Salomon team rider Bode Merrill’s The Ultimate Ride pro model is just what its name implies. The true twin shape, hybrid positive camber profile, and loaded core and fiberglass build meld into this premium all-mountain model made for park, powder, and beyond. Accolades from the test crew included: “It’s super poppy with lots of edge control and spice!” “This fun and flexy board makes all terrain fun,” “The responsive flex and pop rebound in the nose and tail are perfect,” “What a fun, jibby board—it takes on the whole mountain with a freestyle flavor,” and “A near perfect boss for slushy sidehits and fast carving.” Many noted not only its pop and traditional camber power but its ability to rail quick turns saying, “It’s super playful and snappy, with great maneuverability,” and “The flex was great for short radius carves and absolutely crushed anything quick.” This is due to Salomon’s unique Quadralizer blend of sidecuts for seamless edge transition and grip. The board’s potent power and pop come direct from Salomon’s Quad Camber design that puts an extra bit of positive camber at the tips for lethal loft. It’s freestyle, it’s freeride—it’s your all-mountain answer.

Camber: Quad Camber—positive camber between the feet, accentuated camber towards the tips with a slight bit of rocker near the contact points.
(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of
the board’s flex.)
(Sidecut Radius: If you arced the tightest turn possible to make a complete circle, the sidecut radius would be the distance between the direct center of that circle and its rim, in meters. A board with a deeper sidecut would have a smaller radius and would generally make tighter turns. As the radius number increases, a board can be expected to make wider turns. Multiple numbers on the same length board means the radius is blended.)
