Salomon is the only ski brand to successfully enter into the snowboard market and achieve credibility. They did it by spending their dosh on R & D and making great quality products. The Salomon Burner is their most advanced deck and it has a legion of fans who swear by it as the best free-riding board on the market. Using Salomon’s Space frame construction, the Burner provides increased edge through a combination of cap and sidewall construction. The Zeolit sintered base makes the Burner fast in any snow conditions, but it likes powder the best. Perfect for Niseko. CNC profiling creates a slightly softened tip and tail to allow easier turn initiation and exit while the middle of the board remains very stiff, giving it solid stability when you’re really haulin’. Available in sizes from 157-172cm. ¥55,000 from Victoria Sports, Kanda Tokyo.
