiver killer looks just as sick as it rides.
I rode this board on the new Nidecker Supermatics in early season conditions at Loveland, CO.
This board is perfect for laying down heavy carves on bluebird groomer days and overall just enjoying a great day out with the crew. The turn initiation was above average but nothing spectacular, as this board really excelled at committing to turns with hardly any chatter. Chop and chunder was no match for the full camber and medium-stiff flex of the Escape so all of my lines were smooth and worry-free. Moguls and tree runs were a little more difficult to handle as this deck is not as nimble as other boards in the same category. I did run into some pockets of powder during my time with the Escape, and I felt like it did just fine- once again, above average but does not excel in this area.
Overall, a great board to take out on days with mixed conditions where you want to go fast and not worry about what kind of snow is coming at you. Send it and forget it!
