Korua Escalator Split Plus 2021/22
Whether it’s powder or old pressed snow, the Escalator Split Plus is designed for a power-saving ascent in alpine terrain, without compromising downhill performance. This extremely light splitboard seeks long adventures deep into the backcountry. The board has a directional, slightly tapered shape, setback and a float camber profile to provide substantial lift. Two extra edges on the inside and a split-specific flex pattern offer perfect grip in climb-mode and when crossing icy passages. The nose holes secure our U-Hook skin mounting system and the nose notch prevents hang ups in the skin track. It features Union clips, nose and tail hooks and the Voile insert pattern is compatible with all common splitboard bindings.
Size tested: 162
The Korua Escalator Plus is the most versatile splitboard within the brand ‘s line. At 2,8 kg for the 162cm model, its light weight is one of its strong features, turning it into a splitboard that invites you to go further in the backcountry thanks to the considerable amount of energy you can save. On the other hand, with a directional shape, traditional camber, and a long nose rocker, the Escalator Plus, is a splitboard that behaves impeccably in all snow conditions. From deep powder sessions, to those days where you need a maximum of control and grip on mixed and hardpack snow. A solid, reactive splitboard, very agile from edge-to-edge thanks to a narrow waist. It’s certainly one of the most adaptable splitboards we have tested over the past few years, and definitely one of the best options for all-mountain riders seeking versatility for their missions. A sure bet for weight-weenies eager to speed up on ascents.
