Is my board “shred ready” when I buy it?

All Slash boards are ready to ride straight out of the package. All boards are tuned and factory-waxed, so that you can get right down to business as soon as you leave the shop.

How or where can I find a dealer to purchase Slash products?

Simple, just click on our Authorized Dealer locator, follow the required locator prompts, and let our site’s robots do the searching for you.

How do I know what size board is right for me?

The only way to know for sure is through experience. You just have to try different shapes and lengths until you figure out what is right for you. But everyone has to start somewhere, and there are a few easy guidelines you can follow to get off on the right foot. The first depends on the type of riding you want to do. If you plan on doing mostly freestyle riding, that is, hitting booters, jibs, and pipes, you will want to ride a shorter board. For more of a freeride, that is, first tracks through twelve inches of pow, a slightly longer board is typically suitable.

I have a bigger foot. Do I need a wider board?

It all depends. With most boots these days being more low profile, and bindings offering toe and heel ramps, you really do not need a wide board unless you are over a size 11.5 boot (U.S.). Typically, wide boards start at a 26.0 cm waist width and go wider as the length goes longer. Again, get fitted properly at your local Authorized Slash Dealer to get more of a custom set up and decide if a wide or standard width board is best for you.

Do you have any pointers on how to set up my bindings?

Binding adjustment is an art form, not a science. You may have to try every stance adjustment possible before you dial in the perfect stance for the type of riding you prefer. Sometimes you may have different set ups based on the type of conditions you are riding on any given day, as well as the type of board you are riding, so there is no one perfect answer. You just have to experiment until you reach a spot of total happiness.

Do you make custom boards or sizes?

No, we currently do not offer custom graphics or sizes due to the complexity and expensive price of setup tools.

What is my board’s factory edge angle?

All Slash boards come with a 90 degree factory edge angle. You may adjust the edge angle to tune the board to your riding style or local conditions. Answer

Should I de-tune the tip and tail edges?

Slash boards come lightly de-tuned from the factory. It is not mandatory to de-tune your board more, but if you feel the tip or tail of the board is still catchy, you may de-tune further using sand paper or a file.
