GIGI RUF’S GENREDEFYING ALL TERRAIN FREESTYLE FUN MACHINE

It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say the Happy Place has wholly shifted the goalposts when it comes to lower-priced snowboards. With a spec list that reads like a pro model and a level of performance that isn’t too far behind, this utterly stunning snowboard embarrasses pretty much every other board in its price category. Built around a symmetrical twin tip shape, Slash calls the Happy Place a freestyle board, but the reality is, it’s so much more than that. Thanks to its class-leading performance, it delivers a ride out and about on the mountain that is nothing short of incredible, especially at its price. I guess that’s why over the years it’s taken multiple awards, including a prestigious Transworld Good Wood.

Rider Style
Basic Intermediate through to advanced riders looking for a high performing freestyle board that’s at home out and about the mountain.

Shape Overview
Utilising a unique twin tip platform, the Happy Place delivers a balanced freestyle friendly ride that ensures no matter what or where you ride, you’ll always feel like you know exactly what’s going on under your feet. However, the Happy Place is more than just a freestyle board. Thanks to its state of the art nose and tail profile it delivers excellent performance in the pow. But what really sets this board apart is how it rides on the piste. Its combination of progressive sidecut and Ultimate Traction edges, deliver a level of performance on groomers that will blow your mind. The progressive sidecut design blends multiple radii and smooth contact points for buttery turn initiation, edge-to-edge transition and edge hold. While the Ultimate Traction edges place a small counter radius (bump) in the middle of the board’s sidecut, improving edge hold without creating drag or strange edge grip.

Profile
One of the key contributors to the Happy Place’s stunning performance is the innovative 2nd generation Cam Rock profile. This steps up the board's performance and helps deliver that all-terrain versatility that has made it such a success. The floaty,c catch-free rocker at both the tip and tail, provides excellent float in the pow with confidence inspiring hook-free feel on rails and boxes. While flat zones just outside the insert packs, create a stable platform to load up for increased ollie power and pop. Finally, the traditional camber between the feet powers up the sidecut and adds response and stability.

Construction
Internally the Happy Place is jam-packed with some of the most advanced construction seen at this price point. Heading this up is the state of the art Pop core which is formed from durable poplar reinforced with both beech and spruce stringers. The beech strips are laid through the inserts from tip to tail for power transfer; while the sturdy spruce stringers run from just outside the inserts back out to the tip and tail increasing pop and precision. To this Slash then add structural layers created from a softer flexing Bi-Ax glass. This two-way weave of fibreglass with strands running every 90-degrees is more forgiving, easier to flex and highly versatile for all types of riding. Slash’s then add their Sweet Spot bracing which features two carbon fibre stringers stretching outward from the inserts to the contact points in both the tip and the tail. These increase pop, generate stronger edge hold and create a more playful ride.

Base
The Happy Place’s sintered base is fast, durable and requires less waxing. This higher spec base is unusual at this price point as most brands use a cheaper, low-density extruded material.
