Salomon Snowboards Mans Board
When you think about it, big mountain freeriding is really the manliest form of snowboarding. While the toddlers and tweens are jibbing to the latest rap track in the comforts of the park, the men are out trudging through freezing temperatures, howling wind and blinding snow, scoping descents, hiking blade-like ridge lines and slaying area that the masses won't touch. Their loss, because the Man's Board gets it done. It lives up to its name by offering high-speed stability, camber-rocker float and edge hold, and multi-radius sidecut to deliver sure turning and stable bombing. In a world of loud, garish boards, the simple beer bottle themed-graphic is a refreshing breath.
While Salomon labels this an all-mountain board and gives it a directional twin tip, some reviewers said the board's stiffness and reluctant spring make it a poor choice for park riding.
