Prior Khyber Splitboard

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Prior Khyber splitboard gets you into the backcountry where you can enjoy deep pow and fresh tracks with a few close friends. There's nothing better than earning your turns! Khyber splitboard features a wide nose, generous sidecut and increased taper for phenomenal float and maneuverability in the steep and deep. While the Kyber is stellar in chutes, pillow lines and trees, it also handles surprisingly well on crud, hardpack and ice. 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. Voile hardware makes the transition from touring to riding easy: simply put the board together, move binding plates from touring to downhill configuration, secure pin and go! Tip-to-tail wood core: durable, vertically laminated aspen core 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 Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) sidewalls offer low resistance and can take a beating; 22deg bevel on outer edges and 0deg bevel on inside edges. UHMW sintered graphite base is incredibly fast and hard; plus, it retains wax well and maintains a tough finish. Highly durable steel edges deliver biting turns. Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Light Rail bindings and Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Burton sold separately. Skins available separately. Handcrafted in Whistler, BC, Canada. .


The Prior Khyber Splitboard is already renowned for its easy turning and agile ride. Now with the Hybrid Rocker's early tip release it floats like a dream and turns on a dime like never before. With effortless turns on any descent, this new design will keep you climbing for more. The Khyber is named after an off-piste area on Whistler Mountain that is legendary for its treed powder stashes.
