Overview
The Slash Straight snowboard comes fine-tuned by Gigi to be your ticket for navigating the straight and narrow of the mountain. With Backseat CamRock and a setback stance, get ready to lean back and plow through powder with buttery smooth ease. The larger nose and subtle rocker keeps the front afloat, while its half crescent tail sinks, allowing you to keep your weight back for a comfortable stance when riding the steep and deep.

Kevlar and carbon fiber amplify energy return for more aggressive carves, higher airs, and less chatter at speed. Gigi also dropped in a brand new core made of three different wood types to cut weight and improve buoyancy. If you have lofty atmospheric goals and a deep love for technical lines, the Straight is your new best bud.

Ride Style

All Mountain - Whether you're doing hot laps, tree runs, ripping around or just cruising the park, this board's versatility should allow you to shred virtually anywhere on the mountain in whatever condition.

Slash a turn, tweak a grab, bonk a tree, ollie the cat track and be sure to high five your friends before doing it all over again.

Powder/Freeride - Whether dipping into the trees or hiking out of bounds with your buddies, these boards are designed to get you to the good stuff and handle whatever situation you throw at them.

Typically directional or tapered directional shapes, wide floaty noses, floaty rocker technologies and mellow sidecuts for laying out wide turns when you're in the fluffy white.

Aggressive Riding - Built tough for those on the charge and stepping up to bigger features - whether it's high-speed groomer assaults, heavy hitting jumps, dropping cliffs and chutes, or just ripping the whole mountain a new one - these bindings offer increased stability, power and overall "oomph" to your shred game.

Flex Rating

SoftStiff - Mid-Stiff Flex - good stability, pop, somewhat aggressive response and control. Also ideal for slightly bigger riders.

Shape

Directional - Directional shapes are typically built for all-mountain freeriding and groomer assaults, and often featured on some entry level snowboards. Designed to perform better riding in one direction over the other, these boards usually come equipped with setback stances, a longer or wider nose for float, and a stiffer tail for drive.

Directional snowboards are good for everything from aggressive power riding to laid-back cruising, from steeps and trees to open powder fields and beyond.

Camber Profile

Camber Dominant - A predominately cambered board with a mix of camber profiles. Camber zones offers pop and stability. Rocker offers a little more float for powder along with playfulness for jibbing, while flat zones are a happy medium between camber and rocker.

Key Features

Backseat CamRock - Backseat CamRock gives you everything you need to slay your backcountry line. There is a touch more rocker in the nose to add float and improve maneuverability, matched with a small set-back camber between the bindings to keep your snowboard responsive.

Core

Powder Wood Core - Composed of low-density paulownia and poplar woods for their optimal strength and weight, with beech hardwood strips placed through the inserts and along the rails to increase core durability, pop and impact protection. The Powder Core is light, lofty, tough and designed for powder float.

Laminates

Reactive Flex Stringers - The most advanced board technology available today! A composition of two unique fiberglass layouts in combination with the lightweight wood core assembled and profiled by Slash's engineers in Switzerland. Reactive Flex gives board's the ability to also flex across the width. So, however you bend the board it will react the best way imaginable.

For example if you jump on a park rail for a boardslide, the board's edges lift up, creating a convex base which minimizes your chance of catching an edge. When carving a turn, it works the other way around. The board edges flex downward, creating a concave base which makes your edge bite more into the turns.

Landing Strip Stringers - Strips of Kevlar and carbon fiber placed from the inserts to the tips in the nose and tail to support landings and reduce washouts. This design also helps dampen high-speed chatter, offer stability at speed and load up potent ollies.

Base

Diamond Stone Finish - Diamond-structured stone grinding is the best possible base finish. The grinding occurs on two axes to maximize grind and optimize the durability of the base. This eliminates the slow, suction feel that comes with one dimensional base finishes.

Sintered HD Base - The fastest and densest sintered base on the market today, and is also the most impact-resistant surface available. This performance base holds wax longer to keep you at the head of the pack.

Details

Tip Protectors - Thin and light, but surprisingly strong, aluminum protectors on the tail and/or nose protect the board from the damage that can result from impacts. This small detail makes a big difference for the durability of the deck, especially if your repertoire is more park/urban focused.

Ultimate Traction Bumps - Ultimate Traction is a small counter radius (bump) placed in the middle of the board's sidecut. By positioning this bump instead of using a traditional sidecut, Slash improved edge hold and center stability by not only relying on the board's outside contact points. This gives you more control of your board, especially on ice, less fatigue turning the board and lots more fun.

Steel Edges - Slash's edges have 35% more steel than stock edges from other companies. This makes the edges stronger and more durable to enhance the life of the board.

Progressive Sidecut - Sidecut makes a snowboard turn. Progressive Sidecut is Slash's enhanced sidecut design that makes the board's contact points more relevant for smoother turns.
