Salomon could have called the Time Machine Snowboard the Only Board You Need Snowboard, and it would have been equally appropriate. With a versatile medium-stiff flex and the Cross Profile rocker/camber blend, this is a board that'll do dozens of park laps one day, and send pillow lines the next. The super-fast sintered base meshes perfectly with the catch-free quadratic sidecut, to keep you charging switch and regular. It's a directional twin, and in this case, it basically means it's a twin with a little bit more nose for float on those deep days. If you're looking for a board that will back you up everywhere you want to go, the Time Machine is it.
The directional twin shape of the Time Machine is basically a true twin, with a slightly elongated nose for extra float, without sacrificing handling when riding switch. The Cross Profile puts camber between your feet, for composure on hardpack, and mates it with rocker in the tip and tail for a catch-free ride. There's Ghost basalt stringers running from the insert pack to the tip and tail, which boosts the torsional response. Royal Rubber pads underneath the bindings fight chatter, and provide extra damping for the already smooth Aspen Strong core. The sintered base slides like greased lightning, and holds a ton of wax.
