The Salomon HPS-Taka Nakai x Wool Nyvelt was designed and built entirely by snowboard icons Wolfgang Nyvelt and Takaharu Nakai. This board combines a tapered directional share and Powder Camber profile with a medium to soft flex. The large rocker in the nose makes this masterpiece extremely agile and smooth when you're surfing through the deepest snow in your favourite part of the backcountry.
A fun all-mountain/powder board for every rider - carving turns on the piste, surfing turns in the powder or creative riding all over the mountain. With this board, the good times never end.
The tapered directional shape is perfect for all-mountain and freeriding. The nose is slightly wider than the tail for controlled turns in any terrain. The offset of the bindings in the direction of the tail (setback) makes the nose a little longer for even more lift in powder.
The Powder Camber profile consists of a camber between the bindings, a large rocker area in the nose and a slightly smaller rocker in the tail. This keeps the board extremely manoeuvrable in the pow and gives it enormous lift. The camber offers you good edge hold and fast power transmission.
The soft-medium flex lets you make easy turns and guarantees plenty of fun and a comfortable rides at all times and in all terrains, whether you're in the park, on the power or piste, or anywhere in between.
The sintered EG Base is designed for super fast gliding on all types of snow, from fresh powder snow to sultry spring snow. Salomon increases the natural snap and pop of the wood core with a specially shaped Popster core profile. The components of the Ghost Green core have been selected and developed to optimize pop and reduce weight while at the same time utilizing the sustainable properties of super light paulownia wood. ABC Wrapper is a patented process in which a bamboo veneer reduces the proportion of glass fibre and synthetic resins in the board by 40%. The classic ABS sidewalls are no more and have been replaced by waterproof bamboo canes.
Salomon began their journey in the French Alps in 1947 and their values have stayed the same since day 1: "Curious, playful and optimistic but focused, dedicated and passionate all the same." As one of the backbones of the ski and snowboard industry, Salmon strive to connect people with nature in a playful yet progressive way, much in the same way as we do.
