SPLITSURFER MODEL OPTIONS

2019-20 “Classic” Model Splitsurfer (includes powsurf & mounting hardware)

$749.99

Classic Splitsurfer – $749.99

  • Weighs about 1-1.5 lbs heavier than a standard solid powsurfer
  •  Includes Voile toe and heel inserts & Karakoram clips
  • Upgradeable to Spark R&D components for extra cost
  • Reinforced with carbon
  • 3-dimensional sintered p-tex base

The “Classic” splitsurfer weighs only about 1lb-1.5lb more than our solid powsurfers. The Ultralight Ascent Binding’s we offer are very light and extremely compact, stashing easily into any size of pack or even some pockets for the surf back down. These ascent bindings are for uphill travel only. Our 2019-20 Classic Splitsurfer comes stock with Karakoram Ultra clips and voile Toe/Heel pieces. They can also be configured with Spark R&D hardware to match our Ultralight Ascent Spark R&D binding or the full Spark binding. Cost for the board is $749.99 and does not include climbing skins and ascent bindings.

Climbing Skins

The Voile climbing skins are the best fit for our splitsurfers. Most other skins WILL NOT FIT. We offer the Voile climbing skins and tail clips for sale with our boards.  Voile skins with tail clips = $185  

Available Board Shape & Size Options

We personally recommend the 150cm Flying Carpet 3D shape as it is a very versatile board and lends itself well to the ascent as well as the descent. If you’d prefer a 140cm length we recommend the 140cm Flying Carpet 3D shape for best results.

Other available shapes for 2020:

140cm Slasher 3D shape

140cm Barracuda 3D shape

150cm Barracuda 3D shape

140cm Flying Carpet 3D shape

150cm Flying Carpet 3D shape

OTHER BACKCOUNTRY ASCENT OPTIONS

Our Splitsurfers are a solution that will work great for some riders, but unnecessary for others. It really depends on the terrain that you frequent and the type of access you have. For tours that cover a lot of terrain and travel through very deep snow the split-surfer is a great solution. However, often times shorter roadside hikes and smaller sections of terrain can be lapped more easily on a boot pack for more bang for your buck. Use of Verts (special style of snowshoe available in our web-store) is the most efficient for these areas and use of a split-surfer would result in a lot of time changing modes and fiddling with equipment, whereas with a solid powsurfer and Verts you would spend that time riding and having fun.
