Slash Straight Snowboard 2014

Gigi is a pow master and everyone knows it. That's why he reaches for the Slash STRAiGHT for those days when it is really dumping. With Backseat CamRock combined with a slightly stiffer tail and a setback stance, this freeride board delivers the goods. Newly added is the Landing Strip fiber to reduce high velocity chatter while the Forever Wood core makes the STRAiGHT incredibly light. Ride like the crazy Austrian himself with the Slash STRAiGHT Snowboard.
Rocker Type
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.
 
Flex
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!
Shape
Directional - Made for freeriding and powder days, this directional shape will make your board slice through anything and increase floatation.
Slick Tip Profile - By reducing the wood and fiberglass in the nose and replacing it with a denser wood core, Slick Tip technology allows Slash to significantly lighten the board while increasing strength and durability. The Slick Tip also dampens vibrations and provides a unique, light feel in turn transitions due to its reduced thickness and profile.
Core
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.
Laminates
Landing Strip - 2 strips of bacon flavored Kevlar and Carbon placed from the tail to the inserts and from the nose to the tip of the inserts. This will reduce high velocity quivers.
Base
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.
Edges
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.
Additional Features
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
    Powder
    Powder snowboards love powder. Often associated with freeride snowboards, powder boards sometimes feature a wider nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts, which determine the rider's stance, are often set back on a powder snowboard to help the rider float the tip of the board through the deep stuff. Powder snowboards sometimes also feature rocker, a design element where the tip (and tail) rise starts farther back on the board, which also helps the rider maintain tip float through the pow.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker shapes seek to give you both hard-carving edgehold on firm snow from camber underfoot with enhanced turnability and float in powder from the rockered tip and tail. This profile is increasingly popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
