The 2020 Salomon Super 8 is a snowboard inspired by the riding styles of Wolle Nyvelt and Josh Dirksen. The design aims to provide a surfboard-like feel whilst also maintaining excellent edge control thanks to Salomon's high tech design features.
The Super 8 Backseat camber is one of the defining features of this snowboard. The addition of a cambered section under the back foot offers the rider explosive power to maximise turning ability and a flat section under the front foot provides freedom of board movement and fun when riding in powder.
Built using the Aspen Strong Select core and Popster construction the snowboard retains a predictable flex and offers a natural snap and powerful pop all the while saving on weight. Ghost basalt stringers running the length of the board add a durable pop and control at speed, but also allow for an easy feel when cruising at slower speeds.
Salomon's Rocket Science Technology keeps the snowboard stable but also ensures it remains easily manoeuvrable. as well and BiaxGlass fibreglass ensures a consistent level of quality is maintained.
A Quadratic sidecut makes the board easy to initiate turns and makes changing direction effortless during the transition between edges.
All of these features make the Super 8 easy to ride anywhere on the mountain whether floating through powder or charging on freshly groomed corduroy.
