The 2019 Salomon First Call is part of the Salomon Hillside project and has been shaped by snowboarding icon Wolfgang Nyvelt as the freestyle prodigy in his powder-centric designs. Each size has been designed and refined to deliver specific freestyle benefits, from tight creative turns to park riding and big jumps. Along with its head turning shape and retro design, the First Call is optimised for smashing through powder and carving up the groomers, so if you're looking for a powder board that thrives in the park, make this your first call.
Board Type: All Mountain Freestyle / Powder
Camber Type: Rock Out Camber
Traditional Camber throughout the board with a big flat spot between the bindings for added stability, response, and edge hold without feeling aggressive, plus rocker outside the feet to maximise pressability.
Flex: 5/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A mid flex that offers all mountain versatility. Playful when you want it, and stable when you need it.
Shape: Tapered Twin
This board rides like a true twin but has a floatier nose and tapered tail for the performance of a powder board, with the freestyle abilities of a twin.
Quadralizer Sidecut - The Quadralizer sidecut takes Salomons signature straight line Equalizer sidecut and makes it quadratic, which enhances edge grip, agility, and allows you to perform both big arcing carves and tight aggressive turns.
Core: Aspen Select Core
An Aspen wood core with high-density FSC certified wood strips for the inserts and rail zones, resulting in improved impact resistance and a predictable flex all season long.
Popster - A specially shaped core profile gives your ollies extra snap, like the feeling of when you ollie on a skateboard.
Ghost Basalt Stringers - Basalt stringers sewn into a layer of Triax fibreglass, giving the board more pop, control, and dampening at speed, along with easy manoeuvrability when you're taking it easy.
All Mountain Edge Bevel - Pre-tuned edges for strong edge hold with less catch.
BA MD Glass - Medium Density fibreglass that guarantees consistent quality and light, lively performance.
