The Nightshade is your all-mountain / freestyle performer who turns the whole mountain into a huge playground. Presses, butters, and jumps - whatever gets in your way, with this deck you'll hit every obstacle with creativity and style.
The Nightshade is an all-mountain / freestyle board, with lots of pop and stability to push your riding to a new level.
The perfectly symmetrical True Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Two Traction Bumps add edge contact points to give your board more edge control and stability, especially in icy conditions.
The Nightshade features a Camber Dominant Hybrid profile. A classic camber profile with a flatter mid-section that offers pop, stability, response and edge hold.
The medium flex is perfect for a freestyle / all-mountain board like the Nightshade. Not too soft and not too hard.
The forests that Niches wood cores come from are managed carefully to meet the social, economic, ecological, cultural and spiritual needs of current and future generations. The wood cores also come from a sustainable source, which means they are replaced by new trees! Niche also utilizes basalt stringers for added pop, stability, and crazy vibration dampening properties. Niche uses recycled materials for edges, base and sidewalls. Traditional resins can be extremely toxic to people and the environment. For Niche snowboards, they partnered with Entropy Resins to create the one-of-a-kind, Snappy Sap™ Bio-Resin. As opposed to traditional epoxies made primarily of petroleum-based materials, Snappy Sap™ Bio-Resin is composed of bio-renewable materials from the industrial waste streams of the paper pulp and bio-fuels industry. They digitally print their topsheets using water-based inks that use up to 90% fewer solvents than traditional inks and don’t use any lacquer, giving the boards a beautiful matte finish. Niche uses non-toxic, solvent-free, UV-based inks for printing graphics on all snowboard production.
