New for the 2020 line, the Niche Nightshade is a directional twin, with a stable camber dominant profile and medium flex... For the more freestyle focused rider that wants a 1 board quiver, capable of holding it's own on the mountain and in the park. The wider waist width accommodates those with bigger feet.
The Nightshade is an awesome all-mountain twin and your new secret weapon. With a true twin shape, centered stance and medium flex, it will take your freestyle skills to the next level. The camber dominant profile gives you more pop than you’ll know what to do with, basalt stringers ensure your ride will be stable, smooth, and crazy lightweight. If you’re looking for a snappy, cambered twin companion that can go anywhere from the park to the rest of the mountain, the Nightshade is the best of all worlds.
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!
