The main thing you need to know about the 2010 North-manufactured Soleil board is that it has been specifically designed to meet the needs of women riders. This is a board that will allow all women riders to pull of some great new school freestyle tricks, or just have some fun during a freeride session.

The flex of this board has been specifically optimized for women riders. Women weigh less than men do, so North tweaked the board’s flex keeping this fact in mind. The board’s foot straps have also been designed keeping in mind that women weigh less than men and the fact that women have smaller feet. Last but not least, the Soleil board comes with stance options that are meant to cater to the needs of the women riders.

The 2010 Soleil is the type of board a woman rider would want to use at a professional, competitive level. In developing the Soleil board North took in the feedback provided by top female PKRA riders. Thus the manufacturer came up with a board that offers tons of pop, a board that makes throwing down the most progressive freestyle tricks a piece of cake.

The 2010 Soleil features G10 S-Bend FS fins that are fast, offer directional stability and pop. The best part is that these fins engage quicker after fast landings. The scoop rocker line of the 2010 Soleil will ensure you get the best performance in all conditions. In underpowered conditions, the board remains flat – which translates to early planning. In overpowered conditions the scoop bends – which translates to increased stability and control.

Why would you want to get the Soleil? You would want to get this board if you are a woman on the lookout for a properly good freestyle board specifically designed for women riders.

Don’t let the cutesy graphics fool you; this is a seriously good board.

The graphics are so funky on this one, it’s like a splash of color. Like the guys at North took some buckets of paint and started to throw pain on the board. There’s a splash of ping, which I particularly like, a splash of yellow, some...more
