Additional Features

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 Sickstick Snowboard 2013:

I've been switching between all mountain and freeride boards since moving out to the NW from the East Coast. I got to demo this board (156cm) on a semi-powder day. It 's been the best of both worlds. It floats as good as a rocker or longer board, maybe not as deep conditions as my Fish 156, but it's good enough and has the surfy feel. No problem on groomers unless you are spoiled with magnetraction. The sidecut is tighter- not really for big long carves. Still, it's suitable for anyone who wants a board that is good at everything but not excellent in one type of riding.

The twin shape does it make it easier for a freestyle approach. It rides def shorter than the spec length (i'm 5'7 and 165lbs). I could've gone up to the 160, but the waist width was slightly more than i wanted on my 9.0 boots. So, it's a tad stiff for the park boxes and rails (Powder Snake would be better). I think it could have a slight more camber for pop, but that'll probably take off on the great edge hold.

This board is ideal, if you are looking to consolidate your collection with a freestyle board that can handle most groomers, steeps and powder.

      Excellent board, forgiven but responsive and fast. Surfy, stable and playful; awesome nollie combined with solid switch riding open doors for tricks and buttering. A super powder deck! I can't see myself without a sickstick in my quiver.

        I liked the board on groomers because you can get to high speeds. It isn't the best for moguls,don't intend on taking it on moguls, floats above powder nicely and this is maybe the best pow board I know of.

        Comments about Salomon Sickstick Snowboard 2013:

        I had a blast on the sick stick... I loved the bamboo flex. This is a deck that can do everthing on the hill, though its main quest in life is to destroy pow. The deck is flat with a pointed tip and trail. I want to spend some more time on this deck. I would ride a bigger size for the pow(im 5'10')
