Sick ride, i got the 158 magnum fer my water ski feet. when hitting cheese wedges; its like a laser guided missile off any hit.Super nice camber, anyone who rides a reverse camber is really missing the point of going fast. On soft cord this board can scream. Downside of the equalizer cut is it chops a 'lil bit when carving on icier crud.I brought it out west last year; Fernie didnt know what hit it. Out in south central ontario now; too bad, she misses the freshies.Serious bang for you buck. Dont get it though, I want to be the only one!

Is this board good for hitting up stuff in the back country? Or is it strictly park?

Responded on

This board is primarly targeted for park however i have road this in pow in it handles good but if you are looking for a powder board try checking out a directional board.

Just wondering if this board is still available in the 156. I know its out of season but im looking to start buying all new gear early. Im also looking for a board that will maintain in the power and on the back country. Is this board up for the test.

Responded on

That size is out of stock, The 2011 version will be up soon in sizes 148, 152, 154, 156, 159 cm. It is pretty soft but A TWS Good Wood number 1 pick and a ripping value, the Drift gets you everywhere. Its twin shape and Equalizer sidecut will have you getting loose with confidence on everything from corduroy to your favorite line through any park. Haul ass, chuck your meat, hang on to that cash. You know what’s up.

im thinking of buyin this board, i have K2 boots so does it matter what bindings i buy?

Responded on

Nope not at all. Some boots have a bigger sole and that will be the only thing that may throw off the fit of the boot to the binding. But most boots fit into any binding, just your personal preference. I have found that if you stay with the same company for boots and bindings, they fit nice and snug. I do not ride the same company for both. I ride a pair of 32 TM2's with a pair of Union Contact bindings and they fit soooo nice. So its really all in how it feels for you :)

Im 5'11 would a 159 be suitable for me with this board for all mountain riding?

Responded on

I ride a Rome Machine 154w and im 6' 170lbs. I mainly ride park bec I live in Ontario, but i've taken my Machine all over from park to pipe to pow to back country and it handles well in all conditions. So really its up to you if you like a bigger deck then you def go for a 159. Personally if you can find something more towards a 156 it would be more suitable for all mountain, seeing as 'all mountain' includes park and pipe. But like I said, if you like to ride a bigger deck, then no prob go for the 159. Hope this helps bro

Best Board i have ever owned and and i have had them all GNU Burton Forum Lib this is the best good flex with pop for days. The rubber pads make for a solid soft landing and this thing owns the icy conditions i feel better than magna traction. Buy one its cheap!

Why this board reviews well...but is really a turd

So...have you ever test ridden a board that wasn't yours...taken it for some ripping runs, and come away impressed? Yeah, me too. Problem is, when you finally own that board, you tend to ride it just a little bit harder, a little bit faster, and in a variety of conditions. This is the true test of any piece of equipment.

The Salomon Drift is definitely a damped out, fun riding board. The equalizer sidecut is a bit odd...it feels great in fresh snow, but never really feels quite as smooth as radial sidecut on hardpack. My biggest issue with this board is durability. You never get the whole picture of how a board will hold up until you own it.

My issue with the Drift is that the Royal Rubber sidewalls, which are supposed to dampen impact, have actually proven to significantly diminish the durability of the board. After one day of riding the Drift my board has major issues with the edges only in the areas of the rubber inserts. This has resulted in dented edges in two separate cases, and a separated edge which was pushed under the base. On a board with normal sidewalls, blows to the edge are diminished by the structure of the sidewall and the rest of the board. In the case of the Drift, the soft sidewall actually results in more significant damage to the edges.

If you want a board that actually holds up to any sort of normal riding scenarios steer clear of the Salomon Drift!!!

jYAWN, I rode a drift for two years and it was the only board I have ever owned that has lasted for more than 100 riding days. from '06 to '10 I rode no less than 180 days a calendar year. In '06 broke two Forums in two months and a Rome. In '07 broke two GNUs and another forum. In '08 bought a Drift and a Rossignol Alias and broke the Rossi within 6 weeks. The drift lasted through back country riding, rail jams, slopestyles, and big air competitions for two years. Paid 200 for it in a post season sale. Best snowboard purchase I ever made. If you mess your edges up that much you should tighten up your riding and stop hitting stuff.

Responded on

jYAWN, you definitely are missing out on this board. i rode it the second half of this past season and it's been a real game changer. everything from presses to powder, this board kills it. i love the equalizer side cut, especially in sloppy or slushy snow. if your edges are breaking, maybe it's not the board but the rider....

Would i size 10.5 boot fit on a 159 salomon...

Would i size 10.5 boot fit on a 159 salomon drift with no toe or heal drag?

Responded on

I know this is a late answer...but for any of you wondering...your goal SHOULD NOT be eliminating toe and heel overhang. You need some overhang to achieve enough leverage for the board to turn properly. You should be able to ride fine with 1/2 to 1 inch of overhang. Remember, the sole length of boots varies by manufacturer, and the stance angles you choose will also have a large impact on how much drag you end up with. Low angles mean more drag, higher angles mean less.
