The Salomon Man’s Board is a solid all mountain snowboard than can handle whatever terrain you want to ride it on.
It has a Cross Profile camber profile, which means there is regular old school camber between the feet, and rocker on the nose and the tail. The camber give you good pop for ollies and jumps, and the rocker helps the board float in the deep snow.
Rather than using one radius for the sidecut, it uses Salomons Quadratic sidecut, which is made of 4 elliptical curves. Basically this is designed to make starting turns easy, and very smooth for edge to edge transitions.
This is the board for a rider who wants a strong, poppy board that can be ridden anywhere. Something that is good for pow days, but can still handle riding anywhere on the mountain. Winner of the 2013 Transworld Good Wood for boards over $450.
