The Brainstorm is an all-terrain beast that can handle advanced level freestyle and freeride at a far more friendly price. The Directional Twin shape, Backseat CamRock and medium flex help you surf through the powder with ease thanks to the catch-free rocker nose, early rise on the tail and powerful camber towards the back. Something you'll notice on your first run is the recessed tip and tail reduce swing weight which makes the board feel a couple centimeters shorter than it actually is. To counter balance this, Slash gave the Brainstorm a long effective edge and sidecut to help maintain stability at speeds.

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.
Forever Wood Core - Combines four different wood cores: paulownia, spruce, beech and poplar, which reduces weight while increasing reactivity, pop and longevity in extreme conditions. Slash uses only European FSC wood species assembled and profiled in their Swiss woodshop.
Biax Fiberglass - Biax fiberglass is a two-way weave of fiberglass with strands running every 90°. It’s more forgiving, easier to flex and and highly versatile for all terrain types.
Triax Fiberglass - Triax fiberglass provides superior pop, consistent torsional flex, and more overall response.
Buried Treasure Stringers - This is the ultimate combination of carbon, Kevlar and basalt fibers developed to benefit all the aspects of your board. This material combination is lightweight yet very strong, and allows Slash to slim the core thickness, which increases response.
Belt Finish - The belt finish gets your base optimized before it's fully waxed.
Sintered Base 7000 - This sintered base is fast, durable and requires less waxing.
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.
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.
Setback Stance - The farther back the setback stance is on a snowboard, the more weight is transferred towards the tail of the board. This extends the nose portion, which provides increased stability at high speeds and more control when riding in powder, helping you make faster turns and initiate aggressive carving.
Factory Waxed - All Slash boards are factory waxed with One Ball Jay wax and are ready to shred straight out of the wrapper.
