RIDER: Javi Barro
This is without no doubt, the ideal board for Pyrenean snow conditions. Reactive on the tail, with a fast base to perform on vertical lines. The rocker in the nose makes for smooth turns on soft snow. It is very reactive on short turns and it feels good while pressing on the tail. It is shorter than other boards in its category with a reduced core, and the magne traction improves traversing on hard snow. An excellent splitboard!
When you go out on the mountain you never know what you’ll find; that’s not a problem if you’re on the Solution, as you know you’ll have all you need on any terrain or condition, mostly when facing one of those “Pyrenean Assortment” days, with all kinds of snow in a single day. We were happy to see a lighter model than last year’s, although it may have lost a bit of its solidness, we enjoyed the easiness on short turns leaning on the tail. Its blunt nose is gold: floats well and is stable when riding steeps at high speed. A splitboard to go for the big.
