    Comments about Salomon Ace Wide Snowboard 2012:

    I just bought this board to replace my 2009 Salomon Ace. This board is much improved from the 2009. The graphics are amazing, and it's a great board for the price. Can be ridden as a twin instead of twin directional by moving either your lead or back binding forward. If you like the feel of traditional cambers this is the board for you.

        I just ordered this right at the end of the season so I only got to ride it once, it felt great though. It was definitely a huge upgrade from my last snowboard, which was a piece of junk. Glad I bought it

          Comments about Salomon Ace Wide Snowboard 2012:

          I use this board to ride all over (mostly blue runs) a mountain. I've noticed a definite increase in speed and turning ability versus my last board. I have my bindings set to be equa-distant from the tips, giving me a 'true-twin' ride which I prefer.
          I'm not expert on boards, but I only have good things to say about this one coming from my very old board to this one.
