Salomon Abstract Snowboard 2023
2023 Salomon Abstract Unisex Snowboard
The Abstract is a consolidation of years of freestyle board development and team feedback, designed to remove limitations on style and expression. Loaded with features, this mid-flexing unisex board is equipped with our most popular camber profile and sidecut pairing for versatility, pop, and playfulness in the park, streets, or wherever you ride.
We appreciate that the snowboard industry is acknowledging gender is not what makes a snowboard perform. It's just physical dimensions. We all come in different sizes and shapes. The key to sizing a snowboard is first, boot size and then size preference for the application, and then weight. Those size guides are detailed for a reason. The generic "ski shop" nose to chin mantra is exactly why you should never buy snowboards from a ski shop or a warehouse retailer.
Rock Out Camber features a combination flat and camber zones underfoot for stability and power, with rocker in the tip and tail to for easy presses and forgiveness.
A combination of Popster Core underfoot, Ghost Carbon Beams in the tip and tail, and three intersecting layers of fiberglass provides long lasting, explosive pop.
Quadralizer sidecut helps redistribute edge pressure along the entire edge, providing more maneuverability, precision, and edge hold.
BOARD PROFILE: Rock Out Camber
