A splitty for chicks. Narrower waist, more sidecut and a slightly softer flex pattern provide performance and compromise nothing. The long arcing freeride-style flex delivers a smooth, fast ride through the full gamut of winter conditions. Designed to provide power and drive off the tail for extra speed and energy through turns, the Brandywine crushes powder, crud, hardpack, and wind crust at fall-line speeds. A good choice for backcountry riders, guides, and boarders whose style is drawn to long arcing turns and straight lining runouts or multi-day trekkers looking to maximize skinning efficiency without sacrificing downhill performance.
- Sublimated nylon topsheet brings durability and keep your board looking sharp.
- Quadraxial glass layers run in 4 direction for a responsive, torsionally stiff feel
- Vertically laminated aspen and poplar woodcore with maple wood stringers create a light, responsive ride.
- 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.
Sandwich and combination construction is generally used for big freeride-style skis while the lighter structural cap type of construction is more commonly found on cross-country skis.
