Desiree Melancon has been pushing the level of women's freestyle progression for the last few years and holding her own with otherwise all-male film crews. Her deck of choice for laying down clean tricks in the park and streets is the Salomon Women's Gypsy Snowboard. New for this season, the Gypsy sports a redesigned shape based off the freestyle-favorite Villain. Its mid-level flex brings a playful vibe for jibbing and jumping without feeling overly loose on the mountain, plus it's loaded with pop-enhancing features for heightened ollie power.
The Gypsy's freestyle domination starts with a Rock Out Camber profile, which is flat between the bindings for high-speed stability and smoothly stomped landings, with camber near the inserts for added response and edge hold, along with rockered tips for a bit of forgiveness and float. Popster core profiling maximizes the natural snap of the Aspen Select Core, making your ollies feel extra poppy without making the board feel stiff.
Slingshot carbon inlays (within the sidewall) enhance energy transfer for quick edge-to-edge transitions and snappier ollies. Pre-beveled Freestyle edges are ready to jib right out of the plastic, so you won't have to take a file to 'em in the garage. New for this season, the Gypsy's Quadralizer sidecut locks into long, drawn-out carves without feeling washy like a typical park deck. It's rounded out with a sintered base to give it the durability and speed required to withstand thrashings in the streets and clear bigger park jumps without worry.
