Below is a brief overview of all the 2020 Slash snowboards.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2019-20 season, and then any 2019 models that don't return with a 2020 version.
Then I'll look at each board and put them into the categories where I see them best fitting.
New 2020 Slash Snowboards
The new boards for 2019-20 are:
2019 Slash Snowboards Not Returning
All 2019 models are returning with a 2020 version. Some subtle name changes, but none actually exiting.
- The Splitboard, the Brainstorm Linehiker (2019 model) has been renamed as simply Linehiker
- The Narwal Floater (2019) and Narwal Straight (2019) have been renamed as simply Floater and Straight
All 2020 Slash Snowboards by Category
I have categorized Slash's 2019-20 boards below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as what Slash labels them as.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
SLASH BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
SLASH PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
SLASH ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
There isn't a Slash board that strictly fits this category, IMO, though the Brainstorm, or even the Happy Place could be used for this style of riding for sure.
SLASH AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
There isn't a Slash board that strictly fits this category, IMO, though the ATV could be used for this style of riding.
SLASH ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
SLASH AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
SLASH FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
SLASH POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
SLASH SPLIT BOARDS
SLASH YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2020 Slash snowboards.
Still just a small line, but has expanded from 8 boards to 10 for 2020. And had gone from 5 to 8 between 2018 and 2019 - so they're line is now twice as big as it was for 2018 models. This is parly because Slash almost went under, but managed to survive and are now starting to create new boards again. Good to see.
I had the privilege of riding the Brainstorm, Happy Place & ATV in 2020 models - which was great as I hadn't ridden the trio for a couple of years. I will publish my updated reviews of those throughout the year. For all Slash snowboard reviews on Snowboarding Profiles, check out the link below.
