Prior Backcountry Splitboard

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Prior Backcountry splitboard gives self-propelled backcountry freeriders and explorers access to fresh untracked pow. Backcountry splitboard works in powder, crud, hardpack, crust-all winter snowpack. Hybrid rocker design features a rockered tip and tail combined with a subtle camber between the feet; tip and tail are reinforced so you'll have the confidence to go big. Hybrid rocker lets you take the board into deep powder without worrying about the tip diving down; subtle camber provides an effective edge length for quick turns. Tip-to-tail wood core: durable, vertically laminated aspen with maple hardwood stringers provides forgiving flex for edge control and solid turns. Core is wrapped with stitched fiberglass running in 4 directions; carbon stringers create a stiff, responsive and lively board. Traditional sandwich construction directs energy to the edges and keeps power loss to a minimum; rubber foil damps vibrations. Rugged, lightweight sidewalls offer low resistance and take a beating; 22deg bevel on outer edges and 0deg bevel on inside edges. Sintered graphite base is incredibly fast and hard; plus, it retains wax well and maintains a tough finish. Highly durable steel edges surround enitre board and deliver biting turns. Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Light Rail bindings and Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Burton sold separately. Skins and crampons available separately. The Prior Backcountry splitboard is handcrafted in Whistler, BC, Canada. .


The Prior BC Split now has Hybrid Rocker for extra float in the deep stuff. Its classic freeride shape has minimal taper and a moderately long sidecut for maximum uphill efficiency and edgehold through icy or hardpack conditions. The BC Split is a favorite amongst snowboarders who make their living in the backcountry and freeriders whose style is more geared towards fall line speed and large arcing turns.
