David Benedek redefined the sport of snowboarding on the Salomon
Official Snowboard. While David’s out creating his new book and keeping his legend status clean, the Official Snowboard continues to progress too. Popster ollie power and a super light Alien Light core are two technologies that make the Official Snowboard a TWS Good Wood winner for the 3rd year in a row.
Hook Free Mustache: raised contact points make turn initiation easy for catch free spins and all-terrain riding
Flex Rating: 3 (1 Soft – 5 Stiff) This park board for the freestyle rider features a medium 3 flex with a Directional Twin Shape that combines the freestyle freedom of a twin with the high-speed drive of a directional flex.
Construction and Core
The Salomon Official Snowboard features the Alien Light Core, which uses hand-selected lightwood and Isocell strips to reach the pinnacle of core lightness and consistent flex with high quality wood for dampening and strength where you need it, and air (isocell) where you don’t.
Popster shaped core profile maximizes the natural snap and powerful pop of wood for ollie power.
BA Medium Density fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level for a light and lively board.
Equalizer Sidecut uses three straight lines to evenly distribute the pressure between your feet and edges for easy access edge hold with a board that doesn’t wash out.
Sidewalls, Edges and Base
Rubber Rails provide soft 2mm rubber that cuddles up to the stainless steel edges to keep your ride smooth and chatter free.
EG Sintered base provides superior wax retention, Gallium strengthens impact resistance, and the Electra finish gives a turbocharged glide. The Medium Stone Grind gives you even more speed in all snow conditions, from cold morning corduroy to spring slush.
Full Edge Bevel+: the tip and tail are tuned to a 2 degree edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut and back to a 4 degree bevel between the feet. This delivers the complete blend of edge hold and park shred.
