Borealis Viking 2018-19

 
 

DESCRIPTION

The Viking Split from Borealis Snowboards is an all-mountain directional board that will take you from the deepest lines to the greatest natural backcountry freestyle pillows. Its Skim Rocker (flat zones between the bindings + front and back rocker) combined with Dual Sidewaves (added contact points on the sidecut) offer the best of both worlds: perfect float and agility in powder and flawless grip on hard snow or ice.
Tree runs, icy couloirs, lips, pillows, powder fields – it can manage it all. The Viking Split is more focused on backcountry freestyle than its sibling the Arcane. The centered stance and easy medium flex make it more accessible and versatile. The Volcanic Strips make sure that the board is responsive-enough in when riding down. Its Forest Core, made from FSC-certified woods is light and snappy. Lightened at the tip and tail, it reduces swing weight to offer better control when freestyling in the backcountry.

The Viking means fun on the mountain. A board built to make the most of your array of tricks on your favorite playground thanks to its centered stance, but that will not let you down on an icy couloir. The Slim Rocker combined with Dual Sidewaves offers great floatability and swiftness on deep snow, while it remains stable and solid on challenging snow conditions. A medium flex makes the Viking a great board for versatile riders, capable of performing really well on sketchy terrain and on the deepest powder.
