Borealis Arcane 2018-19

 
 

DESCRIPTION

Awarded “2018 Best Big Mountain Splitboard” by Splitboard Magazine, The Arcane Split is one of the most technically-advanced boards of our collection. It was created for expert-level riders looking for a Big Mountain splitboard capable of taking them down the steepest and most abrupt terrain of high-altitude mountain. Both rigid and light, the Arcane is ultra-precise and amazingly responsive, even in the tightest couloirs. Its Blizzard Camber (long front rocker, camber between the bindings, shorter back rocker) and adapted tapered shape allow perfect powder float whilst maintaining power and stability when landing rocky ledges and in steep lines at high speeds. Its DNA plant-based bioplastic topsheet is ultra-resilient and prevents snow from stacking-up due to its special non-stick formula. It’s the favourite board of our team rider Clément Bochatay, who rides on the FWQ and FWT. It’s equipped with Karakoram® clips and hooks. The Arcane is also available as a snowboard version. The best choice for the best riders

The Arcane, last year’s winner in the Big Mountain category, is still one of the best options in the market for riders looking for exposed riding. A very stable, solid and reactive board, it’s just what you need on hard snow and extreme lines. The long sidecut radius combined with its camber results in a super powerful board for long wide turns at high speed, on any type of snow. The ultimate weapon for aggressive riders who demand precision and solidness in their riding, now available also on a smaller size (157cm).
