Azhar Abdrakhmanova tested this product
It's pretty cool but also a bit quirky. They've tweaked the side cut - it's kind of flat and slightly weird, but it does a solid job in hard snow. It's not the ultimate choice for icy conditions, but it handles them better than you might expect. The cork section transitions to this black area, and the board doesn't rock... Read more
Ideal for
  • Enhanced playfulness in park and powder
  • Good high-speed stability
  • Good flotation in powder
Not ideal for
  • Limited number of inserts reduces versatility
  • Durability concerns with top sheet and paint

This board is a great pick for the intermediate to advanced rider looking for something reliable to ride on any given day. The Assassin is a versatile board that you can take pretty much anywhere on the resort. It runs a medium flex, but some additional features make it stand out. The two built-in carbon fiber forks in the tip and... Read more
Ideal for
  • Super versatile. Great one board quiver that can be taken from the park to the bowls.
  • Turns on a dime and is adaptable enough to make tight turns through trees or lay deep trenches.
  • Can take a beating. Whether in the park or through the early season rock fields, the base holds up through it all.
Not ideal for
  • Not the most powder friendly. Floats well enough, but knee deep snow is not the Assassin's friend.
  • Can start to get chattery when bombing at higher speeds (50+ mph)

Jonny S. owns this product
The Assassin is possibly the industry's most underrated snowboard. True all mountain domination that still allows for performance is deep snow and when jumping. The balance that this board has in that regard is unmatched. For the Salomon line its right between the Huck Knife and the Sick Stick, which for many riders is the exact rider profile of someone...

LEGEND OF A SNOWBOARD

Posted on Aug 29, 2023
I recently had the pleasure of riding the Assassin snowboard and I have to say, it's truly an amazing board. I've been using it for the entire season and I have yet to encounter any issues with its performance. One of the standout features of the Assassin is its forgiving flex. It felt great under my boots and provided the perfect amount of responsiveness while still being comfortable to ride on. I was able to easily navigate through different types of terrain and feel confident in my abilities on the board. Overall, I would highly recommend the Assassin to anyone looking for a reliable, high-performance snowboard. It's an absolute pleasure to ride and I can't imagine hitting the slopes without it. If you're in the market for a new snowboard, definitely give the Assassin a try. You won't be disappointed!

Great knowledge and immaculate vibes
5 /5
Spencer curated my first snowboard, boot, and binding set up. He took time to understand me, my skill level, and aesthetic and riding preferences before making any reccomendations. What struck me the most was that you can genuinely tell he wants to find the best for you! He welcomes your feedback and easily adapts your curations according to your concerns. On top of that, Spencer went above and beyond by crafting a video going through the items in my curation, their advantages, and drawbacks. He patiently answered all my questions, no matter how basic they seemed. By the end of our interaction, I felt more confident and knowledgable of my purchase. I can't recommend this guy enough. Now I'm geared up and ready!

Tyler was able to provide a multitude of great options for me to check out. Being someone of a large boot size it was hard finding any boots within a reasonable price range that fit size 13 and up. Tyler was able to provide me with the best options I had seen up to this point and I couldn't be happier with the purchase I made today.

Jamie was extremely helpful in helping me get to a better understanding of what I needed and what I was getting. Honestly, I believe I probably would've been lost trying to do all of this on my own. He provided plenty of options for gear as well as providing an informative and personalized video on his board, boots, and binding recommendations. He was responsive and was quick to tailor his suggestions as I provided additional information. He made my first experience with Curated very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. Honestly blew my expectations of what Curated was and how the process is working with an expert like Jamie. I would highly recommend working with him.
