The Salomon Pillow Talk women’s snowboard has been around for a while, but much like the Salomon Sick Stick it received a recent reboot. Style-master Wolle Nyvelt got his hands on it and completely upheaved it as part of his Hillside Collection, and the results are spectacular.
The Salomon Pillow Talk is available in two sizes, each of which has its own shape characteristics. The difference in tail design is the first thing you’ll notice, but what’s perhaps less obvious at first glance is that fact that the waist width of the shorter size is actually greater than that of the longer option.

As with the Sick Stick, the right choice of Pillow Talk for you has less to do with your own height, and is more about where you’ll be taking it. For tight turns in the trees, the 145 is ideal, while the 151 favours more all-round riding. Both can be ridden a little downsized, though.
The profile is essentially camber, with rocker sections towards each end. That means there’s plenty of edge on hand when you want grip on piste, but it’s a little more forgiving than a straight-up camber profile.
