2024 Salomon Super 8 Pro Snowboard
The Super 8 Pro is the essence of speed and agility in a freeride board. Using Salomon's fastest, Area 51 base material and Damplifier Lite, this tapered directional shape with Backseat Camber is extremely agile in deep snow and groomers alike, with an uncanny ability to power through variable terrain. A wider shape allows the rider to size down 3-4 cm.
Backseat Camber – Camber loaded under the back foot for precision and control, with flat segments under the front foot for superior floatation in deep snow. The best of both worlds!
Flex Rating – 4/5 (1=Soft,5=Stiff)
Tapered Directional – Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves floatation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
Quadratic Sidecut – Quadratic sidecuts use 3 or more radii instead of a continuous radial sidecut. The radii of the sidecut is shallower at the ends and deeper in the middle, which promotes easier turn initiation.
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.
Aspen Select Core – Every single FSC certified wood strip is hand selected to ensure unparalleled core quality and lightness.

C/FX Basalt – Take down of the C/FX superfiber. This version of the C/FX is composed of Basalt & fiber glass for power and smooth ride.
Damplifier Lite – Lightweight honey comb materials and cork combined and strategically placed in the tip and tail for better flotation, less inertia for easier steering, more control, and increased dampening and shock resistance.
Biaxial Medium Density Fiberglass – Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
Gunslinger Sidewalls – These sidewalls implement carbon inlays that run the full length of the board to meet the reaction and shock absorption needs of all riders.
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
Area 51 Finish – Built to go faster and fly higher, the Area 51 base is a high-density sintered base laced with a super secret wax formula and a specially engineered factory finish designed for air time and durability.
All-Mountain Edge Bevel – A 1° edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut meets a 2° bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
