All mountain budget 2020.pngThe traditional camber, early rise directional twin Sight from Salomon is a good, solid snowboard for beginner's looking to progress on the pistes and learn a few tricks, especially buttering and rails. It has a soft flex pattern so is pretty forgiving, but the directional flex and camber profile adds a touch of performance in turns and it actually offers a relatively stable ride and good edge hold, although at higher speeds and in precision, long arcing carves it starts to wash out a little. Learning to ride switch is a doddle on the Sight thanks to the twin shape and forgiving feel and the quadratic sidecut makes for easy turn initiation whichever way you choose to ride.

Intermediate and advanced riders won't find it particularly lively or playful but it has a decent amount of pop for boosting off rollers and exploring your first kickers in the park where the extruded base offers easy repairs if not outright speed.

If you venture off piste the Sight will provide enough float thanks to rocker on the tip and tail, again it's no bahnstormer but for picking off small side stashes of powder it'll do the job.

We think the Sight looks like a much higher end board, at least in terms of graphics with a lovely embossed mountain pattern on a black background and contrasting mustard colours setting it off nicely.

Overall the Sight is as easy to ride as you would expect from an entry level snowboard, it won't really excite the more accomplished rider but if you're just starting to explore the mountain it's a great option, making it our best budget snowboard for the 2020 season.
