Product Info

The Salomon Super 8 Snowboard is a freeride, powder, and groomer ripper for the rider in search of a deck with a little extra float and power. A setback stance shifts the riding position rearward for better nose lift when surfing through the soft stuff, which you'll appreciate when the forecast calls for sweet, sweet pow. C/FX Basalt reinforcement aids in rigidity and response for outstanding edge control at high speeds, while a premium sintered base with a fine stone finish helps to make your speed dreams a reality. The collaboration with North Drinkware celebrates Josh Dirksen’s home, Mt. Bachelor, with detailed USGS data of the mountain on the top sheet and the cinder cone on the base.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Backseat CamberCamber under your back foot and a flat section at the nose, coupled with rocker at the tip and tail lends you maximum control for carving on groomers and a surf-like feel in powder.

Flex

Responsive FlexA stiffer flex helps connect you with your board. It's stiffness allows for quicker turns, easier edge hold and impressive stability at speed.

Shape

Tapered DirectionalThe tail width is slightly tapered (10-15 mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves flotation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.

Rocket ScienceA slightly wider design for more maneuverable and stable boards.

Quadratic SidecutA blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions.

Core

Aspen Select CoreEvery single FSC certified wood strip is hand selected to ensure unparalleled core quality and lightness.

PopsterMaximize the natural snap and powerful pop of wood with Popster's shaped core profile. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.

Laminates

C/FX Basalt

Biax MDMedium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.

Sidewalls

ABS SidewallsSalomon's Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a mouthful, so Salomon calls it ABS, the best material for sidewalls. The molecular structure can be described as a concrete bar with rubber nuggets inside, combining toughness for energy transfer and dampening properties for impact absorption.

Base

SinteredEngineered for super fast glide in everything from fresh pow to sticky spring snow. Sintered material provides superior wax retention, Gallium strengthens impact resistance, and the Electra finish gives a turbocharged glide.

Fine Stone FinishSpeed up in powder or softer snow conditions.

Edges

All-Mountain Edge Bevel A 1° edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut meets a 2° bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
