Product Details

Rocker Type

Cross ProfileSalomon's Cross Profile consists of camber between the feet for better control, pop, and landing stability and Rocker on the tip and tail for effortless flotation both forward and switch.

Flex

Flex Rating: 7 (1 Softest - 10 Stiffest)A stiff flex for intermediate to advanced riders looking for more precision control at high speeds, whether it be in the park, pipe, or anywhere on the hill

Shape

Directional TwinA twin shape for all freestyle terrain, with a directional flex for power at high-speed and a stance that is slightly set back

Quadratic SidecutA blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions

Core

Ghost GreenTo build this light and poppy core, Salomon mixed their best wood strips with some carefully selected sustainable light wood.

PopsterPopster 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.

Laminates

BA MDMedium density European-made fiberglass layers for a guaranteed consistency of quality on light and lively boards.

GHOST Basalt StringersBasalt stringers are sewn into a triax layer for durable pop, control, and a damp ride at high speeds and aids in easy maneuverability when you're keeping it mellow.

Sidewalls

ABC Green RollThe snap of bamboo, the comfortable ride of cork sidewalls, and the bombproof strength of basalt - ABC Green Roll (Advanced Bamboo Construction) blends natural materials into a supernatural snowboard for more pop and less plastic.

Base

Sintered EGSalomon has engineered this base for a super fast glide on everything from fresh pow to sticky spring snow. A sintered base material provides superior wax retention while Gallium strengthens impact resistance and the Electra finish gives a turbo-charged glide.

Fine Stone FinishSalomon's fine stone finish is particularly efficient on their Sintered EG base - hit the gas in powder or softer snow conditions.

Edges

All Mountain Edge BevelSalomon 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.

Royal Cork RailsProtect the planet and your edges with this eco version of Royal Rubber. Royal Rubber Rails protect your edges from blowouts with a thicker and softer rubber that absorbs impacts and reduces chatter while you ride.

Comments about Salomon Man's Board Snowboard 2014:

It does everything as described: fast, stable, carves great, has a lot of pop and floats in powder. Not for a beginer, not for someone week in legs, because turn initiation is quite challenging. And make sure, that your boots and bindings are on the stiffer side, tt was some kind of a nightmare with soft boots and bindings. There are many more versatile boards on the market (salomon sabotage for example), but they won't be as fast and stable on high speeds, because all drawbacks of The man's board comes from it's stiffness.

this board is fast,damp,snappy with tons of pop. It responds instantly so you should be a competent rider or you will just be along for the ride. The faster you go the more stable the board gets. So commit and go. lots of fun though,favorite board right now.
