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

John Yeo owns this product
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!

Solid advice
5 /5
Had the experience to express the manufacture’s logic and literature into how it applies in the field. Understood what I was looking for and gave me picks that I was already eyeing up and some I haven’t even known to consider. Which was great bc it ended up being a board I liked from afar but didn’t know it fitted my criterion. I’m stoked!

Hunter was so helpful in steering me in the right direction for which skis and boots would be best for me. I was feeling overwhelmed with all the choices, and he gave me three great options and explained them as well, even sending me a video of him explaining to help me understand better. Thanks so much!!

I've been looking for new skis + bindings for over a year now. I'd narrowed down my search to two pairs and couldn't decide which one was better for me. Luke was very responsive, asked questions about current setup, my skiing ability, and provided recommendations for skis, bindings, and boots. He picked the same top two skis I'd been looking at (without knowing) and helped me narrow down the choice to one! I feel way more confident in my purchase of new skis and bindings and can't wait for next winter!

I had come into the idea of purchasing skis with very little knowledge. I believe Nate did a great job at guiding me in the right direction and giving me the items that fit my style. He took all my suggestions into account and helped me so much. He was patient and gave advice and was overall very helpful and nice. I hope others buy from Nate as well!
