Salomon Villain, Assassin and Ultimate Ride Snowboards 2016-2017
The Salomon Villain is the brain child of urban destroyer Louif Paradis, featuring artwork from Dave Banks. With a flat section between the bindings, camber under the inserts and rocker out towards the nose and tail, this board has the perfect balance of flex and response.
The Salomon Assassin for 2016-2017 is his master’s board. That master is Wolle Nyvelt. A cross between Salomon’s most progressive powder and freestyle board constructions. The Assassin built with an arsenal of technology for destroying anything in it’s path and when Wolle is strapped in, he takes no prisoners.
Last but by no means least is the new Ultimate Ride. The name says it all. This one is built to handle everything the snowboarding world has ever discovered. From Alaskan spines to the humble streets and everything in between, this board is a truly one-of-kind quiver killer designed by Bode Merrill.
Salomon Craft, Salomonder and Huck Knife Snowboards 2016-2017
The Salomon Craft is the perfect board for all your freestyle needs as you venture further into the backcountry. The board of choice for Nils Mindnich is equipped with rock out camber to give you great edge control with easy presses.
The Salomonder continues it’s evolution into two separate board shapes for the second year, it looks like Jed and Chris aren’t as aligned as they once used to be when it comes down to their choice of jib stick. Jed’s pro model runs with a blunter nose and tail in a 148 or 154 length, while Chris keeps his Slash-esque shape for super fast spin weight and jibbery in the 145, 151 and 156 lengths. This was always a classic, now it’s double classic.
