Eco-friendly is the name of the game with the new Salomon Grip Wide Snowboard. Not only is this board packed with features like EQ5, Popster and ABC sandwich the Grip Wide board is also environmentally proactive.

Whether you like mobbin' down groomers or face shots of powder in the trees, this board will feel right at home out in nature.
Pow Rocker Flat profile between the feet for stability with ample rocker at tip and tail for max floatation
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) 5, a medium flex for a balance of playfulness and performance

Sintered EG Sintered base material for superior glide and wax retention, Gallium for impact resistance, and an Electra finish for maximum speed
Medium Stone Finish A medium structure finish that improves our fast sintered base glide. Quicker in all snow conditions, from cold morning corduroy to spring slush.
Freestyle Edge Bevel Detuning the tip and tail to a 2 degree holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut, then back to a 3 degree bevel between the feet. This delivers the complete blend of edge hold and park shred.
G.I.F.T. The GIFT Project is a new construction process from Salomon which reduces the environmental impact of building a snowboard. Salomon has done away with layers of fibreglass and petroleum based resins and has replaced them with locally sourced structural bamboo sheets. Additionally, bamboo replaces the ABS sidewalls used on traditional board construction. The GIFT project results in a 20% reduction of petroleum based materials, 25% reduction of non-renewable materials and a 10% reduction in board weight.

Comments about Salomon Grip Wide Snowboard 2013:
Fun soft board. Forgiving park board, easy to butter and very fun on the boxes. Can hold its own on the freeride side but will be a bit less stable for the bigger rider. If you enjoy a softer board for all types of riding.......this is your board.
