The Nahaul is Slash's take on the new generation of shaped freeride boards and is the big mountain weapon of choice for Manuel Diaz. However unlike most of its competitors, Slash has designed the Nahual to be more than just a hard charging powder board. Thanks to its innovative directional twin chassis, not only does it deliver a floaty and stable high speed ride, it also delivers a control and balance that you just don't expect with this type of board, enabling riders to take their freestyle riding to the backcountry.
The Nahual is more than just a quiver board, with its flat profile and Ultimate Traction edges this is one board that is equally happy charging over the rest of the mountain, so if you just want a great performing snowboard for blasting around you really won't find this wanting in any way, shape or form.
Internally Slash doesn't hold back when it comes to the Nahual's construction, it's jam packed with state of the art design and materials, underlining its performance credentials. Heading this up is the lightweight Powder core, this combines paulownia and poplar with beech stringers, creating a feather weight but lively and dynamic foundation to the board.
To this Slash add structural layers formed from a combination of Bi-Ax glass on the lower band and Tri-Ax on the upper. This gives the Nahual the optimum torsional flex for riding fast without really compromising the boards freestyle characteristics. But that's not all, in addition Slash also utilise their Carbonbon carbon bracing and the carbon/ kevlar Landing Strip technology. These add carbon cross braces between the base and lower structural layers and carbon/kevlar strips running from the nose and tail to the inserts and add another layer of pop and power to this stunning snowboard.
Finally the high speed sintered HD gives unrivalled glide no matter the conditions.
