Why we chose the Salomon Speedway Snowboard: Hard charging, rip roaring mountain killer .
New to the Salomon range last year, we’ve got the pleasure to welcome back the Salomon Speedway for its second season. Remaining true to its name, the Speedway is the Speedy Gonzales of the snowboard world – a “blink and you’ll miss it” stick that can blast through anything.
“Salomon’s rocketlike sintered base combined with the stiff flex gives the Speedway all the speed you’ll need from a board”
As Salomon puts it, this board is for the modern downhill charger (and we see no reason to disagree). Salomon’s rocketlike sintered base combined with the stiff flex gives the Speedway all the speed you’d ever need from a board. The directional shape combined with the setback camber, meanwhile, gives the board tremendous control and power whether you’re straight-lining or carving.
With camber under the backfoot, you’ll find that the board has good grip on the piste, whilst the flat nose makes for smooth turns. The setback camber profile plays its part in the turns too – making it easier to get a turn in whether you’re aiming for a perfect euro-carve on fresh groomers or you’re out in the wild blasting through the deep stuff.
