The 2019 Salomon Ultimate Ride is the ultimate ride by name and by nature. Designed by Bode Merill to be his quiver killer, the Ultimate Ride is an aggressive do-everything freestyle snowboard that caters to every possible type of snowboarding. It destroys powder, carves up the groomers, sends it off jumps, and even locks down street rails like it was a pure park board. The special nose and tail shape give you extra float in powder, but the shape is actually a true twin between the contact points so you can ride it switch and you'll never notice a difference on edge. Taking out the Best Tranny Board award and the coveted Best Overall Board award in the Snowboard Magazine Black Board Experiment, the Ultimate Ride is the perfect board for any aggressive rider, regardless of where they ride. If you pick up the Ultimate Ride though, it'd be rude not to ride it everywhere.
Board Type: All Mountain Everything
Camber Type: Quad Camber
A mostly traditional camber profile with exaggerated camber underfoot leading into small rocker zones at the contact points. This gives you extra pop with less catch.
Flex: 9/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A stiff flex for powerful riding and strong stability.
Shape: True Twin
True Twin boards are constructed exactly the same from tip to tail for identical performance in both switch and regular.
Quadralizer Sidecut - The Quadralizer sidecut takes Salomons signature straight line Equalizer sidecut and makes it quadratic, which enhances edge grip, agility, and allows you to perform both big arcing carves and tight aggressive turns.
Core: Ghost Green Core
The Ghost Green Core consists of specially selected components designed for maximum pop and minimum weight, in addition to sustainable Paulownia wood for further weight reduction.
Base: Sintered EG
High speed and good wax retention, so you can go faster for longer. The Sintered EG base has an Electra finish for turbocharged glide and Gallium for extra impact resistance.
Area 51 - Area 51 is a sintered base laced with a super secret wax formula and a specially engineered factory finish for long lasting speed and durability.
Popster - A specially shaped core profile gives your ollies extra snap, like the feeling of when you ollie on a skateboard.
Triax/BA MD Glass - Triaxial Fibreglass that increases durability and stability, plus Medium Density fibreglass that guarantees consistent quality and light, lively performance.
Gunslinger Sidewalls - Carbon inlays run the entire length of the board in the sidewalls, reducing chatter and increasing response.
All Mountain Edge Bevel - Pre-tuned edges for strong edge hold with less catch.
Ghost Carbon Beam - Two carbon beams inserted the tip and tail of the board provide maximum pop for powerful ollies and increased stability at speed.
Boards Lengths: 155cm, 158cm, 161cm
Stance Set Back: 0mm
