Your dream lines await.
When you're ready to go full throttle down steep lines and step up to huge cliffs, the Slash Straight Snowboard is the tool for the job. This is the same board Slash founder Gigi Ruf rode to the top of the Ultranatural contest podium last year, so you know it's good.
Highly directional in flex and shape, this board is meant to rip technical lines and powder-filled chutes. The longer, rockered nose allows you to surf through deep stuff without submerging, and a slightly stiffer tail gives you the stability needed to slash turns and stomp landings with authority. Reactive Flex uses two unique fiberglass in combination with the specially-profiled core to allow the board to flex across the width. When carving, the board's edges flex downward, making for a concave base that adds extra grip. To give you the grip you need to hold an edge on icy kickers and bulletproof groomers, it features Ultimate Traction, which uses one small, counter-radius bump at the center of the sidecut to create an additional contact point.
Within the inside of this board, you'll find a Forever Wood core made of paulownia, spruce, beech, and poplar wood. This four-way wood blend reduces weight while increasing pop and response. Slick Tip construction in the nose and tail reduces even more weight, substantially lightening your load for hiking and riding backcountry lines. It's also reinforced with carbon/Kevlar® Landing Strips running from the tips to inserts for stability when hauling at high speeds. Speaking of high velocity, the sintered 9900 base provides the fastest glide of any base available. This performance base holds large amounts of wax and holds up to abuse with its impact-resistant, super-dense structure.
