We reviewed this board in pretty tough conditions with low light and driving wet snow, and to be fair it held it's own.

The Salomon Huck Knife is an award winning and highly regarded freestyle stick, but it does need total concentration and to be ridden hard to get them maximum out of it.

It is a true twin, with a quad camber profile. This gives all the characteristics of true camber, but with a tiny bit of rocker on the nose and tail.

The camber seems pre-loaded for great pop and is helped by Salomon's popstar boosters, which are carbon stringers designed for maximum pop. The camber is also great for locking in those edges for carving on groomers. Turn initiation was good, but we felt it could be a bit catchy if concentration wavered.

The Huck Knife is also good for riding hard and fast down groomers and along those annoying flat parts where you envy skiers with their silly poles. But, not enough float for powder and forget about riding this board with tired legs in spring slush.

The Park is where the Huck Knife really comes alive and is awesome on boxes and really locks in on rails. Salomon have incorporated EQ RAD which they claim are equaliser and radial lines blended together for the perfect balance of agility and fun.

Make no mistake, this is an aggressive freestyle board that needs to be treated with respect, but tame it like a dog and it may just be your new best friend.
