Why we chose the Salomon Gypsy Snowboard: FUN. FUN. FUN.
For many female rippers out there, the Salomon Gypsy is a modern classic; a board where you know exactly what you’re going to get as soon as you strap into it. Year after year, the Gypsy keeps on getting the ladies stoked on riding and so it feels only natural for it to be included in the Whitelines 100.
“However, it still mainly holds a camber profile, which allows plenty of pop and stability, making turns feels effortless, so you’re able to move quick and easy through any kind of snow”
This is first and foremost a park board. However, the camrock profile, or rock out camber as Salomon likes to call it, makes the Gypsy a very versatile board. It’s flat in between the feet, and thus ideal for rails, while the small rocker parts at each end makes it ideal for pressing out on boxes. However, it still mainly holds a camber profile, which allows plenty of pop and stability, making turns feels effortless. The bottom line: you’re able to move quick and easy through any kind of snow on it.
Not only does the profile of the board help to make it the manoeuvrable maniac that it is, the Popster Booster core also plays a big part in it too. This core provides plenty of pop, whilst ensuring dampened landings. Thanks to the sintered base, the Gypsy is also fast – meaning it’s unlikely you’ll be the last one to hit the après. And some say you can’t have it all…
