      A few days ago I had the chance to ride a Niche snowboard the “Story” model for the first time curtesy of EcoLounge. Before I took it out the demo on its maiden ride I had an opportunity to speak to the rep Nick about the company and hear his personal take on the product, he ultimately convinced me to take out the Story from the lineup as it was his favorite and what a solid recommendation that was!
      So after a short ride up the hill to Bogus and a quick binding setup I was ready to ride the 159 CM directional camber rocker camber profile All Mtn setup. I paired the board with Arbor Cypress bindings and K2 Ender boots for the test. So from first glance it has an aggressive magna traction with a reasonably stiff flex. It was an extremely lightweight board for the size and a very interesting graphic. All of their graphics have a very good backstory and related to the planet with a geographical coordinates that correlates.
      With all that being said, it was off to the snow to rip some turns. Instantly I noticed the magna track and was able to ease off the pressure to get the board to cooperate. It had instant grip that inspired confidence on the morning firm snow. The board had amazing edge hold and given the conditions it was an extreme positive right off the bat. It inspired control and with that came speed. Had really good deep carved turns right into the first run. At speed the board had no chatter and pure edge hold. Took it to backside to find some soft snow and test float and off trail rideability. After a few laps I found fresh tracks on the face and that’s where the rest of demo time was spent with the board. It really floated well and had a nice pivot point. For as aggressive as the magna track was I expected a little edge catch here and there and that did not happen. In the shaded areas there was a lot of crust and the typical difference you might feel in the transition from shade to sun wasn’t even noticeable. It really ended up being the perfect board for the conditions. Responsive and light with a touch of being made as environmentally friendly as a snowboard can be made. I was overall impressed and looking to add one to the personal quiver.
      If you are in the market for a snowboard I highly recommend going to EcoLounge and taking one of the demo’s for a spin. Thanks Eco crew for letting me take it out! If you are an Instructor or SnowPro go in and talk to Eco and they’ll take care of ya!
