The Niche Hawthorne is a new addition to the lineup that is building off of the great reputation of the Maelstrom. The Hawthorne is a slightly softer version of the big brother Maelstrom. With a camber dominant profile and a slightly rockered nose, this board is setup to be a great all-mountain performer. Camber holds on tight during groomed carves, and stays stable through chopped up snow, while the rockered nose helps with turn initiation, and provides additional float in powder. The Hawthorne features a small bit of taper to help keep the board locked into the fall line as well as to aid in sinking the tail for deep snow conditions. Last but not least, all NICHE boards are made using a zero-waste process.
