The 2024 Nitro Slash has a 3D Surf Tech design, which gives the nose a convex shape that transitions into the front binding for a smooth and surfy feel in powder. Balancing that out is the concave shape in the tail, which gives you quick control and all the response you would need.
The full camber profile gives the board all the power you will need for carving, with smooth and reliable edge-to-edge transitions. If you want a board that can make any day feel like a pow day, the Slash is it.
The 2024 Salomon Bellevue is a snowboard designed for riders who are looking for a directional all terrain, freeride ripper. With a wider design under a directional camber profile with a tapered tail, you get all the float and stability within powder without burning out your back leg. Having traditional camber under your back foot with a nice flat section under the front you get a springy pop and incredible edge hold from the back section, with a surfy front. The Bellevue will provide effortless float, powerful carves, and non-stop good times regardless of whether you're slashing waist-deep powder in Japan or tearing up the groomers at your home mountain.
The 2024 Never Summer Swift is the original inspiration for the Shaper series, the original board designed to be the greatest powder board of all time. Not only is this board amazing in powder from its 20mm of taper and setback directional shape, it's actually amazing everywhere, so you can take it out every day and be confident you're in for a good time. Surf powder, carve groomers, and charge all over the mountain on the Swift.
The 2024 Capita Equalizer is inspired from Capita team rider Jess Kimura's movement from throwing down incredible street parts to her transition into the backcountry. This high end women's board is specifically designed to be an all mountain powerhouse offering all the bells and whistles you could ever want in a snowboard. With an updated camber profile for 2024 you get positive camber throughout the board with reverse in the nose and tail, offering both control while carving and float in powder. Accompanied and enhanced by the new Meta Core, you get the desired flex for all terrain riding and stability at speed offering all the response you could ever need in one of the most advanced women's freeride boards available.

The Retro Ripper is a timeless board that turns average days into great days, and great days into best days.
The 2024 Burton Story Board is the ultimate womens freeride snowboard that promotes control, confidence, and power all over the mountain.
