Why We Chose The Salomon Scarlet: A highly agreeable entry-level option that has the long game firmly in its sights.
Getting the right pair of boots is never more important than it is at the start of your snowboarding journey. First and foremost you need something that will keep you warm and dry, but that will also follow your commands as you progress. It can feel like quite a lot of outlay so early on, and getting it wrong could hinder your chances of reaching the next level. Take it from us, though; the Salomon Scarlet will slash your chances of experiencing buyer’s remorse.
“This offers a softer flex on the whole, making it easy to manipulate at low speeds and in those first sessions where every subtle movement counts”
There is a choice of lacing systems available; a convenient speed-lace (and Salomon’s is one of the best in the game), and an even-more-convenient Boa wire with a single dial on the tongue. The latter is slightly pricier, mind.
Who Are The Salomon Scarlet For?
This model is a terrific option for the rider that wants a softer flex and minimal faff. Yes, it’s far short of Salomon’s peak-chasing premium boots, but variety is the spice of life. Matched to the right feet, these are bona fide mood-enhancers.
