If there was a pattern in responses about the Theme, it was that it was both light and powerful. Testers also noted the even flex pattern from nose-to-tail--some loved that, while others suggested a more differentiated flex between the board's center, nose, and tail. This eco-conscious, positively cambered freestyle offering from Niche employs a medium flex pattern and had riders relishing its capabilities when logging airtime and putting it on edge. "It does whatever you ask of it--jumps, jibs, or turns," explained one such satisfied tester, adding that, "It could be a quiver killer." Another tester on the light side of the weight spectrum declared, "If it was going to be a dedicated jibber it could be slightly softer but as an all around destroyer it flexes perfectly." One thing seems certain: when it comes to its preferred type of park riding, the Theme ironically doesn't have one. It wants to do it all. This is an ideal board for the indecisive and environmentally concerned freestyler.
