Salomon Grip Snowboard

The 2010 Salomon Grip, is an eco-conscious twin-tip freestyle deck created from the minds of Austria's Wolfgang Nyvelt and the Salomon crew. Its RLNK (ridiculously long nose kick) tips are generously elongated for powder float and presses without sacrificing its traditional camber's snap, stability, and rebound. The Grip also features kinked Equalizer edges, which clamp to any snow surface without impeding smooth arcing turns.

The reason we like this board is its part of Salomon's G.I.F.T. (Green Initiative For Tomorrow) program. The Grip boats an Aspen Strong core combined with an ABC Wrapper which uses structural sustainable bamboo veneers to reduce its fiberglass, plastic, and resin content by 25%. Keep you eyes out for Wolle's signature Grip that'll be produced with layers of bamboo and glue making it free of plastics, fully recyclable, and hopefully the shape of things to come.
