    Total package.

    No one knows what to expect when you hit the mountain—one day you might be slashing powder in the trees and dropping cliffs, the next you're carving groomers and lapping the park. Luckily, the Niche Aether Snowboard is equipped to handle your unpredictable nature, thanks to a versatile profile and flex that let you shred any terrain at a moment's notice.

    Camber underfoot offers pop and edge control for railing turns, bombing steeps, and venturing into technical terrain, while rocker between the bindings keeps it catch-free when spinning in the park and adds float in the fresh stuff. A mid-stiff flex offers stability at speed without making the board feel too stiff for jibbing. Magne-Traction helps you hold an edge in icy conditions, and basalt stringers offer the pop and damping of carbon fiber, but are renewable and therefore eco-friendlier. Speaking of eco-friendlier, Snappy Sap bio resin reduces environmental impact while adding a snappier, smoother feel to your ride, and recycled edges, sidewalls, and base reduce waste.

    17/18 Niche Aether - "Swiss Army Knife"

    The total package. If your day consists of riding anything from powder to groomers to park laps, this is your snowboard equivalent to a swiss army knife. The Magne-Traction will give you unparalelled control in any snow condition, and the multi-camber will give you stability on groomers, float in pow and greasy presses. The Snappy Sap Bio-Resin and mid-stiff flex on this directional twin add a ton of pop to your ride. With a super fast sintered base, the award-winning Aether is ready to tackle the entire mountain.

    Pow to Park

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This Niche board is perfect for the rider that wants a board to perform all mountain, in the powder, and in the park. The profile has rocker between the feet for fun soft snow performance, camber underfoot to give you a nice pop off kickers in the park, and rocker in the tip and tail for optimal float in on those deep days. They have added magne-traction to this board for those steeper lines to keep you in complete control. This board is produced in the Mothership in Austria, it is sustainably built and designed meticulously. I'd recommend this board to someone who likes all mountain powder play, and park laps when it's not deep.

    Leader of Sustainability

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The Niche Aether is essentially the twin version of the Story, but coming in just a hair softer. The medium flex and centered stance paired with a multi-camber profile give you the stability, pop, and power you need to rail through turns or rip in powder. A rocker section in between the feet keeps things catch free and camber to the contact points give you the power needed for everything in between. An aggressive magne-traction locks you in on the icier slopes.

    Niche has been the leader in building eco-friendly snowboards. Using more locally sourced and recycled materials and ensuring the least amount of waste is produced, Niche has taken sustainability by the reigns and have proven you can have award-winning snowboards while still being environmentally responsible.

    Yes sir, first board from Niche but not my first from the Mothership. It's a beaut. One of the best top sheets I've ever seen! The flex isn't too stiff, the shape of the nose and tail is awesome, and their version of magnetraction looks solid.
