Protect the planet while you shred everything the mountain has to offer.
Niche Snowboards strives to minimize environmental impact when building a board, and their all-mountain-freestyle monster Aether is no different. The sustainably farmed poplar core is wrapped in Snappy Sap Bio-Resin (as opposed to traditional petroleum-based epoxy) for a mega-poppy, non-toxic ride. A centered stance and reverse-camber profile let you spin into pow to your heart's content, and still press the holy hell out of a few park rails in the afternoon.
- Reverse camber profile for awesome pow float and catch-free freestyle fun
- Snappy Sap Bio-Resin is made with reclaimed waste products from the paper and bio-fuel industries—less environmental impact, tons of pop, and great resistance to de-lams
- Sustainably farmed poplar wood core is light, poppy and good for the planet
- Sintered base made with recycled material for more speed and less waste

Niche Team Rider Everest Arnold loves the Aether!
Go anywhere do anything at its best here with the Niche Aether!
A subtle rocker gives this deck amazing float in even the deepest of days! But keeps it stable on the hard pack. A stiffer flex pattern, Bio-Resin and Basalt construction make the Aether solid as hell and able to handle anything you throw at it!
Go green and buy a Niche Snowboard.
You won't regret it!
Best Board Ever!!
This board can handle anything on the mountain. I've taken it in the park, pow, and on some speedy groomers and it crushes it all! The flat camber center, slight rocker tip and tail, and mid-stiff flex make the Aether perfect for anything you throw at it. Thanks Niche for creating such a sick shred stick.
Board Review: Aether
On a sunny July afternoon at The Bird, we caught up with team rider Tony Hagedorn and he gave us the low-down on the Aether.

What board would you say is similar to the Aether with regard to edge hold, turning effort, speed, float, etc... I rode a 156 Burton Flying V last year and loved everything about it except its complete lack of edge hold.
The Aether is probably most similar to the Nitro Team Gullwing with regard to how it rides. If edge hold is the biggest issue for you however, then keep a look out for next season's Aether. It will have the added bonus of Magnetraction to give even BETTER edge hold! Hope that helps. :)
Aether is sick...
The Aether is a bit stiffer than what I normally look for in a board HOWEVER I was using this board in the spring at Snowbird so the extra stiffness didnt bother me too much. The more I rode on the Aether the more I liked it. Although its a true reverse camber deck the rise is very slight and it really has the feel of a flat board not a reverse camber board. This is one of the funnest all mountain boards Ive ridden in years and its also super durable. I really hated giving this demo board back at the end of the season and I guess thats the best testimony of all ....
A Board to Ride For!!!
After 17 years of shredding, and countless boards from some of the best companies that have been around, i've found the best!!! Many companies have come out with amazing shred sticks, but none seem to last, due to the company isn't around any longer, or the boards have been altered or discontinued. Either way, Niche has got the formula right, and is keeping it that way. This company is bound to succeed! If you want a board that is wicked in any condition, whether you care about the environment or not, Niche is the way to go. There forward thinking and all about progression, while saving the planet one board at a time. Trust this veteran, YOU WILL ENJOY THESE BOARDS!!!!
