Long, light and stiff, the Speedway is all about, well... speed. Its directional, tapered shape and uncambered front section give it a floaty, loose feel when charging steep powder, while a more traditional camber under the back foot lets you carve up groomers. Quadratic sidecut provides edge-to-edge agility, while a stiff, lightweight wood/carbon build with ABS sidewalls let you push it to the max. Salomon recommends sizing up around 5 cm over your typical board length, but don't worry, speed demons: an ultralight honeycomb composite tip insert ensures you won't feel the extra length in swing weight.
