Völkl Cashew Split 13-14

 
 

DESCRIPTION

The eagle on the deck is more than just a nice design: In the backcountry you need to find your perfect line – and having eyes like an eagle definitely helps! Once you have decided your route, the custom-fit skins are fast and easy to fix thanks to the unique Völkl Skin Pin System. Brand-new is the additional fixation of the skins at the tail of the board – two are better than one… As you feel every extra gram during the hike up the mountain, we built the Cashew Split as light as possible and equipped it with a No-Topsheet Construction and added Carbon reinforcements.

Once at the summit, you simply transform your touring skis into a board without any tools and in just a few steps! While cruising through the virgin powder, the Convex Powder Base offers you maximum float, and you will almost feel like you’re flying down to the valley. Looking for an authentic surf feeling in the snow? Just ride the board as a short tail on the very back position and enjoy the spray of your massive roosters. This season, the Cashew Split is also available in 155 that also perfectly suits for female powder junkies!

It became quite clear from the beginning that this would be the splitboard that would best suit my needs and characteristics. It is not a girl’s specific board, but it’s ideal for a woman, or anyone not too heavy. It feels well skinning up, it has a good grip, it’s light and easy to ensemble. It has a good torsion, which enables to chain turns easily, both on hard pack and groomed snow, and allows to turn fluidly even on steep terrain. It’s a splitboard with character, although easy to handle, but it lacks a bit of pop. It floats well on powder, and its stiff tail makes a comfy board on deep powder and mixed snow.

RIDER: Staff
Good news for female splitboarders; it is not a girl specific board, but it has the perfect specs for female riders. Last year we had the chance to test the Cashew and we were quite impressed by its performance. A 100% all-mountain, well balanced board. Its rocker profile makes a fun and lively board on powder, although it feels a bit slow while initiating the turns, and it’s missing some pop. A versatile board with a great finish; it’s the only 100% clean base board in the market thanks to an internal insert reinforcement system, which doesn’t go all the way down to the base.
