END OF SEASON SALE, ALL 2024 GEAR ON SALE NOW

Salomon HPS - Louif Paradis Snowboard 2024

On a lot of boards we get on it’s pretty easy to tell where they’re most at home, not the Louif. Stiff enough for hard-charging, soft enough for park laps and more technical riding.

A rare balance between big mountain and freestyle DNA that’s hard to find with boards in this category.

BE LIKE WATER.

This is a very good snowboard. Everything thing about it feels dialed in and precise. It is slightly directional and can be that big mountain style charger, but also has some freestyle DNA that makes it playful enough to take some park laps or bounce through some low-angle trees. The flex is solid but has a lively feel to it wanting to push you into your next turn. It grips really well on hardpack and feels confident at speed without feeling too demanding. There's something special going on here, you can tell it's a finely-tuned machine that won't disappoint.   

On groomers, it feels stable and does not have a speed limit. In trees and soft it feels nimble and energetic and a slightly directional shape keeps your weight back. In more variable snow conditions it can charge over crud while staying smooth and confident. This is one of the most versatile boards out there. If you don't believe me go check out some recent videos of Louif Paradis, from the streets to the backcountry this is his board of choice. 

Who's this board for? Anybody who's looking for one board that's good at everything. 

Who isn't this board for? Brand-new riders might find a 7/10 flex to be a bit stiff. Someone looking for a powder-specific board might be happier on something more directional with more nose rocker.
