High-quality snowboards are often very hard to find. Although some cheap quality ones are easily available the ones which are professional snowboards, integrated with some of the latest technologies making them responsive, are very hard to find. However, we think that we have finally found one. Presenting you the Salomon Official Snowboard.

With the EQ5 side cut, Ghost Green core, and Popster Eco Booster technologies, the Salomon Official Snowboard is the board of your dreams. We would like to tell you before you continue reading the review that the Official is only for those who have perfect command over snowboarding. It is not the game for beginners.

Ghost Green Core

It is a well-known fact that core material of a snowboard must be lightweight so that the board doesn’t sink in the snow. Salomon has tried hard to make their core extremely lightweight and they are successful in this.

The best of the wood strips has been selected for the official Salomon Snowboard, carefully carved and then mixed with high-quality sustainable wood which is very lightweight. All of this mixture is integrated into the core of the Official to produce a light yet poopy core material. It is very lightweight too so there is no chance of the board sinking in the snow.

However, we would like to tell you that amazingly, Official has the Directional Twin shape which is able to perfectly meet the needs of all freestyle terrain.
