Coming later than many companies like Line Skibards, Canon, Groove, Klimax, and others, Salomon Snowblades made a hit, mostly due to their marketing reach. In the early years they made some pretty awesome skiboards such as the SB9 (84cm) & SB10 (99cm) with wide body, wood core, metal adjustable ski boot bindings and great performance. Then they evolved into slimmer snowblade models with profiles like 100/80/90mm) like the MiniMax (99cm), Propellor (83cm), Buzz (99.9 cm), Buzz (90 cm), Grom (60cm) for kids, minimax (99cm), minirace (99cm), miniverse 90cm) as well as new graphics in following years. Most of these models had plastic non-release bindings, but in later years they started mounting with salomon ski release bindings.
Salomon snowblades were some of the most popular for years mostly because they had the widest distribution so more people were exposed to them. While they did a great job of promoting the sport of skiboarding in general, the construction of their later models were foam core which tended to break down quickly resulting in wobbling and chatter at speed. This caused a bad reputation for skiboards in general. While there were and are now more high performance models available many people assumed these weren’t any better than what they had tried.
Here are a few of the most popular models:
