Designed to be ridden 7-10 cm shorter than your normal board, the Salomon
Derby is new for the 2014 lineup. Featuring Pop Rocker profile, Popster shaped core, and Aspen Strong core, the Derby defies the rules of snowboarding. Similar to Salomon
's Powder Snake Snowboard, this mid-wide ride has a medium flex for intermediate riders who prefer a loose, more skate-like feel with a little precision. A Tapered Directional shape loosens up turning initiation while providing improved floatation in deeper snow, without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack. The Derby is everything a guy could want for blending tight tree riding with powerful powder descents.
Pow Rocker - Flat profile between the bindings for stability, with added rocker on the tip and tail for playfulness and floatation
Flex Rating: 5 (1 Softest - 10 Stiffest) - A medium flex for intermediate riders who prefer a loose, more skate-like feel with a little precision
Tapered Directional - With a lightly tapered (10-15 mm) tail width, turning initiation is loosened up while providing improved floatation in deeper snow, without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
Quadratic Sidecut - A blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions
Aspen Strong - CNC - selected high-density FSC certified wood strips for the inserts and rail zones result in improved impact resistance and a predictable flex all season long.
Popster - Popster technology maximizes the natural snap and powerful pop of wood with Popster's shaped core profile, creating the feeling like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
BA MD - Medium density European-made fiberglass layers for a guaranteed consistency of quality on light and lively boards.
Royal Rubber Pads - 4 mm Soft Royal Rubber blocks inserted into the high-pressure zones of Salomon's ABS sidewalls for dampening vibrations and mellowing out during the big impacts
Sintered - An industry standard for quality sintered base materials provides a moderate balance between the speed created by a hard surface and good wax retention.
Standard Stone Finish - Salomon's basic stone finish is the industry benchmark for high-end boards.
All Mountain Edge Bevel - Salomon detuned the tip and tail to a 1 degree edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut, and back to a 2 degree bevel between the feet delivering a solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
