The 2019 Salomon Pillow Talk is a Wolfgang Nyvelt creation, a female tailored tapered twin specifically designed for float and manoeuvrability in powder and strong edge hold on groomers. The special shape keeps your nose up and your tail down when the snow gets deep, and Salomons signature Quadralizer edges enhance your grip and control in all conditions, so you can slash the powder in the trees and then lay down some deep carves on the way back to the lift. With a Transworld Good Wood award backing up its performance, the Pillow Talk is a freeriders dream.
Board Type: Powder and Groomers
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: 6/10 (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.
High speed and good wax retention, so you can go faster for longer.
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.
