The guys at Salomon are well aware of the fact that on the mountain, we spend most of our time skinning up. Combined with a hard boot splitboarding kit, the Premiere is hard to beat if you plan on spending long days out there, looking for the best performance on your ascent. The down side has to be its weight, adding the assembling hardware of the 4 parts. Also, the waist width is something to consider: riders with smaller feet 26,2 cm (3,31 in) for the 157cm board won’t feel too comfortable at initiating turns or looking for the boards torsion on groomed snow. Nevertheless, its medium flex makes it a forgiving board that feels really comfortable shredding wide powder turns.
