Since the beginning of Gigi Rüf's career, he has always put his two cents into constructing boards. He has finally teamed up with Nidecker to produce his own line of boards: Slash Snowboards. The Slash STRAiGHT Snowboard is the perfect flagship board for his new line. Featuring CamRock technology and a Directional shape, this board offers plenty of strength for rippin' the side (and back) country all day long. Ride like the crazy Austrian himself with the Slash STRAiGHT Snowboard.
Backseat CamRock Backseat CamRock gives you everything you need to slay your backcountry line. There is a touch more rocker in the nose to add float and improved maneuverability, matched with a small set-back camber between the bindings to keep your snowboard responsive.
Responsive A very stiff board that will give you precision you need to excel in any snow conditions
Directional Made for freeriding and powder days, this directional shape will make your board slice through anything and increase floatation.
Linseed Fiber An eco-friendly laminate that is stronger than standard multi-axial fiberglass and allows for a damper, more responsive ride
Sintered Base Fastest, most durable base available due to high-density carbon molecular structure
Diamond Finish Gives the base a superb finish that is perfect for absorbing wax
Ultimate Traction Bumps 5 strategically placed bumps built into the board's effective edges increases edge hold without increasing drag or sacrificing speed.
35% more steel than typical edges, which means they have two and half times the impact resistance of other edges on the market
Designed by Fabiana
Setback Stance The setback stance will help you ride in powder (helps keep the nose up) and makes it easier to turn and carve in most mountain conditions.
