The Salomon Assassin Pro is the top of the range big brother to the Salomon Assassin. If you’re looking for high performance and money is no barrier, then this dark destroyer might just be for you. On initial inspection of the Assassin and the Pro, they have the same versatile directional twin shape and Rock Out Camber profile. However, most of the differences lie within the internal board construction, Salomon have really souped-up this model to justify the price difference.
The Assassin Pro is flat between the feet aiding with stability, slight camber directly under the feet for quick response with rocker at the tip and tail for pressability and playfulness. The early rise tip and tail will keep your board floating on top during those deep days and aid with smooth turn initiation.

The lightness combined with this board’s stiffness means it packs a hefty punch. If you’re willing to put in the work, then it will most certainly give the performance out. A high end Sintered EG base, combined with Salomon’s Quadrilizer Sidecut will keep you tipping and gripping on piste and firmly at the front of the pack.
Salomon have come through with all the bells and whistles on the Assassin Pro, utilising their premium technologies to make sure there’s no compromise on performance. Two carbon beams are inserted into the tip and tail, boosting power from the inserts when you’re popping off kickers or sidehits. Gunslinger Sidewalls run the length of the board, two carbon inlays which will provide the rider with increased stability when carving at high speeds and soak up some of the chatter as you’re tackling varied terrain.

The result is a light and nimble board with plenty of power for fast edge to edge transitions and lightning fast responsiveness. The Assassin Pro is adaptable and ready to take on whatever the season throws your way. This board would suit intermediate to advanced freestyle riders who like a challenge in the park but are looking for a board that is responsive and stable to rip up the whole mountain.
