Niche Theme 155 Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: Chris Pearson

BOARD: Niche Theme 155

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I love that it’s 100% recyclable. Really hope to see recyclamine get adopted elsewhere in the industry and have composites become more sustainable

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I worry that the cost of shipping around manufacturing waste to centers that have these recycling capabilities may be cost prohibitive until the technology is widely adopted but it is very encouraging to see some progress being made to move the industry in that direction.

OVERALL COMMENTS: This was the only twin tip I took out so I had to take a lap through the park on it. Nice pop off the lip, low swing weight on spins, fun to butter, solid board. Very nimble and fun to carve through the trees on as well

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  6
