Destroy all terrain, save the earth.
Built with sustainable materials and designed to crush anything you throw its way, the Niche Aether Snowboard slays freshly manicured parks, icy groomers, and secret pow stashes with equal parts stability and poppy playfulness. Dark graphics add to the board's appeal, making for a sinister all-terrain ride that's sure to turn heads in the lift line.
Designed as a one-board solution for riding anything on the mountain, the Aether features a medium flex that's stiffest underfoot, softening up at the tip and tail for a more playful feel when you're boosting off natural rollers and buttering down the mountain. Its directional twin shape enhances float and straight-line stability, all without sacrificing the board's ability to stomp landings and charge kickers switch. Multi-camber delivers a catch-free rocker between the feet that's ideal for jibbing and floating through fresh pow—with camber underfoot continuing to the contact points for added response and drive when you're railing high-speed carves and snapping off the lip of kickers.
As with all of Niche's snowboards, the Aether is designed to be as sustainable as possible, with natural and recycled materials carefully placed throughout. The Digi-Print topsheet not only looks amazing with its matte-like finish, but it completely eliminates the need for toxic lacquer finishes. Sustainable wood harvested from poplar makes up the core for a reliably smooth-flexing board with plenty of durability for hard-charging riders. Snappy Sap Bio-Resin boosts the overall pop of the board, also reducing excess vibration when you're cruising over choppy snow. Aggressive Magne-Traction edges deliver tenacious grip on hardpack and icy snow, ensuring sure-footed response when you're riding steep faces and treacherous "Ice Coast" conditions. Add in recycled, reinforced steel edges and recycled ABS sidewalls for a board that's ready to take a serious thrashing all over the mountain.

My Favorite Deck - The Aether
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Niche brings a lot to market with all their boards: Environmentally friendlier construction, a great brand story, a rad team, and boards that perform. They've scored numerous awards over the past few years. I've ridden hundreds of snowboards and this is the one I choose the Aether to be my main. What sold me was the boards versatile ability. It felt comfortable riding pow, slashing groomers and hitting up the park. It's rare to find a board that can do 2 of these, let alone 3. It accomplishes this with a perfect medium flex, a unique take on magnatraction and a slightly directional shape. I'd like to call out the magnatraction specifically because it is a little different than the Mervin brands. It is more aggressive in the center of the board and mellows at the contact points. I found this to cut down on any tick tocking feelings when flat lining into a jump or feature.
Size wise, I ride a 10 boot, am 5'11", 165 lbs and I ride the 156.
