Josh Dirksen's ride to the white room.
Approved by legendary Pacific Northwest shredder Josh Dirksen, the Salomon Sick Stick can tackle tight trees, steep chutes, and the deepest days you've ever encountered. Featuring a tapered twin shape and Pow Rocker Profile, which is flat between the bindings with added rocker on tip and tail, the Sick Stick is designed for all-mountain freestyle and launching off everything in sight when the forecast calls for feet of fresh stuff. Although it's killer in powder, the Sick Stick also rips hardpack conditions due to its centered stance.
Constructed with a patented ABC Wrapper process, structural bamboo veneers reduce fiberglass and resin content by 40%, for a snappy and responsive ride that saves precious resources. Making the Sick Stick even more environmentally friendly, a Ghost Green sustainable wood core is chosen from Salomon's best wood strips and carefully selected sustainable light wood. Infusing a skate-like feel into your snowboarding endeavors, a Popster shaped core profile maximizes the natural snap and powerful pop of wood. Rounding out this board's list of impressive construction characteristics, the Sick Stick has a sintered EG base that is engineered with Gallium for superior impact resistance and sports an Electra finish for an ultra-fast glide on a wide array of snow surfaces.
