Highly capable jib machine.
The Slash Paxson Snowboard is a signature model designed for Pacific Northwest rail destroyer Johnnie Paxson. This model has been overhauled for 2014 to include carbon fiber Sweet Spots and a blazing fast sintered 9900 base. Although strategically designed for park and rail riders, this board is much more capable than your average jib stick. A flat profile keeps things very predictable and stable, allowing you to fly through the park without washing out at high speeds.
Inside the guts of this board, you'll find a Snap Crackle Pop core. Alternating poplar and beech gives this board a lively feel and high strength. Spruce has been placed into the tail and nose areas, increasing pop for launching onto rails and jibs. New for this year, Sweet Spot carbon fiber can be found at the contact points of the nose and tail. They run to the middle of the inserts, increasing pop and strength, and they ultimately give this board a much more playful feel.
This board features Reactive Flex, which allows this board to flex across the width. Reactive Flex prevents your edges from catching on boardslides, as the board's base bends around the rail, in a slightly convex shape. When pushing into a turn, the board's edges flex downward, making for a concave base which turns with extra grip. Ultimate Traction has been provided for increased stability and edge hold. This technology places a small, counter-radius bump at the center of the board. The end result is increased stability, as the rider doesn't have to rely solely on nose and tail contacts for edge hold.
