Diversify your bag of tricks with the Salomon Drift Snowboard 2008. Forget all your regular excuses—with the maximum dampening of the Royal Rubber, the Salomon Drift is the ideal board for stepping it up in the park, or anywhere on the mountain. The new confidence-building Equalizer sidecut will turn switch-riding into child’s play, so you can focus on stomping your latest challenge. With the freestyle Salomon Drift Snowboard you can tackle anything from your first 180 to a back flip on the park’s biggest rail.
Equalizer Board Technology — By combining a sidecut made from three straight lines and the ultimate impact and vibration dampening construction, Equalizer brings control and optimal comfort to the rider. It took Salomon 2 years of development and many on-hill edge pressure measurement sessions to achieve this groundbreaking board feel. The result is greater control delivered by intelligent pressure distribution for uninterrupted snow contact. Perfect Twin Shape — You can ride switch or regular; the twin shape gives you more balance to execute spine and butter tricks with ease, style and fun.
Royal Rubber — These soft rubber blocks, inserted into Salomon’s ABS Sidewalls in the high pressure zones, smooth out the edge contact like no other construction, whatever the conditions. Equalizer Sidecut — How can a sidecut made from straight lines ride better? Salomon’s newly-patented Equalizer sidecut will deliver an unprecedented control on your board trajectories by distributing the pressure along the edge and giving more power to your feet. This constant extended edge contact generates smooth but undefeatable traction, even on concrete-hard runs. You’ll never feel beaten by your board again.
Aspen Wood Light — An advanced version of the Aspen Strong core. Lighter and more responsive, this core brings together all of Salomon’s technologies to give you more power, control and snap when you ride. P-Tex 1900 Electra — The perfect blend of durability and performance with a medium structure for max glide in all types of snow.
Standard Stone Finish — Optimized extruded base structure for any snow condition. Bi-Axial Medium Density Fibers — Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a constant quality level while making the boards light and lively.
ENK (Elliptic Nose Kick) Tip Shape — Elliptic Nose Kick is the perfect shape for backcountry freestyle, as the shove-shaped tips naturally avoid powder hang-ups with no additional tip length or weight. Full Edge Bevel + — Edge de-tuning angle is increased in the high pressure zones, while it’s kept just right for a solid edge hold.
