Splitboarding is not a new trend but within the last years more and more riders have acquired a taste for it. Völkl Snow­boards was into it from the start and has been producing splitboards based on the Selecta for their team riders for years...


Völkl Snowboards combines modern technology with 90 years experience – we have been at the forefront of winter sports since 1923. The progressive work of the in-house Research & Development department and race laboratory is what sets Völkl Snowboards apart from the rest of the market. Since Völkl started building snowboards in 1987, 26 years ago, the R&D department and their innovations have pushed our snowboards‘ performance to a new height each season. It is no great surprise that some features or materials only get used by Völkl Snowboards and not by other brands: for example, the specific Völkl Premium Carbon, the unique Grip Lacquer topsheet, the innovative Powder Channel, the clever Horror-Shock Absorber or the AVS (Anti-Vibrations-System).

Precision Emotion drives

A technological head start that is based on the uncompromising use of premium high-tech materials as well as on the input of our team riders. Only technology that has proved of value in powder, pipe or park, goes into serial production. And we fully trust the judgement of our pros because nobody loves snowboarding as much as they do!

You can feel it!

But because the sky was cloud-covered all of a sudden the heli was not able to start again just after their first drop-off. Fortunately for the guys the chopper had dropped them off in a bowl where they could reach some features just by little hikes. The advantage that a heli can fly you nearly everywhere to go shredding, is opposed by a drawback that photographer Alex summarized like this: “Dealing with the weather

A big shout-out and thank you to Ueli Kestenholz for organizing this trip and to his buddy Kenny Prevost from www.heliski.ch. Big-ups also go to Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Selkirk Tangiers for the perfect support.

Roy Brönnimann: “After a long, hard but very successful day in the Revelstoke backcountry Stani paused for a moment on our way back into the valley and reflected the unforgettable day in the stunning sunset high above Revelstoke. These are the days that I constitute the essence of my life and they are the reason for my passion of snowboarding. These were moments that will last forever.”

Alex Papis: “Canada is totally different than Europe. You can find unlimited possibilities and depending on your budget, you can just choose how to get to the top of the mountains.”

Roy Brönnimann: “I never hit the road with such a big motorhome before and enjoyed every minute I was able to live that particular special lifestyle, including the two RV parties we had along the way.“

Michi „Stani“ Stanschitz: “Finally it was our heli-day, the day I’ve dreamed of for so long! It was just unbelievable to sit in the bird and to be able to tell the pilot where we wanted to be dropped.”

Roy Brönnimann: “Being able to be out there in the nature hiking mind blowing winter wonderland landscapes, ride pillows and steep big mountain lines all day and get back to the valley in silent darkness put a long lasting smile on my face.”

Horror-Shock Absorber Since the first Squad boards were presented in 2003, we have constantly progressed and improved the series, but one thing hasn‘t changed: these top-notch boards not only feature the R&D department‘s overall knowledge, but also the best high-tech materials. For example, the ultra-light woodcore that turns the boards into true flyweights, or the Völkl Premium Carbon inlay that offers killer pop. At the same time, the Squad Series offers each rider exactly what he or she is looking for: the responsiveness and maximum edge hold of the Camber version for those who want to push the limits in park or pipe; or the playful and easy-to-turn characteristics of the Rocker version for the jibbers out there that don‘t want to miss a park feature – the edge hold is superior for a Rocker board and offers absolute control, even on the medium kicker line.

The Horror-Shock Absorber developed by Völkl is certainly also one of the Squad Series‘ secrets of success. What to wish more for than a highperformance board that is extremely strong and durable? The reason for this is armor wood! Thanks to the reinforcement in the bindings area that is made of specific wood with high structural density, all shocks and impacts get absorbed without moaning, and without causing micro cracks in the wooden core. Tests in the lab have proven that these boards can even withstand the weight of a compact car. As a nice side effect, the armor wood inlay also improves the board‘s pop – no wonder that our team riders are all going nuts.

Squad Prime / Squad Rocker Together with a V-Flex inlay the Shock Absorber makes these boards stronger with better torsion properties.

The UltraLight Woodcore makes the board extremely light, while the Pro Camber Shape provides for perfect control and smoothness. Longevity is guaranteed thanks to the built in Horror-Shock Absorber that can withstand the weight of a compact car. In short: The Squad Prime is your flight ticket into the next dimension!

Horror-Shock Absorber The permanently revised HSA is made of special hardwood in­lays made of armor wood that are milled into the core, in the binding area, and towards the nose and tail. The H-shaped in­lays absorb all shocks and impacts of hard landings and huge jumps. The Horror-Shock Absorber easily with­stands the weight of a compact car and makes the board nearly unbreakable. Re­spec­tive­ly, surviving hard landings after huge jumps make Squad boards extremely strong and durable while equipping them with ultimate pop.

High-tech freestyle rocker board that destroys any park The Freestyle Rocker makes the board very forgiving and easy-to-turn, while the Premium Carbon Weave grants killer pop on kickers. Our pro rider Chris Kröll is stoked about the brand-new Blunt Nose Geometry that provides the Squad Rocker with a longer effective edge while leaving the board‘s length unchanged. The most versatile freestyle board of all times!

Blunt Nose Geometry On first sight, the Blunt Nose looks like a flattened but tra­di­ tional nose. However, com­b­ined with the adapted sidecut, it pro­ vides for a longer contact length than a board in the same length with a regular shape. This makes it possible to ride a more agile, shorter board with the con­ tact length and edge pressure of a longer board. Another ad­van­tage of the Blunt Nose: You have less board weight to move during spins, thus of­fer­­ing a better feel­ing and safer grabs.

