If Salomon s Sick Stick and Official made a crazy, hybrid snowboard baby, they would produce the Salomon Grip Snowboard, a pow board that handles crud, rails and jumps like it’s no big deal and gives you plenty of stability and performance in the park. Time to grip it and rip it.
Flex Rating: 3 (1 Soft – 5 Stiff) This park board for the freestyle rider features a medium flex rating of 3 with a true twin shape that’s freestyle specific with symmetrical core profiling, flex and a centered binding stance.
Construction and Core
The Salomon Grip Snowboard has features a Select core with a Popster Core Profile that harnesses that power of the wood’s natural snap and pop for more air time and bigger ollies. BA Medium Density fiberglass layers also guarantee a consistent quality level for a light and lively board, with bamboo laminates that make the board extremely strong, yet both flexible and snappy.
The Sintered EG Base is engineered for super fast gliding in everything from fresh pow to sticky spring snow, providing superior wax retention, strengthened impact resistance and a turbocharged glide. The Medium Stone Grind improves the base, increasing speed in all snow conditions.
Sidewalls and Edges
ABC Sandwich construction keeps your ride clean and green, maximizing the natural pop and quality board feel of bamboo as a basic building block, resulting a lighter weight board with 25% less plastic content than traditional board. Royal Rubber rails absorb shock and protect your edges thanks to the 4mm of soft Royal Rubber inserted into the high pressure zones for low stress landings and a smooth ride. The Equalizer sidecut uses three straight lines to evenly distribute the pressure between your feet and edges for easy access edge hold with a board that doesn’t wash out.
