Why we chose the Salomon Bellevue Snowboard: Not only is the Bellevue a behemoth in the powder and railing carves, but it’s also one of the best looking boards this season with some amazing Tom Hegen photography featured on the topsheet.
Tom likes to highlight the links between people and nature in his work and boy do we want to rip this board out in the wild. Bellevue indeed.
Picture the day; it’s a midweek morning, you’re off work and you’ve woken up to reports of 40+inches of fresh powder overnight onto a reliable base layer. School holidays are nowhere in sight so those big, open faces are free from holiday makers and all yours. In your mind’s eye are you going slowly down the nursery slope?
No, you’re chucking the biggest, longest turns spraying snow as far as humanly possible on the steepest deepest faces at full speed. You’re probably going to want a board that makes that feel easy too aren’t you? And it would be a bonus if it looked good doing it right? Enter the Salomon Bellevue.
“But for any intermediate or above rider that’s looking to enjoy some carves and slashy powder turns then this is a great choice”
Who Is The Salomon Bellevue For?
Probably not the best option for an absolute beginner due to its stiff flex, setback style and backseat camber profile. But for any intermediate or above rider that’s looking to enjoy some carves and slashy powder turns then this is a great choice.
