The stick is sick. Years after its inception, Wolle Nyvelt's go-to powder ripper remains one of the best loved freeride boards around. The Salomon Sickstick Snowboard is built around a trio of super light materials: bamboo, cork, and paulownia, to provide a powerful and exceptionally nimble ride with tons of float in the powder. The directional shape is just a bit setback and tapered, meaning it performs well riding switch in pow or taking a more freestyle approach to big mountain ripping. If you're a sick shredder looking for one stick to do it all, the choice is easy.
Rocker Type: Rock Out Camber – Flat between your bindings for stability, camber near the feet for response, and rocker on the tip/tail for pressability.
Flex: 4 (1 Soft - 5 Stiff)
Shape: Tapered Directional – Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves flotation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
Quadralizer Sidecut – Explosive combination of Equalizer and Quadratic sidecuts allows high speed carving as well as superior edge control in tight spots.
Core: Ghost Green Core – Ghost Green Core components have been selected and designed to optimize pop and reduce weight while utilizing sustainable attributes of a super light paulownia wood.
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.
Laminates: Biaxial Medium Density Fiberglass – Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
ABC Wrapper – ABC Wrapper is a patented process using structural bamboo veneers to reduce fiberglass and resin content in each board by 40%.
Sidewalls: Bamboo / Cork Rails – The liveliness of eco-friendly bamboo, mixed with cork composite for the best direct feel and dampening ride in the industry.
Base: 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.
Fine Stone Finish – Fine stone finish helps speed up in powder or softer snow conditions.
Edges: 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.
