Sure, you like to go touring for the untracked snow, earned turns, and solitude, but the freestyle junkie in you still likes to get rad when you're out there. The Zelix Splitboard is Venture's freestyle stick that loves to catch air, but can still charge technical lines like one of its freeride cousins. The directional twin shape balances swing weight so you can spin off natural features and allows you to ride and stomp switch. However, it does have a slightly tapered tail and setback stance to maintain drive and float. The Straightline profile places flat underfoot to provide stability and edge hold on hardpack and steeps, with rocker at the tip and tail for float and forgiveness. Precise craftsmanship and attention to detail prevents sloppiness in the seam so the board rides more like a solid snowboard, allowing you to shred technical lines with confidence. Aspen sourced from within 100 miles of Venture's Silverton factory keeps the core lightweight, and ash and poplar stringers maintain strength and snappiness. Triax glass gives it pop and responsiveness while maintaining torsional flex so you can hold a mean edge. The castor bean topsheet reduces the need for petroleum-based products to boost eco-friendliness, and the sintered base is fast and hard to resist damage from hidden rocks.
