The new Premiere S/Lab is the perfect splitboard to increase your vertical count in the backcountry. The narrower and lighter (400gr each) skis are key for saving energy on the ascent, and if combined with an AT boot kit is definitely the most efficient choice.The Premiere S/Lab is a splitboard we would recommend for riders with a more alpine approach to splitboarding, where performance during the ascent is crucial, although its new shape and profile (Backseat Camber) make it easier to ride in any snow condition than the previous model. With a carbon construction, Salomon not only has obtained a much lighter board, it has also improved its response and stiffness compared to its predecessor. Moreover, it comes with custom cut Pomoca skins.
