Salomon has gained huge traction with the Derby in the last few seasons as this new concept of powder board has become more and more popular, even with other brands.
The Derby is a downsizable snowboard that has been designed to ride short like a skateboard in powder, with a surf inspired feeling. Even our 6ft tall, 90kg tester found the 147cm Derby floated like a dream and was also really fun, stable and agile when cruising around the rest of the slopes.
Having the shorter profile makes this board great fun for riding sidehits and carving around the piste when the conditions warm up as well, making the Derby surprisingly versatile for such an unusual shape.
If you're an intermediate rider or a pro and you want to enhance your experience of riding powder and like shorter more playful boards then make sure you check out the Salomon Derby.
