Product Info

If you're looking for more fun and less work, the Niche Hawthorn Snowboard has got the goods for you. Based on the stiffer Maelstrom, the Hawthorn brings the same early rise, tapered tail, directional twin shape to the masses, with a mellower flex for cruising groomers and splashing around in the pow. Like all Niche boards for this season, the Hawthorn is a zero-waste product and is 100% recyclable.

Product Details

5Soft twin flex, for predictable riding and perfect presses.

Shape

Tapered Tail

Sustainable FSC Certified Poplar Wood Core

Laminates

Basalt StringersSimilar vibration dampening and pop characteristics to carbon fiber, but much more eco-friendly.

Snappy Sap™ Bio-ResinMore elastic and snappier than normal resin, it dampens vibrations and has extremely high adhesion properties to help keep your board from delaminating. Traditional resins can also be extremely toxic to people and the environment. As opposed to traditional petroleum-based materials, Snappy Sap is composed of bio-renewable materials from the industrial waste streams of the paper pulp and bio-fuels industries.

Recyclamine™Recyclamine™ curing agents are the only epoxy hardeners available that enable full recyclability of thermosetting epoxy resins. This technology provides chemical resistance and mechanical properties similar to conventional, non-recyclable amine-cured epoxies. Flexibility, toughness, and low temperature properties are equal or superior to conventional epoxies.

Base

Sintered Base

Edges

2X Traction BumpsAid in smoother edge transitions for a more relaxing ride.

Topsheet

Digi-print TopsheetA lacquer-free topsheet that's also thinner than most snowboard topsheets. This down on excess material and makes your board lighter. Niche digitally prints directly onto the topsheet, cutting up to 60% of the material and 75% of the energy needs during alternate printing processes.

Water-based InksNiche uses non-toxic, solvent-free, water-based inks for printing graphics on all snowboard production.

Graphics

Graphic Story"The graphic is an illustration of the Aurora Australis, or southern lights. You could just as easily say they are of the northern lights... but, I'm running with southern lights on the opposite pole because I feel like the world forgets that those are a thing! The coordinates on this hot stamp are as follows: 8.156754° S, 125.641006° E Uaro-Ana, Atauro Island, Timor-Leste; this is part of the "Coral Triangle". The Coral Triangle in Southeast Asia is one of the world’s most endangered coral reefs. Fishing is the main source of income for many people in this region and as a result, reefs are over-exploited and subjected to damaging techniques such as blast and poison fishing. Reefs are at high risk to climate change as higher water temperatures and extreme weather cause coral bleaching." - Ana Van Pelt, Co-Founder/Creative Director
