Today’s purveyors of park riding don’t discriminate between cheese wedges and sidehits and because of that, demand a snowboard that is stable in the jump line, smooth for hitting rails, and ready to tackle natural features found elsewhere on trails. With this in mind, Salomon created the Huck Knife Pro, a lighter and poppier version of their team-favorite Huck Knife. The combination of Salomon’s Quad Camber—traditional camber between the bindings and rocker on the tip and tail—makes for a forgiving ride that doesn’t sacrifice ollie power. The board’s flex and snap are enhanced by carbon stringers in Salomon’s Popster Booster core while the EQ Rad Sidecut provides the perfect balance of agility and fun. Salomon packed all of this performance tech in a classic blunt shape, with the end result being that whatever you decide to ride onto or off of, the Huck Knife Pro will perform.
This true park board with a classic blunt shape comes upgraded with technology for amplified park performance. The Huck Knife Pro is built to handle any feature, loaded with a versatile flex, lightweight construction, and increased pop. Ready for side hits, park jumps, rails, tree jibs, and endless tricks.
