Borealis Viking 15-16

 
 

DESCRIPTION

The Viking Split is a versatile splitboard which easily adapts to most environments. Its Skim Rocker offers the best of both worlds: perfect floatation and response in deep powder and reliable edge hold on hard snow and ice thanks to its Dual Sidwaves added to the sidecut. Forests, icy lines, pistes, powder fields, backcountry freestyle… nothing is an obstacle for the Viking. Its Basaltech Quadrax UL construction considerably reduces weight of the skis whilst ascending and its Carbon Power Beams offer a rigid-enough feel to transform your skis in the best all-mountain board out there. It is light, agile and versatile.

A freeride specific board, to ride down fast lines on deep snow. Excellent floatability thanks to the Skim Rocker. Flat rocker between bindings and on the nose and tail. It takes a while to get used to it when you first ride it on groomed slopes due to the Dual Sidewaves, as they round the turn forcing you to change edges on wide turns, but it still performs really well on hard pack. Carbon fiber adds stability at high speed, but also stiffness, so we thinks it lacks a bit of torsion and pop. A super fun board to make the most of powder days.
