Men’s Good Wood Park Snowboards Under $450:
The 2014 Niche Knew
This small batch, Salt Lake based brand is known for its eco builds, and the Knew is no exception. Hemp stringers in place of carbon fiber for pop, stability, and vibration dampening. SnappySap bio resin (instead of petroleum), recycled ABS sidewalls, steel edges, and beeswax modified base. It’s a twin tip, flat camber shape just so you know.
Available Sizes: 149, 152, 154W, 156, 158W
“Pretty stiff for park (i.e. jibbing), but it busts through the thick ‘taters well.”
