The Salomon Assassin Wide Snowboard relegates your quiver of different boards to dusty basement storage with its snappy freestyle flex, balanced twin shape, and Rock Out Camber conquering everything from waist-deep days in the trees to forty footers in the park. Designed for the rider seeking a board that can handle virtually anything, the Assassin is an all-terrain freestyle killer destined to turn the entire mountain into a gigantic terrain park. This particular version is wider than standard, giving those with bigger boots the enhanced stability and width needed for lay out swift carves and stomp heavy landings. The Assassin has always been a board that could destroy anything on the mountain, but it really came into its own as a deck for bringing your tricks to natural terrain features and waist-deep powder. We'd chalk this up to a balanced twin shape and Rock Out Camber, which gives you the responsive carves and energetic feel of camber, but with extra float to ensure you're not helplessly submerged on powder days. This profile is entirely flat between the bindings, transitioning to camber under each binding, then uplifts with rocker at the tip and tail. Ultimately, it delivers the best of both camber and rocker, ensuring the Assassin is ready for anything on the mountain. Maximizing the pop, the Aspen Select core and Popster Eco Booster (i. e. bamboo rods) create a lively feel with tons of snap. ABC GreenRoll construction (stands for Advanced Bamboo Construction), replaces as much plastic and harmful materials with snappy natural additives of bamboo and basalt, along with Royal Cork rails along the sidewalls. This results in a board that's much friendlier on the environment, as well as one that's extremely snappy and smooth across a wide variety of riding environments.

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
