Jones Frontier Splitboard · 2022

$749.95

This board is the ultimate split for playful riders really looking for a directional freeride shape, without the stiff flex. The Frontier features a floaty, freeride nose that can really take on powder and crud busting, matched with a freestyle tail that you can pop on pillows and stomping off cliff jumps in the backcountry! Can really handle the icy skin tracks, firm descents, and provides stability and edge grip. Has a Sintered 8000 base, eco-plastic topsheet, and adds specific pop between the feet.

Lightweight and durable composition to make trekking a whole lot easier. Arbor's parabolic rocker will not require you to sacrifice the control of a normal rocker when climbing as the gradual parabolic shape provides smooth transitions when sliding the broken-down skis across the snow. Keep things eco-friendly while spending your time in the backcountry as well by incorporating bamboo and eliminating the use of plastics used in snowboards!

A good option for someone who wants to get farther out into those untouched territories. A softer flex board makes it easy to control in any circumstance combined with a slight rocker in the tip for extra float and camber under the feet for extra pop. Sintered base will make sure you're spending less time off the slopes repairing any damages to the board. The skins included with the board are 100% mohair and are also pre-trimmed to fit the board.

This Arbor Coda Rocker Split Snowboard is bringing the legendary versatility and performance of the Coda to the backcountry world. Based on a design that's made a name for itself in the all-mountain world in resort riding, the Coda Rocker has the ability to handle varied conditions with ease in the backcountry, and this split setup guarantees confidence in whatever you find beyond the resort boundaries. Arbor's System Rocker profile is easy to turn in challenging snow and excellent to float on that soft powder. The lightweight construction is ideal for flying up the skin track and down your favorite line. This board isn't too heavy, skiers won't feel any extra pressure there. Gives skiers a surfy ride, natural float, and buttery turns and spins. With catch-free tracking across the snow, this board does it all. It has a 7/10 flex, so it's a rather stiff board. System Rocker progressively reduces the amount of rocker towards the tip and tail and allows the outside contacts to easily engage when max edge hold is needed.

The experienced off-piste or backcountry rider looking for a light board with a perfect medium flex! An awesome, medium-stiff flex board, with camber between the feet and rocker in the nose and tail for good float on pow! This is a very light board that will be easy uphill, but has stiffer flex to make it less choppy at speed on the way down.

Mix of Camber and Rocker. Camber is super helpful on the skin up and rocker is going to help you float in the powder.

Kemper Snowboards Fantom Splitboard 1991/1992

$800.00

Want a board that feels and performs like a solid, but can crush it on the uphill? This is it! This thing is LIGHT! I'd go as far as saying it's probably lighter than the solid version of this deck, so putting in work on the uphill, if you're after something light, first and foremost is a cinch with the Fantom. Has an interesting camber profile too, has a super mellow rocker in between the bindings that dang near sits flat with the paired up camber from the inserts to the nose and tail, so no wonky rocker skinning, and still will cut into harder packed/icier skin tracks and rides incredible on the descent. The Shark-Bite on the contact points digs in hard on any condition giving an epic amount of response when needed and with it's directional twin shape, all the lines of your dreams will open up to you and perhaps even a few switch takeoffs too!

This is a sick option if you are looking for a surfy board that will float over anything! Inspired by the shredders in the ocean - the surf/snow plank has a unique shape and is more flat with early rising rocker at the nose. More directional, this Kemper will keep you floating in any powder you get after! Perfect for those deep days in the back country!

Looking for response first and foremost? You're looking at it! The Proto FR takes all the things great about the solid version and dials 'em up for the backcountry! Coming in at an 8/10 flex and a traditional camber, this thing is ready to tackle anything you throw at it and will help keep you dug in on the skinner no matter how icy or hard it gets. Has a Featherweight core to ensure weight stays low and stoke on the ascent stays high, along with carbon laminates to give you even more pop on top of the camber profile. All this paired up with a directional shape to keep you floating in the steep and deep, what more could you ask for?

A smaller feeling board with good float perfect if you decide to strap on a snowmobile and get ever further out back. Overall contact patch is small so skinning will feel less cumbersome but you might feel your self slowing down or sinking if your leading the pack or in super deep snow. A great place to start for exploring the backcountry in a nice small package that will take you anywhere :)
