Salomon Sight Snowboard 2022-2023
PRICE: £335 / $380
Drawing inspiration from the new Salomon Highpath, the redesigned Sight is a genuinely good choice for those who are balling on more of a budget, or looking to take their first dip into the endless pool of freeride snowboarding.
The flex and profile tend towards a mellow option for either more inexperienced riders, or those who prefer to make surfy turns rather than threading the needle down super gnarly turf. It’s an adaptable snowboard that takes some really clever Salomon tech and tones it down into an affordable and attainable package. And all for less than 400 bucks, what a bargain.
Who Is The Salomon Sight For?
You’d err towards the freeride side of all-mountain riding and are looking for a budget friendly option to open the doors for you. Despite taking inspiration from some heavy hitters, the Sight’s easy going flex and mellow ingredient list earmark it as one that can be used by everybody; from novices all the way to pros.
Salomon Assassin Snowboard 2022-2023
No doubt, you’ll have owned an Assassin at some point – or at least one of your mates will have. It’s a long-time favourite with seasonaires and industry folk alike. With its directional twin shape, medium flex, and rock-out camber, this all-mountain board cruises over any terrain – from icy groomers to deep pow. The wider nose gives that extra float off-piste, while the rock-out camber provides better stability underfoot. If that wasn’t enough, the high-tech sidecut promises maximum grip and control when carving. A quiver killer? Quite possibly, especially when you see this board’s potential while hooning through the park or just gunning it back to resort for après.
Salomon Dancehaul Snowboard 2022-2023
Turn up the tempo with this fluoro-yellow unisex board from Salomon. You can already tell from the shape that the Dancehaul equals fun, an all-mountain deck with bags of personality. Yes, loads of boards nowadays fall under the all-mountain remit, but this one really does tick all the boxes. Not only does it ride like a high-speed carver, but it’s also got the pop of a freestyle board underfoot. When it comes to bombing through powder, the tapered tail and fat nose provide extra float. If you’re looking to spice up the same ol’ runs, then it’s worth taking the Dancehaul for a spin.
Salomon Huck Knife Snowboard 2022-2023
A true park board, the Huck Knife does what it says on the tin. It’s made for hucking off big kickers and slicing through air, and snow, as you put down a steezy three. Prepare yourself for a slightly easier ride with the Huck Knife compared to the Pro. The medium flex, carbon stringers aggressive camber profile mean this board is loaded with explosive pop, as well as plenty of stability for jibbing around the park. If you’re an intermediate to advanced freestyle rider, looking to expand your trick book, then take a closer look at the Huck Knife.
