Salomon Super 8 Splitboard 2022

Like powder? You're gonna love the Salomon Super 8 Splitboard. This backcountry explorer combines surfy Backseat Camber with a setback stance for the rider who likes a little extra sauce when the going gets deep, with Salomon's lightweight Ghost Green Core to keep the turns nimble and silky smooth. Throw in a set of industry-leading pre-cut skins from Pomoca, and you've got a one way ticket to the wilderness white room.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Backseat CamberCamber under your back foot and a flat section at the nose, coupled with rocker at the tip and tail lends you maximum control for carving on groomers and a surf-like feel in powder.

Flex

Responsive FlexA stiffer flex helps connect you with your board. It's stiffness allows for quicker turns, easier edge hold and impressive stability at speed.

Shape

Tapered DirectionalThe tail width is slightly tapered (10-15 mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves flotation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.

Rocket ScienceA slightly wider design for more maneuverable and stable boards.

Quadratic SidecutA blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions.

Core

Ghost Green CoreThe Ghost Green core components have been selected to optimize pop and reduce weight with super light paulownia wood.

Laminates

Biax MDMedium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.

Sidewalls

ABS SidewallsSalomon's Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a mouthful, so Salomon calls it ABS, the best material for sidewalls. The molecular structure can be described as a concrete bar with rubber nuggets inside, combining toughness for energy transfer and dampening properties for impact absorption.

Base

Fine Stone FinishSpeed up in powder or softer snow conditions.

SinteredEngineered for super fast glide in everything from fresh pow to sticky spring snow. Sintered material provides superior wax retention, Gallium strengthens impact resistance, and the Electra finish gives a turbocharged glide.

Edges

All Mountain Edge BevelA 1° edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut meets a 2° bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.

Additional Features

Includes Custom POMOCA Skins

Union Explorer Splitboard Bindings 2022

The Union Explorer Splitboard Bindings show Union's commitment to the adventure seekers out there, steadily improving on their designs every season. These latest split bindings are stronger, lighter, and still incredibly comfortable.

The hardware is top notch, the construction is Union-tough, and that ride feel...have we mentioned how these are splitboard bindings for snowboarders? These are a great option for the non-ice axe set.
