Salomon Super 8 Snowboard

Salomon Super 8 Snowboard – 2018

MSRP: $449.95

Few riders have mastered the art of carving like Josh Dirksen and Wolle Nyvelt. In Salomon’s latest partnership with James brand pocketknives, they’ve channeled precision carving in an all mountain board that harnesses control and speed. They call it: the Salomon Super 8 Snowboard.

The Salomon Super 8 Snowboard is all-mountain, tapered, and has a directional camber. A slightly wider nose sets course for a decisive and powerful tail. You can charge steeps with confidence and take that same stability off the beaten path, tapping into its playful side. With authoritative edge control to navigate Pacific North West wind lips, this board isn’t designed to be your first but might be your last.

An iconic element of this board is Salomon’s Backseat Camber. Blending this perfectly with their Quadratic sidecut and Rocket Science tip and tail, you have a mid-wide board that feels smaller than it is. It holds onto that surface area to keep you stable and floaty but leaves behind the lag of a larger board.

You’ll notice how the Super 8 is nimble enough to dip into tight trees with the power and stability to catch you when you blast back onto the run. The Backseat Camber concentrates control under your back foot, so when things get steep and you need to throw in a jump turn, you can rely on a strong edge beneath you.

Moving towards the front of the board, the camber mellows out into a flat zone. Catch air in the deep stuff knowing you’ll float, thanks to the flat camber in your nose that props you up. The unique angles in the sidecut mixed with a tapered profile make initiating turns a breeze. Effortlessly change directions on any day while you link turns and keep a fluid style edge to edge. These are those perfect turns that snap you into the next, bringing energy to your riding while keeping life in your legs.

With an overall wider deck, there’s no doubt you’ll be able to carry speed with confidence with the Salomon Super 8 underfoot. This, mixed with Rocket Science tech that adds rocker to your tip and tail, unlocks a playful feel to initiate slashes whenever you want. Speed and maneuverability combine for some explosive riding, so you can get off the chair and cruise with style before unleashing the Super 8’s full potential with power and control in your favorite zone.

Salomon’s Super 8 is for the intermediate to expert rider viewing the mountain as a canvas, ready to brush with power, control, and style.
