Borealis Koi 2019/20
You dreamt about it, here it is. The Koi is finally available in a split version. Equipped with new Phantom Clips, the Koi Split allows you to explore every corner of the mountain: from snow-covered forests to the highest peaks, everything is possible. Its DNA bioplastic topsheet is very sturdy and allows snow to slide without sticking to the surface (you don’t want to carry extra weight up the mountain). The Powder Camber (rocker-camber) allows you to float on the deepest snow whilst offering a dynamic and efficient rider on hard snow. Its Sidewaves 2.0 will bring you all the necessary grip on icy surfaces or in steep couloirs. Built with an IS7200 sintered base, Carbon Power Beams for added response and our Powder Paw vibration dampener, this premium splitboard is the ideal choice for riders looking for quality gear for their next expeditions. New for 2021: new ultra-premium construction.
Size tested: 156cm
The Borealis Koi features the perfect balance between rocker and traditional camber. The wide and long rockered nose will keep you afloat on the deepest days, while the camber between bindings gives you an outstanding grip when conditions are far from perfect and we want to carve hard. We were surprised by how fast it’s on the edge to edge transition while carving. At the same time, the short tail helps when doing quick and tight turns.The Koi is a perfect choice for those riders looking for maximum floatability on powder days and amazing performance for carving.
