The Aether is a bit stiffer than what I normally look for in a board HOWEVER I was using this board in the spring at Snowbird so the extra stiffness didnt bother me too much. The more I rode on the Aether the more I liked it. Although its a true reverse camber deck the rise is very slight and it really has the feel of a flat board not a reverse camber board. This is one of the funnest all mountain boards Ive ridden in years and its also super durable. I really hated giving this demo board back at the end of the season and I guess thats the best testimony of all ....

The Knew is Niche's park deck. Its labeled as soft but its park soft not urban soft so dont expect a noodle. Best attribute of the Knew is how damp of a ride it gives despite being a park board... in fact Im 6'1 and over 200lbs and was able to ride the 152 at Snowbird in the spring. A fun a durable board the only downside is its extruded base which keeps it a bit slower than some of its counterparts. Reminds me of boards like Capitas Indoor Survival and Rides Machete.. youll love this board!

There are always "advancements" in riding gear each year. Usually these things (baseless bindings for example) are just fads and soon go away. This is not the case with Magne-Traction or reverse camber. Anyone whose been on a Magne-Traction board knows theres no going back and now reverse camber just ups the ante. The banana is the most natural and responsive board i've ever ridden. Its got crazy pop, awesome pressing flex, kills it in the park, and backcountry pow. All you have to do is look at the industry and see the other companies trying to catch up. Rossi Bataleon K2 and Salomon are all adopting either reverse camber or their own version of Magne-Traction. Welcome to the future....

have been a huge drake fan for years but i will admit i cheated on them the last two years and im really sorry i did!! this pair of bindings is very light and has great response. i also like the lower high back and 0 forward lean on these baabies is really 0!! No more taking off forward lean hardware to really get 0 lean. the fast adjust straps are an awesome idea and have already come in handy a few times. cheap and awesome just like agreat date lol 5 of 5 fer sure!!!

ive always looked forward to the minhado/eeles projects ever since neoproto days but this one just seems to lack a bit. good group of riders and well filmed but just falls a bit short than their last few efforts and to be honest a cant figure out why cause its still a frequent watch for me. extras has more footage of about 6-8 of the riders.

I knew i would get this vid this year despite the up and down of recent md vids. the other reviews had me prepaired for another chulksmack but i think its better than i thought it was gonna be. overall a solid vid. nothing in here stands out at first but everythings big clean and well captured. its one of those vids where you really appreciate it after a few views. i like the music which is mostly mello techno stuff like royksopp, ming and ping, junior boys and shawn lees ping pong orchestra... as with most md movies it has little for bonus/xtras
