An incredibly fun directional shape for rippin’ turns, hopping in and out of trees, and slashin’ the great white. Designed to charge through choppy areas, enter turns with ease and power through the exits, while offering amazing float and maintaining your ability to lock-in on groomers. This board is an incredibly fun pow shape but one that you won’t be disappointed strapping into for a rad day of resort riding.

Stable and ripping shortboard in powder and groomers, definitely a unique and standout character amongst the pack. Always had me coming back for more to see what this directional creative shape can do!
The Pyre is a beast! It’s wide and the camber has plenty of pop. The float was great in the powder. The Pyre rips carves and goes waaaaay fast when you get back on the groomers. The graphics from Niche have this cool matte black finish to them and they all look sick. Eco friendly and local.
Gnarly shred stick! I’m 5’6” 160lb, size 8 boot and ride the 150. First thing I noticed was the board was noticeably the heavy. Not a horribly thing. This thing thunders through the chunder. The board is super damp and you cannot feel any chatter whatsoever. Absolutely rails turns. I’ve ridden it with Cartel Xs, and Jones Mercury bindings and the carving is much much powerful with the skate tech. Skidded turns are no problem. The wide deck makes for a great landing gear in powder. This performs best in powder for sure. Buttering off the nose is sooo nice. The sweet spot is pretty big and It feels easy to balance. One negative is that it takes a lot of effort for someone my size to get this thing up in the air. I’m sure if I was bigger it would be easier. I ride pretty aggressively but I am small. The board rides pretty stiff and heavy. Someone a little bigger than me with a size 10ish boot would love this as an all mountain killer. Slightly too wide for me too take out on groomer days but my buddy loves it as he is bigger than me. As my dedicated powder board, this is perfect for me. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for a pow slayer and certain people for a one board quiver killer.
Also had thought about dropping to the ember at 145 as an everyday board. I think that would be a fun option for smaller people like myself too. It would probably become poppy and playful on groomer days.
Get stoked on this board. It’s a killer one

I mostly ride the Maelstrom and the Fathom but on sunny spring groomer days this board absolutely eats up the carves. Love some t-shirt euro-carves.
Also for in resort deep pow days this things charges hard. with the camber and stiffness it can charge cliffs way harder than other volume shifts I have ridden. I size down about 10cm for in resort pow charging.
Also, for big backcountry lines at high speeds (Baker, AK, Jackson Hole, Cat/heli laps) I size down only about 5cm and this thing is an absolute beast on massive lines. Love this board!
