Board: Salomon Assassin (2014)

How and where (which conditions) do you use it the most?
I use it everywhere and for everything, literally, as much park laps as freeride runs and on slopes too. My everyday board, to ride and teach.

What do you like the most about it?
Has a stable edge on slopes for my type of riding. It's easy to butter with and floats well in powder because of the softer nose and tail.

What could be better? Why?
It could be stiffer for even more stability and added pop





Review - Union Strata

I've used Union bindings for a few years (the Force model), I've loved them at first, then I didn't anymore and then I've changed for something new. That something new was the Bent Metal - Transfer, smaller discs, lower hi-back, softer and more progressive but with a great (and I really mean great!) response. I was happy again with my bindings, as I still am.
Two weeks ago (about one year after dropping the Union-Force for the Bent Metal-Transfer) I've had the chance to try the new Union-Strata.

First thing that popped out on a first glance was the ankle strap, thin and made of plastic/rubber but still with the typical rectangular minimal shape of almost all union ankle straps. Than I've noticed the base, wide and rubbery, and then the hiback, smaller than the Force model and more similar to the bent metal hibacks.

While testing them I got surprised with how well this binding feels and works. The nice floating sensation that comes from the minidiscs plus the rubbery base and straps doesn't come alone, with the Strata binding Union managed to merge good responsiveness and support to that floating feeling that I (and so much more of us) appreciate so much.

If you've tried the Bent Metal - Transfer before, than the Union - Strata will feel similar but more progressive (floating feeling) and even more responsive.

Just found this image in a random google search. Snowboard is about doing whatever you want and there is no writes or wrongs. Those "no grab zones" are there because those grabs don't punctuate on the important competitions because they're "ugly" or "easy". But please do it if you like it! #happyriding #truesnowboard
