Designed and built by snowboarding icons Wolfgang Nyvelt and Takaharu Nakae, this snowboard rides like nothing else on planet earth. It’s unique blend of tapered directional shape, powder camber, and medium flex make it incredibly nimble without sacrificing float or speed. 

Blending years of shaping experience with the latest technology, the Salomon HPS Takaharu Nakai features Salomon’s new Ghost Green Core combined with Ghost Carbon Stringers and Popster profiling to make a snowboard that feels totally alive! 

The Takaharu Nakai blends camber between the feet with a powder rocker in the nose. The result is a board that feels precise with great edge hold but also floats easily even in the deepest snow!  When combined with the Popster core profiling and the carbon stringers it all comes together as a lively snowboard with just the right amount of flex to be fun but with all the attributes of a serious backcountry slayer. 

Salomon have positioned the rider in the center of the radial sidecut making the Takahura Nakai a carving machine on hard snow and enabling fast nimble riding which makes it ideal for tree runs, banked slaloms, and technical steep lines.

On the underside Salomon have used their high end Sintered EG base material for a lightning fast ride! 

Finally, to deal with all the vibration and pressure of riding at speed the Takaharu Nakai snowboard uses cork damping and bamboo in the rails which enables the snowboard to manage unwanted chatter and improve overall edge contact.

For all mountain riders who want a hugely capable snowboard that rips everything from pillow lines through to euro carves, the Takaharu Nakai ticks every box. It’s precise, camber dominant profile, ample float, and responsive core make it extremely versatile and just epic fun to ride. Ideal for snowboarders who want to slay pow in the morning and carve massive lines across the piste in the afternoon! 

Features

  • FLEX RATING - MEDIUM
  • SHAPE: Tapered directional - Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves floatation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
  • PROFILE: Powder Camber - Camber between feet for carving and precision, and huge rocker on nose for floatation in very deep powder
  • SIDE CUT:  Radial - Created from a perfect circle, Radial is the classic sidecut for consistent response forward and switch.
  • WIDTH: Mid Wide
  • BASE: Sintered EG - Engineered for a super fast glide in everything from fresh pow to sticky spring snow. Sintered material provides superior wax retention, Gallium strengthens impact resistance and the Electra finish gives a turbocharged glide.

MORE TECH:

  • ABC Wrapper: More pop, less plastic! ABC Wrapper is a patented process using structural bamboo veneers to reduce fiberglass and resin content in each board by 40%. Traditional ABS sidewalls get the axe — replaced instead by waterproof Bamboo rods.
  • BA MD: Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
  • Ghost Carbon stringers: Carbon stringers are sewn into a triax layer for reactive pop and stability at speed, and easy maneuverability when you’re keeping it mellow.
  • Popster: Shaped woodcore profile with strategically placed variation of thickness. It maximizes the natural snap and powerful pop of wood. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
  • Ghost Green Core: Ghost Green Core components have been selected and designed to optimize pop and reduce weight while utilizing sustainable attributes of a super light polawania wood.
  • Fine stone finish: Our fine stone finish is particularly efficient on our Sintered EG base, speed up in powder or softer snow conditions.
  • All mountain Edge Bevel: From detuning the tip and tail to a 1-degree edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut, back to a 2-degree bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
  • Bamboo + Cork Rails: The liveliness of eco friendly bamboo mixed with cork composite, for the best direct feel and dampening ride in the industry.
