The Ramen Express is the brand new Borealis splitboard for this season, and the French brand’s choice to satisfy the more creative riders, looking to bring their bag of tricks beyond their local resort. The combination of a twin-tip shape with a light setback, traditional camber, plus a sweet flex and torsion, result in a board with a clear freestyler approach. Regarding its performance and behavior, the Ramen Express is all you could expect from a classic directional twin shape; a playful splitboard to ride switch, to shred wind lips or to throw your favorite tricks. Despite a centered stance, it provides enough floatability on deep powder. Additionally, its performance on more demanding terrain and variable snow conditions is pretty surprising, feeling most stable if you apply enough pressure on it. It’s certainly a more versatile board than you would expect. It is recommended for advanced riders who enjoy next level BC freestyle.
