The word, legend, gets thrown around a lot in the world of snowboarding, but when it comes to Gigi Ruf, the word might not be enough. Basically, meaning it's no surprise that his original pro model Slash ATV Wide Snowboard is designed to deliver some of the highest performing features available in an all mountain shredder. Employing traditional camber, the profile used since the beginning of snowboarding, this board is designed to distribute weight evenly and increase pop, giving you a precise response and a snappy, reactive feel. It's wider waist makes it perfect for riders with bigger feet size 11 and up. Under the hood of this board, you'll find a Forever Wood core made of paulownia, spruce, beech, and poplar wood. This four way wood blend reduces weight while increasing pop and response. Buried Treasure reduces the weight of the board by combining Kevlar, carbon, and basalt to increase pop and response while allowing for a thinner core that doesn't sacrifice strength. Slick Tip construction in the nose and tail reduces even more weight, substantially lightening your load for hiking and riding backcountry lines. A twin shape and directional flex make it an all terrain, all conditions machine, and the tip protectors on the weight saving concave tips help it stand up to the most aggressive jibbing. Reactive Flex uses two unique fiberglass in combination with the specially profiled core to allow the board to flex across the width. When board sliding a rail, for example, the edges bend upwards like a skateboard to prevent you from catching an edge. When carving a turn, it works the other way around. The board's edges flex downward, making for a concave base that adds extra grip. To give you the grip you need to hold an edge on icy kickers and bulletproof groomers, it features Ultimate Traction, which uses one small, counter radius bump at the center of the sidecut to create an additional contact point. The result is a powerful board that charges through tr...
