Salomon Idol - 2012


So this year Salomon added the aptly named Man’s Board to the boys range, but the girls haven’t been hard done by, actually they’ve done rather well with addition of Annie Boulanger’s board of choice, the Idol. The Idol is as high-tech as female snowboards get, the directional twin shapes’ blunted tips and early rise tips mean the IDOL works well in powder, but the Quadratic sidecut and majority cambered profile assure plenty of grip on icy days. Lively bamboo and damp cork are included in the construction and Salomon’s Popster core adds to the power and pop of the Idol. The Idol is best described as a slightly relaxed Man’s Board, still offering top all-mountain performance but softened up for the lighter female form.
