Salomon Snowboards - Tech Guide

Salomon Snowboards produce some fantastic snowboards and pump all kinds of tech into their boards. One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a new snowboard is the shape. Salomon generally create Cambered snowboards, however adding a little flair to the traditional shape. Below shows 2 of the main 'Hybrid' Cambers that are used in the Salomon Snowboards that we stock.

Quad Camber - The aggressive characteristics of camber blended with rocker on the tip and tail to make the board unsinkable in pow with untouchable speed. Quad Camber is built with a blend of different radiuses and is more forgiving than a regular camber but maintains the reactivity and pop.

Rock Out Camber - Flat between your bindings for stability, Camber near the feet for response and a rocker on the tip/tail for pressability. Rock Out Camber is designed for premium park performance featuring a blend of flat, camber, and rocker profiles enabling responsive turns and comfortable presses.
