Niche Minx 146 Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: Micah anderson

BOARD: Niche Minx 146

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Obviously that it’s environmentally friendly… also how light it is yet it still has tons of control, pop and can charge through chunder.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Could be just a touch more stiff. It is awesome as is but you can press it by just lifting a foot up. Not a bad thing but I feel as if I were to purchase an all mountain board I would want it a hair more stiff to be confident ripping around. Obviously it’s a more park // spring day oriented board so I think it rules for that but again maybe just a tiny bit more stiff.

OVERALL COMMENTS: I think this board is awesome. I would love to be able to ride It at my home resort. It does kind of feel like a noodle in the sense of lifting up a foot and it presses yet it does not handle like a noodle at all. It handles very well. Super smooth, lots of pop, ultra light and very quick response.
