Review

The Salomon Idol is built for the experienced ladies that want a slick looking all-mountain ride that’s powerful and offers plenty of agility. This Salomon snowboard is well-known for being a hard-charging board that’s capable of doing tricks into deep fresh powder. It’s Directional Twin Shape and medium-stiff flex provide straight-line stability and added float allowing you to dart through deep tree runs and powder filled sloops. With camber running between the binding inserts this board gives a powerful energy transfer and quite an aggressive edge hold. This boards rides stable enables a super fast glide while absorbing uneven terrain nicely. The Salomon Idol snowboard is a pretty tech packed deck that conquers the entire mountain, but shines on steep faces and high-speed runs.
