Salomon Ultimate Ride 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The Salomon Ultimate Ride felt to us like it took the Man’s Board, sort of twinned it out and gave it more camber.  It’s not a mellow ride and it’s for the aggressive rider that want’s a twin on effective edge but with a different nose and tail.

The ultimate ride is a lovely board, great design and interesting profile. In the review its mentioned it felt as hybrid sometimes, though it technically is a hybrid with the "quad camber" if you on the designated mounting points for the bindings, it will be very very slight rocker nose and tail, if you are a winder stance its full on camber. I have used my board up mountains in Scotland, in powder in Andorra and many times in a snow dome. If set back in pow its amazing, centered its a little more challenging. I have a 155 which i ride using either Salomon Quantum, Union Trice (North star) or Union Force binding with and either Salomon HiFi or ThirtyTwo TM-TWO boots. The board is not forgiving at all, but extremely powerful, responsive and stable. Really good in the park as well and for kickers with an amazing amount of pop. So why is it a love hate relationship...if you ride dome, the snow does not compact under your feet, soo if the snow is loose the quad camber makes the rider a little more challenging with it wanting to submarine. but i would assume the board was not designed for dome riding so cannot put this down to the board itself. in those circumstances i would change to my Salomon Assassin instead. Edge hold amazing, railing tuns amazing, pressing/buttering can be done as the nose and tail does break in a little bit...The metal bumpers are great though i have taken a knock to the rail which has caused the topsheet to delam, so not bullet proof. Bode Merrill is a great rider and this is a great board.
