A true all-mountain board that eats powder in the morning, stays composed through afternoon chop, and rips groomers later after the lift close. Its directional freeride shape makes it a smooth, stable rider, while the hybrid rocker adds to its versatility. Early rise in the nose and tail gives it easy turn initiation and amazing float while the traditional camber underfoot adds to stability and edge hold. With minimal taper, the Backcountry Split has power to arc out an edge, and lets you get playful when you're feeling it – to land or ride switch.
- Sublimated nylon topsheet brings durability and keep your board looking sharp.
- Triaxial carbon glass layers keep the weight down and add to the playfulness.
- Vertically laminated aspen and poplar wood core with maple wood stringers create a light, responsive board.
- Early rise in the tip and tail combined with a traditional camber underfoot provides stability and turning ease in all snow conditions.
- Classic freeride shape with moderately long sidecut for maximum uphill efficiency and edge hold in firm and variable snow.
- Minimal taper provides energy and power off the tail for high speed turns and descents.
- Rubber Foil dampening reduces chatter when riding fast on hardpack.
- Durable, impact-resistant UHMW polyethylene sidewalls.
- Tough Rockwell 48 steel edges are easy to tune.
- Durasurf 4001 sintered base is fast and very durable.
