Why we chose the Salomon No Drama Snowboard: After the insane reviews it got from our Test Team, there’d be bloody murder if we didn’t.
Brand new for this season the Salomon No Drama is set to take women’s freestyle riding up a notch. Taking inspiration from Salomon’s award winning Huck Knife, the No Drama is a dynamic and lively snowboard that packs one hell of a punch. In the music industry Madonna is known ubiquitously as the Queen of Pop, in the snowboard industry The No Drama is garnering that name for itself. One has won the Whitelines Choice award for ‘Best Newcomer’, and the other has been excommunicated from the Catholic Church. Stay tuned to find out which is which…
The Salomon No Drama is an ideal board for the unapologetic park rat. The true twin shape, energetic profile and robust construction tick all the classic boxes for a freestyle snowboard. It’s definitely more of a beefy option for an experienced and confident rider, think boosting the big kicker line instead of playful flatland butters.
“Whichever way you bite the bullet, be it switch landings or in runs, you’ll be glad for the centred stance when you’re trying to keep it stylish”
The profile boasts a strong positive camber section up to the contact points, with a smidgen of rocker outside to ease up the ride slightly. Camber is the de facto profile of choice for those who prioritise a lively and dynamic ride. This powerful midbody functions as a springboard and allows you to load up the board for explosive ollies. It’s less work when you’re popping off a lip or onto a rail, and delivers that high performance power you can see so clearly in the Huck Knife. While the camber is responsible for your dynamic movements, the small rocker zones help to create a more catch-free ride and mellow out your scuffed landings a little.
As with most boards built for total park destruction, the No Drama employs a true twin outline. Your weight stays centred over the middle of the board to give you optimum balance while you’re airborne. Whichever way you bite the bullet, be it switch landings or in runs, you’ll be glad for the centred stance when you’re trying to keep it stylish.
