Salomon Snowboards 2012-2013

04 Jun, 2012


Play like a Champion. That’s Salomon Snowboards for 2013 and they want you to get loose on the mountain. Their line-up includes everything from all mountain access to park and freestyle to powderific fun. Their board technology camber profiles feature rock out camber (flat between the bindings, camber under the feet and rocker on the tip/tail), flat out camber (flat profile with camber between the feet), pres-sure rocker (pure reverse camber), pow rocker (flat profile between the bindings with more rocker on tip/tail), super flat (flat profile), cross profile (camber between the feet, rocker on tip/tail), camber (traditional).

For 2013, Salomon brings out the Classicks which are light, black and badass. They are the most advanced profiles with muscle car pop and equalizer to create a totally unique board feel that works. The Classicks come on the Villain, Drift Rocker, Official and Sabotage. These boards are designed to be lighter (5.3 ounces).
