Salomon Snowboards Split Splitboard
Great for the backcountry
Difficult to master
This splitboard from Salomon is based on the legendary design of the Derby snowboard. Most splitboards have a directional shape, but this board keeps you centered, allowing you more control and stability, without sacrificing any grip or speed. The Rocket Science shaping allows you to ride a much smaller board for less fatigue.
Split the board down the middle and you have a pair of back country skis that give you the same combo of control, speed and stability while out on the flats.
From the leaders in splitboards, Jones brings you Hovercraft. This board is the master of the backcountry, and its short length and shape give you more control and makes the board incredibly manoeuvrable, allowing you to skim across the snow and through the trees effortlessly.
The board has reinforced plates for extra durability, and the skis perform as well as the board itself once you split it.
Hopefully this will help you make an informed decision about buying your first or your next splitboard.
