Description

Highly capable jib machine.

The Slash Paxson Snowboard is a signature model designed for Pacific Northwest rail destroyer Johnnie Paxson. This model has been overhauled for 2014 to include carbon fiber Sweet Spots and a blazing fast sintered 9900 base. Although strategically designed for park and rail riders, this board is much more capable than your average jib stick. A flat profile keeps things very predictable and stable, allowing you to fly through the park without washing out at high speeds.

Inside the guts of this board, you'll find a Snap Crackle Pop core. Alternating poplar and beech gives this board a lively feel and high strength. Spruce has been placed into the tail and nose areas, increasing pop for launching onto rails and jibs. New for this year, Sweet Spot carbon fiber can be found at the contact points of the nose and tail. They run to the middle of the inserts, increasing pop and strength, and they ultimately give this board a much more playful feel.

This board features Reactive Flex, which allows this board to flex across the width. Reactive Flex prevents your edges from catching on boardslides, as the board's base bends around the rail, in a slightly convex shape. When pushing into a turn, the board's edges flex downward, making for a concave base which turns with extra grip. Ultimate Traction has been provided for increased stability and edge hold. This technology places a small, counter-radius bump at the center of the board. The end result is increased stability, as the rider doesn't have to rely solely on nose and tail contacts for edge hold.

DA BOMB!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Holy $hit!!! First two words that came to mind after shredding down my first run in 2 years coming back from rehabilitating knee injury. Slash came out right after my injury and I've been always interested in their boards. And boy am I glad, I chose the right board. Don't be fooled by the description, this is much more than just ur park oriented board. It can rip through the whole mountain with ease and style if u know what ur doing. So I wouldn't recommend this to a beginner. Just the graphics on the board alone should have few heads turning ur way. Hands down, probably the sickest graphics to be laid on snowboard. Keep it coming GiGi!!!

the graphic by itself should be enough

this is a great park board, I personally like to ride wet noodles so I found it to be stiff, but it is an aggressive board. The spoon shape helps knock out chunder and pow and whatever else that is in your way. I rode this on the summer slopes of Mt. Hood and ripping around on it was great. Great response at higher speeds. I recommend this for a park/rail oriented all mountain ripper.

Slash some snow!!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This board was a huge surprise to me- likely standout of the year! I mounted it up expecting it to be a bigger mountain style board coming from Slash, but it was awesome. So glad they are using a variation od Salomon's Equalizer side cut- I think it's some of the most fun (and simple) edge tech out there. It was flexible enough to be fun, but not overly loose. So good for carving, cruising, and surfing. If I rode it strictly in the park, I would prefer this be a 148, but if we're shredding all over the mountain, the 152 would be sick. Oh, and I think this is one of my favorite graphics ever. I would look down and see a dragon, and think "Sh!t, I wanna do something really cool!" So yes, this board is epic.

JIB/Park/Freestyle Fun

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing is built for all things freestyle thrown at it. The zero camber profile makes presses and rail riding a breeze, however when you throw it on edge it can still rail a turn. Completely twin in shape and stance and a damn durable sintered base, the Paxson can take on large tables, street rails, and park rail beatings time and time again. Also good to note that Slash is rider owned and operated. Coming from the brain of Gigi Ruf and additional input from Johnnie Paxson, you know they make boards right given they're years of knowledge and experience.
