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.
2X Traction Bumps: Extra edge contact points to give your board more edge control and stability, especially in icy conditions.
Basalt Stringers:Similar vibration dampening and pop characteristics to carbon fiber, but much more eco-friendly.
Snappy Sap™ Bio-Resin: More 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.
