Being bought in Japan, I highly doubt it's fake, and there are so many "Japan only" products here in Japan, I suspect it's one of them and will rarely come up in search engines in English, rather in Japanese [emoji106]
That's the board however with a different colour scheme

tokyo_dom Most likely it isnt fake. As some of the others said here - there isnt enough money in making a copy of a relatively unknown board (let alone to make a different colourscheme). I would say snowboard manufacturers love Japan since the RRP for SB gear is so high here. Wouldnt put it past them to create a special colorway for them.

Even if it isnt on that page, as well as being quite likely a Japan-specific model/design, it might also have been overstock from a rental market design. Especially if you bought it cheap from London Sports like i mentioned to you in your last thread.
Actually the graphic is similar to this one

However the colours are totally different

Guess its probably not a fake board

Btw it was purchased at Kanda Cheap in Tokyo

Does anyone know of any other way to get in contact with Salomon regarding this potentially fake board?
Most larger companies produce japan specific decks that are usually softer, shorter and have a smaller ww for Asian riders .
That's probably what it is.

Manicmouse Sometimes manufacturers change the design after a small run because they aren't happy with it.
