REI says:
Jump on the Prior Spearhead splitboard and head into the hills. It's the most versatile of all the Prior splitboards, so you'll be set for touring, no matter the conditions. The defined, gradually up-sloping nose of the Spearhead provides unparalleled powder trim; its modest sidecut, taper and shorter tail enhance performance and drive. Excels in powder of all descriptions in terrain ranging from wide open bowls to tight trees; it also rides well in hardpack, crud and variable snowpack. 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 Quadraxial 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. Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) sintered graphite base is incredibly fast and hard; retains wax well and maintains a tough finish. Rugged, lightweight UHMW sidewalls offer low resistance and can take a beating; 22deg bevel on outer edges and 0deg bevel on inside edges. 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 and crampons available separately. Handcrafted in Whistler, BC, Canada. .
