Salomon Speedway 2021
Do you have the need? The need for hard-charging downhill speed? The Salomon Speedway Snowboard is a directional cambered deck with a setback riding position and C/FX Superfiber reinforcement. What all that means is that you've got power, precision, float, and stability all at the same time in a light and nimble construction. Blast your way through chop, hold your edge with confidence, and get after it like you're at an open track day. The Salomon Speedway Snowboard is like a nitrous boost for your riding, or at least for your ego.
Backseat Camber – Camber 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.
Responsive Flex – A stiffer flex helps connect you with your board. It's stiffness allows for quicker turns, easier edge hold and impressive stability at speed.
Quadratic Sidecut – A blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions.
Tapered Directional – The 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.
Ghost Green Core – The Ghost Green core components have been selected to optimize pop and reduce weight with super light paulownia wood.
Popster – Maximize the natural snap and powerful pop of wood with Popster's shaped core profile. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
Biax MD – Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
ABS Sidewalls – Salomon'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.
Sintered EG – Engineered for a 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 Finish – Speed up in powder or softer snow conditions.
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.
