How to define the Aecre Illicit? Just take a look at its shape, and you'll immediately see a powder-board. Its taper, setback, and a slight spoon in the nose contribute to exceptional float and effortless turns. But don't let that mislead you – when you move your bindings forward, it transforms into a thrilling fun-carver.


The shorter radius, combined with the speedbumps, adds a playful element and ensures excellent edge-hold. Thanks to the carbon/kevlar/basalt stringers running from tip to tail, this board offers responsiveness, pop, and robustness. Ride this board at your normal length for deep ‘trench diggin’ or powder. The Aecre Illicit could easily become the go-to directional daily driver for everyone, from intermediate riders to experts. Classifying this board within a single category is, well, Illicit!


Camber Rocker Profile Aecre Illicit Snowboard

Camber Rocker

The Rocker in the nose will make sure you will float in the deepest powder. Camber will provide edge-hold, stability and pop. Due to the camber in the tail, the end of your turn will be more energetic. Turn initiation will be a lot quicker.

Aecre Snowboard Illicit Materials

The materials 

ABS sidewalls

The ABS sidewall covers the core materials because we don't ride powder everyday. It can resist impacts and adds torsional rigidity. This ensures better edge-hold and grip. A must on every good ski or board.

Sintered base

Sintered bases are made by compressing Polyethylene pellets. This creates a porous layer that absorbs wax and therefore slides well. If you don't wax this Sintered base, it will also have little gliding ability. It is therefore advisable to wax once every 3 to 4 days.


Woven Fiberglass is necessary to increase boardlife, but it also adds torsional and axial stiffness and respons. By using a two and three layer sheet of fiberglass you will keep the ease of turning at lower speeds (biax) and add more power and precision to the edges (triax). Biax is woven at 45/45 or 0/90 degrees, Triax is woven at 0/30/30 degrees.

Carbon kevlar basalt stringers

A lot of boards have additional stringers a top of the core to add characteristics or reïnforce. With the Carbon-kevlar-basalt stringers we did both. Carbon gives the board more stiffness and pop/rebound. The pressure or power you put into it will come back instantaneously. This will give the board liveliness and a better turn initiation. Kevlar has a different density and will dampen vibrations. And of course it adds strenght and durability. Basalt is maybe a stranger in our midst. But it's stronger than steel, cold has no effect and the cold will not have any effect on it. This makes the board a lot stronger.

Paulownia - Poplar - Beech - Spruce

By using different types of wood you get a very dynamic core. Beech is hard, heavy and offers a lot of cushioning. Therfore used for placing the inserts. Poplar is one of the most used type of wood. It has a good weight to strenght ratio and grows pretty fast. However it's more soft then some others. Paulownia has a better stiff to weight ratio than Poplar and therefore used when weight is an issue. Flexible Spruce is widely spread, easy to grow and process. Which makes it an environmentally good choice.


There are placed small reversed sidecuts beside the inserts. These subtle 1.3mm bumps are extra contactpoints at the heel-and toeside of the board and will give you extra grip in icy conditions but not slow you down.
