Salomon | Assassin Snowboard | Mens | 2022
The 2022 Salomon Assassin builds upon a legendary legacy of versatility. A true all mountain freestyle board that can replace a full quiver, the Assassin has a directional twin shape that feels like a twin but floats better in powder, allowing you to take it to the park, the peak, the streets, and anywhere in between. Salomon have merged their most progressive powder and freestyle board constructions in this shape to make it a great choice regardless of where you ride, and being the board of choice for many Salomon pro and am riders, you can be sure that it's one that will perform wherever it takes you.
Rider Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Board Type: All Mountain Freestyle
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.
A mid flex that offers all mountain versatility. Playful when you want it, and stable when you need it.
Shape: Directional Twin
This board rides like a true twin but has a floatier nose for enhanced performance in powder.
Quadralizer - 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
A full Aspen wood core with every piece being hand selected for unrivalled quality.
BA MD Glass - Medium Density fibreglass that guarantees consistent quality and light, lively performance.
Popster Eco Booster - Pop meets eco performance. Popster shapes the woodcore profile with strategically placed variations of thickness, providing skate-influenced snap and pop. Eco booster adds bamboo rods for more natural power.
Base: Sintered EG
High speed and good wax retention, so you can go faster for longer. The Sintered EG base has an Electra finish for turbocharged glide and Gallium for extra impact resistance.
Mounting Pattern: 2x4 Inserts
ABC Wrapper - ABC Wrapping uses structural bamboo veneers to reduce fibreglass and resin content in each board by 40%. Traditional ABS sidewalls are replaced by waterproof bamboo rods, going one step further for the environment. This added bamboo gives the board a lively feel with explosive ollies and reactive turns.
Royal Cork Rails - Cork is added to the sidewalls under your feet for an environmentally friendly way to dampen your ride and absorb impact along your edges.
All Mountain Edge Bevel - Pre-tuned edges for strong edge hold with less catch.
