The Stranda Shorty is one of those all mountain splitboards that are great to explore the mountain enjoying every terrain and snow conditions. The most striking feature at first glance is a super generous rocker below the nose, which provides excellent float and lets you ride comfortably on irregular or crusty snow. Compared to last year’s model, the nose has been reinforced with alu-stringers in order to reduce vibration. It is indeed a great improvement that solves the one thing we didn’t appreciate on last year’s variables: considerable vibration on the nose when riding on hardpack or irregular snow. The result is a much more solid and stable splitboard than the previous Shorty model. Speaking of its behavior, an excellent balance between flex and torsion guarantees a highly intuitive turn initiation, agile to ride changing from edge to edge, both on short and wide turns. The Shorty is the ultimate tool to do whatever you want on a splitboard: riding big lines where maximum precision and control is required, or looking for slashes on deep powder days.
