Product Info

The Tenth Anniversary Edition of the Niche Maelstrom Snowboard features a graphic inspired by Viking mythology and symbolism. So, for starters, you've got Norse magic printed right into the fabric of this board. If that's not enough, this directional freeride and carving powerhouse slices through smooth, choppy, or variable snow like a Viking longship. The Maelstrom swiftly initiates turns using its hybrid directional camber profile and 2X Traction Bumps on the edges. Basalt stringers add pop and stability to dampen the vibrations of the rough waters you'll be plowing through.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional Camber, Rockered NoseRocker in the nose leading into traditional camber underfoot. Float effortlessly through powder and lock-in on groomers.

Flex

8Stiff directional flex pattern. Powerful, snappy, and stable.

Shape

DirectionalAll-mountain performance with a slight taper. A setback stance and stiffened tail makes for a snappy board that can tackle the entire mountain.

Core

Sustainable Wood CoreA combination of paulownia, poplar, and bamboo.

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.

Sidewalls

Recycled ABS Sidewalls

Base

Recycled Sintered Base

Edges

Recycled Steel Edges

Magne-Traction® | 2X Traction BumpsExtra edge contact points give your board more edge control and stability, especially in icy conditions. 0.75mm bumps in the binding area for added grip and enhanced carving ability.

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.
