2024 SALOMON SUPER 8 PRO SNOWBOARD
IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE, IT'S SUPER 8
If you’re looking for a freeride board that can go fast and nimble, look no further than the Super 8 Pro. This board has a tapered directional design and a Backseat Camber profile that make it responsive and stable on any terrain. It also features our Area 51 base material and Damplifier Lite technology, which give it the highest speed and smoothness. The Super 8 Pro has a wider shape that lets you ride it 3-4 cm shorter than usual.
Backseat Camber – Camber loaded under the back foot for precision and control, with flat segments under the front foot for superior floatation in deep snow. The best of both worlds!
Flex Rating – 4.5 (1 Soft - 5 Stiff)
Tapered Directional – Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves floatation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
Quadratic Sidecut – Quadratic sidecuts use 3 or more radii instead of a continuous radial sidecut. The radii of the sidecut is shallower at the ends and deeper in the middle, which promotes easier turn initiation.
Popster – Popster's shaped core profile thins out under foot and thickens outside your bindings before tapering again at tip and tail to maximize the natural snap and pop of wood. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
Aspen Select Core – Every single FSC certified wood strip is hand selected to ensure unparalleled core quality and lightness.
FSC® Certified Wood Core
C/FX Basalt – Take down of the C/FX superfiber. This version of the C/FX is composed of Basalt & fiber glass for power and smooth ride.
Damplifier Lite – Lightweight honey comb materials and cork combined and strategically placed in the tip and tail for better flotation, less inertia for easier steering, more control, and increased dampening and shock resistance.
Biaxial Medium Density Fiberglass – Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
Recycled ABS Sidewalls – The molecular structure of ABS can be described as a concrete bar with rubber nuggets inside, combining toughness for energy transfer and dampening properties for impact absorption.
50% Recycled Sintered Base – Provides a moderate balance between the speed created by a hard surface and good wax retention.
Area 51 Finish – Built to go faster and fly higher, the Area 51 base is a high-density sintered base laced with a super secret wax formula and a specially engineered factory finish designed for air time and durability.
All-Mountain Edge Bevels – A 1° edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut meets a 2° bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
