Why we chose the Salomon Assassin Pro Snowboard: A board which more than lives up to its big all-mountain claim.
Introducing the premium version of the all-mountain ace, the Salomon Assassin, it’s the Assassin Pro. This is truly a weapon. To the untrained eye, there might be not much to distinguish between the two Assassins but the Pro is the beefy meathead brother. Its place in the Whitelines 100 is well deserved.
“Paulownia is one of the newer woods used for snowboard manufacturing, and one of its signature traits is that it is light yet strong”
Just like its namesake, the Assassin Pro also carries a camrock profile, directional twin shape and quadralized side cuts. What tells these two apart, in the main, is the core.
The Assassin Pro’s core is made out of lightweight paulownia, a core type that Salomon likes to call the Ghost Green Core. Paulownia is one of the newer woods used for snowboard manufacturing, and one of its signature traits is that it is light yet strong.
