Review: Salomon Salvatore Sanchez

Overview:

The Salomon Salvatore Sanchez is the reverse camber version of their popular Sanchez board.  The Salvatore Sanchez is a fun lightweight freestyle board with a very loose “skatey” feel.  The Salvatore is a true twin tip sporting Salomon’s fun and snappy Aspen Light Core and rubber dampening pads to help smooth out the bumps.  Retailing at $350 the Salvatore brings a lot of tech to the table for not a lot of cheese.

Props:

No surprises here, as a soft flexing reverse cambered freestyle board, the Salvatore really shines off the snow.  On metal, wood or plastic the Salvatore will have you spinning and sliding like a video star.

Knocks:

Like most reverse cambers I’ve ridden the Salvatore has a noticable lack of pop on ollies.  I also found the Salvatore to be a little too “loose” for my liking.  I had a hard time getting this board on edge when I needed to and sometimes felt downright out of control. 

Bottom Line:

The Salvatore is a fun playful board best suited to park rail and box sessions or urban rail assaults.  I’d have a hard time recommending this board as your go-to do-it-all everyday ride.

Thanks to Emo at Method Board Shop for the demo hook up.
