Gigi Rüf, Austrian pow wizard, is back with his pro model, the Slash
ATV Snowboard. Loaded with traditional camber and Reactive Flex, the ATV is primed for hard charging all over the mountain. Made with a Swiss Wood Core, you're sure to get great pop and responsiveness so no matter what the snow conditions are, you'll be able to rip. Combine that with the Ultimate Traction Bumps, even the sketchiest conditions will be manageable as your edges will grip to anything. Make this winter legendary with the Slash
Camber - The traditional snowboard profile used since the beginning of snowboarding. The camber profile is designed to distribute weight evenly and increase pop. It will give you a really precise snowboard with a snappy, reactive feel.
Responsive - A mid-stiff board that will give you the precision needed to excel in any snow conditions
Reactive Flex - The most advanced board technology available today! A composition of two unique fiberglass lay ups in combination with Slash's new lightweight wood cores that are specifically assembled and profiled by Slash engineers in Switzerland. Reactive flex gives the board the ability to also flex across the width. So, however you bend the board it will react in the best way possible. For example, if you jump on a park rail for a boardslide, the board's edges lift up, creating a convex base which minimizes your chance of catching an edge. The board edges flex downward, creating a concave base which makes your edge bite more into the turns. This is automated flex in 3D!
Twin - Designed with freestylers in mind, the nose and tip have exactly the same dimensions and the stance is centered, so the board performs equally well regardless of your direction. Built to allows riders to jib, spin, stomp and butter, it not only gives you the pop you need, but the pop you want. Regular or switch, it doesn't matter, it's all the same.
Forever Wood - Combining four different lightweight wood species: paulownia, spruce, beech, and poplar to create a premium wood core that reduces weight while increasing reactivity, pop, and longevity in extreme conditions. Slash only uses European FSC wood species assembled and profiled in Slash's own Swiss woodshop to get the best precision in conjunction with the Reactive Flex Technology.
Buried Treasure - This is Slash's ultimate combination of carbon, Kevlar, and basalt fibers developed to increasingly benefit all the aspects of your board. The results: lightness because the connection strength of fiber allows Slash to slim the cores thickness, and added reactivity to the board because of the strategical placement of these fibers.
Base 9900 - Racing-9900, the fastest and most dense sintered base on the market today. It also provides the most impact-resistant surface available. This performance base will allow you to lead the pack wherever you are headed. Its high-density molecular structure holds wax longer.
Diamond Stone Finish - Diamond-structured stone grinding is the best possible base finish. The grinding occurs on two axes to maximize glide and to optimize the durability of the base. It eliminates the slow, suction feel that come with one dimensional base finishes. This is just an extra step Slash takes to ensure your board performs.
Ultimate Traction - A small counter radius (bump) placed in the middle of the board's sidecut. By positioning this bump instead of using a traditional sidecut, Slash has improved edge hold and center stability by not solely relying on the board's outside contact points. You will have more control of your board especially on ice, less fatigue turning the board and lots more fun!
Edges - Slash edges have 35% more steel than stock edges from other companies. They are quite simply stronger and more durable than the alternatives. They feel substantial and will take a beating.
Kick Stand - Slash's identity shape saves material and weight but also stands up without tipping over like rounded boards do!
Tip Protectors - Thin and light, but surprisingly strong, aluminum protectors on the tail and/or nose protect the board from damage that can result from impacts. This small detail makes a big difference for the durability of the deck, especially if your repertoire is more park/urban focused.
