The Assassin has earned itself a reputation as being one of the best performance snowboards on the market. It's combination of freeride power and control with the feel of a freestyle board make it the perfect choice for the all-terrain rider. However good the Assassin is though, you're always going to get that rider that wants more, more response, more power and more control. Step forward the new Assassin Pro. With its upgraded construction, this truly stunning snowboard really does push all terrain performance to the next level.
Sharing the same innovative twin tip chassis as the standard Assassin, the Pro retains all the all-terrain performance that made that makes the Assassin so popular. This state of the art balanced shape features extended contact points at the tip and tail, to deliver class leading levels of float without compromising the ride anything nature of the board. Now once again as per the standard board, the pro utilises the same RockOut camber profile and Equaliser Rad side-cut. This combination creates a board that carves like its on rails, floats like a powder board and spins like a jib stick.
Now it's once you get to construction where you start to see the difference between the standard Assassin and the Pro. The standard boards Aspen Select core is replaced with the responsive Popster Eco Booster Ghost Green core. This lightweight wood core combines aspen and paulownia with bamboo rods to create a powerful and poppy flex through the length, stepping up the boards performance a notch. Now add to this the mid density Bi-Ax glass stringers to give the board a slightly more playful feel and the Gunslinger sidewalls for quicker response, and you have everything in place to create stunning performance whilst still retaining a more user friendly ride. Finally, the Gallium infused EG sintered base delivers a super-fast glide.
