Camber puts pop into skis/snowboards and gives skiers/boarders good edge control while carving turns
The flex pattern is balanced, leaving the board to respond in the same manner forward as backward.
The 2019 Salomon Super 8 is a freeride warrior, inspired by Wolle Nyvelts surfy style and Josh Dirksens carving prowess. Featuring a wider design as standard and a directional freeride-focused camber profile, the Super 8 puts power under your back foot and float in your nose for a surfy feeling in powder and a strong, speedy ride on hardpack. The Super 8 will provide effortless float, powerful carves, and non-stop good times regardless of whether you're slashing waist deep powder in Japan or tearing up the groomers at your home mountain
