Reviewer Alex

"Easy float, let me hike, surf and play any terrain. I don't like a powder board to be too flexible, because I want to lay some trenches on the groomers too. When the snow starts falling in the evening, I get happily nervous for the next day."

To all my reviews

 

Fast and float


The Salomon Reserve is a new (2015) directional freeride board. The backseat camber helps you float without killing your rear leg. With medium stifness, the Reserve is quite stable to board on piste too. At speed it holds fine without getting nervous. That of course reduces the playfulness level, but with qualities as speed and powde float I personally don't mind. .

Powder lines

With the Salomon Reserve the most satisfying part is to ride steep powder lines. It floats without a problem and it is stiff enough to have a direct response. Effortlessly finding your pow line down with a short enough radius to take it through the woods too, this is good. And what I like so much about these directional shaped freerboards is that the performance on harder pack is good too. So early morning without fresh snow, you can almost speedcarve your turns on prepared groomers. This quality makes the Salomon Reserve for me an every day snowboard.

Salomon about the Reserve

"Assembled with only the finest ingredients for Josh Dirksen’s likings, the Reserve includes Backseat Camber for explosive turning power, Ghost Carbon Stringers to assure high-speed stability, and ABC Green Roll for the eco-powered snap of bamboo. Own the turns you make.", says Salomon. Yes, a good board for powder and carving corduroy.
