Speedway $600

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

Big­ger isn’t al­ways bet­ter, but in the Speedway’s case it is. While a re­cent trend has been to­ward boards made with in­tent to be sized down, this new shape from Salomon is de­signed to rid­den longer than your stan­dard rig. Fea­tur­ing an ul­tra-light core with vis­i­ble hon­ey­comb pro­fil­ing in the tip, a di­rec­tional ta­pered shape and Salomon’s Back­seat Cam­ber, this deck is most com­fort­able pin­ning through chutes and grip­ping wide, high-speed turns. And with a long, low-en­try nose, there’s no need to down­shift in the deep stuff. As one tester said suc­cinctly, “All it wants to do is haul ass.” So buckle up, be­cause you’re in for a hell of a ride.
