  • Flax stringers add pop and stability to your ride while efficiently transferring energy throughout the board to minimize chatter
  • Snappy Sap Bio-Resin, made from the recyclables of the paper pulp and bio-fuel industry, is lighter, stronger and greener than commonly used harmful toxic resins and epoxies
  • Utilizing Snappy Sap Bio-Resin eats board chatter while transferring energy more efficiently than traditional resins, giving your board a smooth ride
  • Digi-print topsheet gives your board a stunning graphic with a flawless, laquer-free, matte finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All terrain shred stick This board has an awesome skateboard feeling on the groomers Andis super surfy feeling on Powder days. It's just an all-terrain vehicle. With super good Ollie pop and butters like a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All mountain and park killer My board of choice for 3 years. Responsive turning, pop, and the best flat camber board out there. Lightest board I have ridden and even lighter with my Union Contact Pro bindings. Bottom line skate feel in the park and rips the rest of the mountain like a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around board. I don't get into the technical side of board design. I just need stability on fast groomers, good pop, and something that floats in the pow. This is the best do it all board I have ridden in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Board Definitely not like every other board on the mountain. This one responds so perfectly that I can just zen out and ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck on the market! I used to think that the capita DOA was the best bang for your buck but the Niche Knew has blown that board and many i've owned that cost far more out of the water! The Knew turns on a dime. The nimble light weight feel of this board makes it ideal for freestyle riding. The flat profile with the perfect balance of flex and support make this board easy enough to press while still being supportive enough to ride away on even the sketchiest side hits. The Knew is just as comfortable riding powder as it is in the park. The blunt tip rises right above soft snow. The two traction bumps under your feet grip on icy conditions and help the board absolutely rail turns with out ever being noticed while sliding a box or rail. before you even think about the fact that it's the most environmentally friendly board out there the Knew is all ready a rockstar. SO Happy with this purchase.

I have a size 12 boot, now I know this board isn't wide/mid-wide, however the waist width seems larger than most. would this board be compatible with me?

Asked by: Coby Kai
This board should accommodate your size 12 boot with minimal toe drag. The width of this board is very close to boards that are actual wide widths.
