Designed to be ridden ~5cm shorter than your all-mountain board and still give you effortless float in powder. Don't let the swallow tail fool you into thinking this is just a powder board, the Pyre rips on groomers too.
An incredibly fun directional shape for rippin’ turns, hopping in and out of trees, and slashin’ the great white. Designed to charge through choppy areas, enter turns with ease and power through the exits, while offering amazing float and maintaining your ability to lock-in on groomers. This board is an incredibly fun pow shape but one that you won’t be disappointed strapping into for a rad day of resort riding. Plus, this board uses Recyclamine® which means it’s zero-waste and fully recyclable!
NICHE SNOWBOARDS not only rip, they are produced thoughtfully & sustainably, with the lowest impact on the environment. Niche use recycled steel and plastics where they can, and every board in the Niche 2020 line is 100% recyclable!
What does this mean? When you're finished with your Niche board (ie ridden it for 10 years, want to upgrade etc), drop it back to a Niche dealer and the dealer will send the snowboard back to Niche to be broken down and re-purposed into new snowboards & other products.
How does it work? Thanks to a new glue, developed by Niche, called 'Recylamine', the snowboard can be dissolved and broken apart using a top-secret solution, enabling all structural components and materials to be harvested... These materials can then be recycled, repurposed or upcycled to create new snowboards, or other products like surfboard fins and binding components. To encourage people to recycle, you'll even you'll receive a credit on a new Niche deck for doing so!
