Salomon Huck Knife 2017-2018 Snowboard Review | The Snowboard Asylum

New to the range last year, the Huck Knife was the replacement for the best-selling Sabotage. With such big boots to fill the snowboard world was sceptical that this upstart could even get close. Boy, how wrong they were. Winning both a Transworld Good Wood and taking best overall board in Snowboarder Mag’s Black Board Experiment the Huck Knife has firmly cemented itself in as one of the best freestyle boards on the market. By combining state of the art design with high end manufacturing, this truly stunning snowboard redefines park snowboarding, delivering a level of control and performance that is truly outstanding.

Built around a lightweight blunt tip twin chassis, it’s designed to deliver the ultimate in balanced control and feel, ensuring that no matter how technical your riding gets, you’ll always be in control. But don’t go thinking that the Huck Knife is just another one of those soft flexing jib boards, this board is so much more. This is nowhere more obvious than with the addition of Salomon’s state of the art Quad Camber profile. Borrowed directly from the highly acclaimed Ultimate Ride, this advanced profile blends an enhanced camber with rocker at the tip and tail, this creates a hook free ride but it does it without compromising pop and power, ensuring that this is one of the most responsive freestyle boards there is. Add to this the stunning EQ Rad sidecut, for increased edge control and you’ve got a board that not only rules the park but one which also kills it out on the mountain.

Internally Salomon really push the boat out delivering a level of construction almost unheard of at this price point. Heading this up is the responsive Aspen Select Popster wood core. This lively wood core is profiled with Salomon’s advanced Popster milling to deliver the perfect balance of freestyle playfulness with all terrain pop and power. Add to this the mid flex Bi-Ax glass structural layers for the optimum torsional flex and the pop enhancing Slingshot inserts under the bindings and the Huck Knifes performance credentials are clear to see.
