The Best Splitboard for: Steeps, Open Bowls, Freeride + All Mountain
The Ridgeline is the peak of our freeride line - built to float in powder while giving you an unrelenting edgehold at high speeds on steep, variable terrain. Featuring a Directional Multi Radial Camber-Rocker profile and a longer sidecut, the Ridgeline provides float in deep snow, while avoiding too much taper that might cause the board to wash out easier on icy slopes. We add in our Rugged Topsheet made from castor bean oil for durability/snowshedding, and a top of the line Sintered Base with clean black graphics for unrivaled speed and ease of p-texing/repair. Additionally, this splitboard features our Vertical Laminate and Tail V Carbon with one of our most sophisticated and sustainably harvested poplar, paulownia and bamboo cores to shave a touch more weight than our Backwoods while providing reliable edgehold, snap and dampening required of higher speeds. The Ridgeline is a freeride splitboard at its core, but we've made the flex more approachable to be a stellar, all around, daily driver on resort or off.
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.
