They say: Less Effort, More Power
We say: An all-rounder aimed slightly more at the piste carver than the park rat, this benefits from a light core construction and a fast base. Poppy and responsive, this will work well on kickers, but less well on rails.
Tester says: Turned really easily for a stiff stick and holds an edge really well.

- Building boards since: 1997
- HQ: Annecy, France
- History lesson: The father and son team Francois and Georges Salomon founded the brand that bears their name in 1947. Although it started out in a small workshop in Annecy, the company soon outgrew these humble origins. By the time it reached its 50th birthday in 1997 – the year it launched its first range of snowboards – it was one of the world’s biggest ski makers. Perhaps predictably then, its boards met with a lukewarm reception from the hardcore of the scene. This didn’t deter Salomon however, and it kept investing in the sport. In the end its attentiveness paid off when snowboarders realised that Salomon’s boards were simply too good to ignore any more.
- Ridden by: Sensible shredders who like a decent amount of tech in their sticks without compromising too much on style.
