Splitboard Catalog 2013-14

 
 

DESCRIPTION

Here we are back again with the first issue of the 2013-14 season. Our yearly catalog features 38 different splitboard manufacturers. The splitboarding world keeps growing, that’s definitely a reality. Brands like Prior, Venture, Voile, Völkl, Jones, Burton, K2 that are already consolidated in the splitboard market keep offering new models, but also new brands like Olive, OZ, Kitten Factory, Sandy Shapes, and more, step up into the splitboarding market offering high quality products. Spark R&D, Karakoram, Voile, SP United, Ranger, Splisticks, K2 and Phantom have been pushing the splitboard bindings development further so now the customer has multiple options when choosing the bindings that fit best their riding style, even if you are riding with hardboots.

Four different climbing skins options to allow you to find the perfect mix between glide and grip, and two brands that are committed to improve the performance of the boots, such an important part of the equipment when you are out there in the backcountry. Deeluxe, introducing the new Summit boot, an excellent splitboard boot made of leather and Fitwell, with an improved version of the Backcountry boot.

We also introduced outerwear and gear in this catalog, as it’s a crucial part of the equipment to be dry, warm and safe in the mountains. Here’s a selection from brands that we trust and will not let you down no matter where you are: Grivel, Adidas eyewear, Norrøna, Patagonia and Outdoor Research.
But our first issue is not only a catalog, it features also different articles to make a more pleasant reading of it. Roman Jagl was finally able to realize his dream of crossing the Alps with his splitboard, Marshal Chupa offers his point of view in the Split-Art section and our most famous section and the one we are the most proud about: Around the world.
