2020 Upper Decks Park Boards: Salomon Gypsy

With Upper Decks, SNOWBOARDER is providing our readers with insights, images, and other details culled from putting a handful of new terrain park performers through their paces for five days of jibbing, jumping, and carving amongst the freestyle features of Aspen Snowmass, Colorado. Providing the action and impression of the top park boards in stores this fall are former Forum pro and prolific video part protagonist, Eddie Wall and 2019 MS Superpark Standout Emma Crosby alongside the SNOWBOARDER Editorial Staff. This is SNOWBOARDER's take on the Salomon Gypsy.

The Gypsy has been a staple in Salomon’s line up since 2010, and for good reason: as Desiree Melancon’s board of choice, the Gypsy strikes an ideal balance between response and playfulness. This means that when it comes to park laps, the Gypsy provides; it is stable for jumping and smooth for jibbing, plus its Quadrilizer sidecut can handle high-speed carves. Salomon’s Rock Out Camber profile contributes to this balanced board feel; it is flat between the bindings, cambered near the feet, and rockered on the tip and tail, a trifecta that combines stability, agility, and pressability and is perfect for the freestyle set. The carbon stringers of the Popster Booster core further enhance the Gypsy’s pop, so both olleing and pressing are energetic and easy. The bottom line is the Gypsy is a true all-around park performer.
