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)

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!
