Inspired by Dirksen’s authoritative edge control. Whether you’re ripping pow or carving groomers, the wider design with the control under your back foot allows a smooth and precise maneuverability, speed and float. This board belongs in every quiver.

 

BENEFITS

Power – camber under the back foot for explosive turning capabilities.

Carving – Quadratic sidecut blends elliptic curves for easy turn initiation and fluid edge to edge transitions.

Float – flat segments under the front foot for freedom on fun pow days.

TECHNOLOGIES

Profile:   Backseat camber – camber under the back foot for explosive carving capabilities, and flat segments under the front foot for freedom on fun pow days. The best of both worlds, without any unwanted vibration.

Sidecut:    Quadratic – a blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions.

Additives:    C/FX Basalt – take down of the C/FX superfiber. This version of the C/FX is composed of basalt & fiberglass for power and a smooth ride.

 

CONSTRUCTION

Tapered Directional sidecut, wherein the tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves floatation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.

Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.

Damplifier, a cork and ABS insert on nose, helps absorb vibrations for a smoother ride at high speed.

Popster wood core profile with strategically placed variation of thickness. It maximizes the natural snap and powerful pop of wood. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.

Rocket Science for more maneuverable/stable boards: rocker on tip/tail for playfulness.

Quality sintered base materials. Provides a moderate balance between the speed created by a hard surface and good wax retention.

Every single aspen wood strip is hand selected to ensure unparalleled core quality and lightness.

Salomon’s fine stone finish is particularly efficient on their Sintered EG base, allowing you to speed up in powder or softer snow conditions.

From detuning the tip and tail to a 1-degree edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut, back to a 2-degree bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.

4X2 binding inserts

The molecular structure of Salomon’s ABS sidewalls can be described as a concrete bar combining toughness for energy transfer and dampening properties for impact absorption.
