Niche Pyre 155 Snowboard Review 2018-2019
TESTER: Mikey Franco
BOARD: Niche Pyre 155
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 5
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: The ethos behind the brand. The shape was fun and has potential.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It felt like it had a bad tune, maybe edge high. Fun to ride off piste but on hard snow the board felt super catchy.
OVERALL COMMENTS: Solid direction/shape but the tune seemed off.
