The Best Splitboard for: Trees, Steeps + Open Bowls
The Eclipse snowboard, featuring a pow centric, Directional Multi Radial Camber-Rocker profile with a wide nose and half-moon narrow tail, will float effortlessly in powder, is nimble in tight trees, is stiff enough to hold an edge through chatter and crud, and is fast enough to keep you on top all day long. The board's waist width is slightly narrower than our Backwoods to accommodate smaller feet and is topped with our Rugged Topsheet made from castor bean oil to add durability/snow-shedding, a top of the line Sintered Base adds unrivaled speed, and our poplar/bamboo wood core adds sustainably harvested pop and stability. It's truly a one board quiver for those that prefer trees, powder, and open bowls.
For the finishing touches on this splitboard, we use active latching Karakoram Ultraclips to help create as close to a solid board feel as possible and limit chatter between sections. Additionally, we design with camber underfoot so that you'll have optimum skin traction for the uphill, and edge-hold on the downhill. A slight shift of the touring bracket forward to create a heavier tail also allows for ease of kick-turns in the skin track.
A portion of the proceeds from this board will be going to continue funding AIARE avalanche education scholarships.
