Crafted as part of the fourth rendition of Wolle Nyvelt's Hillside Project, the new Salomon HPS - Annie Boulanger Snowboard is a powder surfer for the dream days of winter. To keep up with Annie Boulanger's progressive backcountry riding, her HPS board comes with a tapered directional shape, a superlight Ghost Green Core, and a setback surf-nosed camber profile. It flows over pow fields, arcs turns across groomers, and slashes wind lips with power and grace.
Powder Camber – Camber between feet for carving and precision, and huge rocker in the nose for flotation in very deep powder.
4 (1 Soft - 5 Stiff)
Tapered Directional – Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves flotation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
Radial Sidecut – Radial is the classic sidecut for consistent response forward and switch.
Ghost Green Core – Ghost Green Core components have been selected and designed to optimize pop and reduce weight while utilizing sustainable attributes of a super light paulownia wood.
Popster – Popster's shaped core profile thins out under foot and thickens outside your bindings before tapering again at tip and tail to maximize the natural snap and pop of wood. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
ABC Wrapper – ABC Wrapper is a patented process using structural bamboo veneers to reduce fiberglass and resin content in each board by 40%.
Biaxial Medium Density Fiberglass – Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
Bamboo / Cork Rails – The liveliness of eco-friendly bamboo, mixed with cork composite for the best direct feel and dampening ride in the industry.
Sintered EG – Engineered for a 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.
