I can't recommend the Speedway hard enough.  It's the best all-around board I have ever ridden.  It takes a few days to break in, but, once you do, it's just incredibly good - super damp, but lifeless at all, and so precise.  I think that C/FX fibre must be magical because the Speedway is both lively and super damp at the same time, which I would have said makes no sense before this board.

Looking for speedway specs... you guys all love the magical reverse taper boards now huh. This seems to be happening more and more. Same thing two days ago when I was looking at specs on a nidecker board. Looked at three or 4 sources and they all had mismatched info. If I didn't have @zuzupopo I'd be hulksmash

Since we're talking about Salomon, does anyone know where their boots come from? I have a suspicion and hoping it is what I'm tinkin it might bea.

Haha, I checked the speedway specs because of Lonz post and saw the same reverse taper specs. I’m surprised no one  corrected it.

we don't care about the reverse taper... we only look the sidecut specs

Speedway is hands down the best radius for antigravity uphill carving evr

Just snagged a 165 Speedway for 50% off. Looks like they still have some left

You're going to love it. 

It has a ton of carbon in it, so it will be quite stiff at first and will take a little while to break in.  My advice is to focus on breaking the tail it quickly by rocking back and flexing into it tripod style when you inevitably take it carpet boarding. Once it breaks in, the tail is not overly stiff and has lots of pop.  Between that and the tightening radius off the back end, it feels really good finishing turns (Salomon's ad copy just speaks to it having quadratic sidecut, but you can visually perceive that it's quite progressive).

Thanks for the tip. I'm stoked to get on this thing. It's been on my list for a while, but definitely got motivated when I heard it was dropped from the line. I imagine it will make a comeback at some point. I think they dropped the Sick Stick for a season or so and it's back. I've got a Sick Stick split, which I like. Now I just need to figure out what goes and what stays in the quiver, hmmm.

gotta say, in fairness to the poor bastard at evo who has to transcribe this crap we all use, a trip over to zuzupopo shows that in addition to not listing sidecut, salomon put tail width before tip width in their catalog
