Description

Show Description

A true all-mountain splitboard that eats powder in the morning, stays composed through afternoon chop, and rips groomers after the lifts 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 the power to arc out an edge, and lets you get playful when you want to land or ride switch.

  • Graphics are designed by world-renowned Haida artist Clarence Mills.
  • Sublimated nylon topsheet brings durability and keeps your board looking sharp.
  • Quadraxial glass layers run in 4 directions for a responsive, long-lasting board that's torsionally stiff.
  • Vertically laminated aspen and poplar woodcore with maple wood stringers creates 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 conditions.
  • Minimal taper provides energy and power off the tail for high-speed turns and descents.
  • Rubber Foil dampening reduces the chatter that comes with riding fast on hardpack.
  • UHMW Polyethylene sidewalls improves durability and are very impact-resistant.
  • Rockwell 48 steel edges are very durable and easy to tune.
  • Durasurf 4001 sintered base is fast and very durable.
