Another of the pleasant surprises in this year’s test, and one of the most fun splitboarding sessions we’ve had in a while, that’s the way it should be: splitboarding equals fun. Despite not being able to test it on a good foot of freshies, we made the most of the available conditions, we opened our mind and we prepared ourselves for a totally different kind of riding. With a 287 mm wide board, the last thing you expect from it is to flow from edge to edge. Obviously, that’s not what the board has been designed for, but the flat camber helps and the result is more than decent. It was a warm spring day and the best was yet to come. A couple of corn snow runs were enough to realize how reactive it is on short, quick turns. For sure, it’s not a big-mountain board, but it’d certainly do the job on almost any powder day in the backcountry. A really fun splitboard for any type of rider who wants to give his riding another twist, or add a deep powder gun to his quiver.