Rocker


“Camber” describes a board shape that incorporates a classic/positive camber. These boards feature two contact points when the board is lying flat on the ground: one in the nose and the other one in the tail. In between those contact points, the board is bowed, providing the board with a certain snap that helps cope with the forces unleashed during a ride. A strong camber provides more edge-hold on icy slopes; a smoother camber makes the board more responsive. Camber boards offer very direct power transmission and great rides when it’s all about speed. They are perfect for progressive riders and XXL kicker lines. Squad Prime, Riot Camber, Dash, Coal XT, Savvy Camber, Melody

Thanks to the soft Camber between the bindings and the soft Rocker in nose & tail, the Hybrid Shape is the perfect symbiosis between both “shape worlds”. The Xbreed SQD rides precise and direct, offering more pop than a traditional Rocker board – at the same time the shape allows for playful riding and offers more float in the powder than a traditional Camber board. Nevertheless, the board is more playful at low speed than a Camber shape and more stable than a Rocker shape, especially at high speed. In short: a board that feels short, but offers the edge hold of a longer board. When looking for absolute smoothness and maximum edge hold, you should choose a traditional Camber shape. In case you want to ride a playful, forgiving jib board, you should stick to the classic Rocker shape. The Xbreed is definitely something in between... Xbreed SQD

or Reverse Camber Due to the Rocker Shape’s negative camber, the board touches the ground at one point, which is in the middle of the board. All Völkl boards with Rocker have a flat section between the bindings, while the nose and tail are floating in the air. This shape provides better float in powder and is generally easy to turn and playful. Perfect for jibs and tricks, but also very forgiving, making these boards an interesting option for inexperienced riders.

Rocker and Camber in one board The Xbreed SQD is a hybrid board: Camber between the bindings, Rocker in nose and tail. Thanks to the Camber Shape you get more control and edge hold. At the same time, the Rocker makes the board more playful and provides more float than a Camber board. The result: High speed runs on the pro kicker line will feel as easy as first lines in bottomless champagne powder.

Freestyle Hybrid Shape The Hybrid Shape is the perfect symbiosis between Rocker & Cam­ ber Shape for many riders. Thanks to the moderate camber in between the bindings, Hybrid boards ride precise and direct. A Hybrid Shape is playful at low speed and more stable than a Rocker Board at high-speed runs – a board that feels short, but offers the edge hold of a longer board.

There are no real guidelines for street snowboarding. With some experience and a few missions on your back, you will be equipped an expert eye and discover creative spots wherever you are. You start imagining the lines that your jib board might take over down rails, close out rails, drops, wall rides, gaps, bonks and transfers. Now you only have to turn your dreams into reality. Here, Michi Schatz (AUT) g and Maciek Dlugosz (POL), reveal their tricks and tips when attackin >>> boards. Vรถlkl their with the urban neighborhood

hen on an urban mission, Michi never leaves the house without a little paper notebook. In this book he documents each spot with the street name and pictures of the scenery (in-run, landing, surroundings). That saves time if you are checking out the spot a second time. It is also essential to write down if you can ride the spot at day or at night to avoid any conflicts with the neighbors. But the greatest advantage of this notebook is that you can decide at home which spot you and your homies want to approach next. That saves time and frustration on missions!

Michi Schatz

First of all, you have to check if you have enough snow for the drop-in kicker and the landing. If snow is in short supply you can easily use pallets or similar material to build a kicker or a drop. Salt and water are a great help during the construction: At warm temperatures salt extracts water from the snow which compresses the snow making it hard. At low temperatures water has the same effect making the obstacle more stable. If the local conditions don‘t allow for the necessary run-in, you can use a bungee rope or a winch. But often your buddies can be of help too, simply pushing you to gain enough speed. Now it‘s time for some action! But don‘t forget to play “Rock, Paper, Scissors” first to draw the guinea pig...


Depending on the spot, you need different equipment! Power engine, spotlights, extension cord, multi-plug, toolbox, shovels, flex, saw, bungee rope, winch and drop-in ramp have to be in your car.

Not to forget: a snowboard.

The VĂślkl Jibster SQD is the perfect weapon of choice for killing street spots! Michi und Maciek swear by its Rocker Shape with a Convex Slide Base that has been specifically designed for rail riding and makes edgecatching slams a thing of the past. The True Twin Tip Shape makes the board easy to control â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no matter if you take off or land switch or regular. Thanks to the specific sidewall construction with dampening, you will be able to stick any trick on rails or on hard obstacles. And when you are into one footers, the partial Grip Lacquer will provide you with the necessary grip. Furthermore the Jibster SQD has great pop meaning you can ollie any obstacle that is in your way. Now you are ready to step it up on your next urban mission!

Jib monster hungry for rails The Jibster SQD is a true jibbing machine that saves you from edge-catching rail slams thanks to its Convex Slide Base and the elevated sidewalls that magically make the edges in between the bindings “float” in the air. At the same time, the TPU dampening, a rubber inlay just on top of the steel edge, absorbs even the most brutal shocks. New this season: The board‘s 148 length – for an even more skate-like feeling! LENGTH 156W

Convex Slide Base This constructions’ special fea­tures include elevated sidewalls while the base is rounded down on the sides towards the edges – it seems as if the edges were floating in the air without even touching the rail. No more edge-catching slams, just more fun onboard!

City Rail Trip from

Helsinki to Krakau

When it comes to urban snowboarding, Helsinki is without a doubt a paradise for every snowboarder who’s into riding street rails. Not only is there an over-average number of amazing spots, but also an over-average number of amazing people who let you ride these spots. Hell, there’s even a smartphone app for ‘spots’. Just open your application and you’ll be provided with pictures, street names, in run info, security info and GPS dates for almost every spot. >>>

The ‘Partier of the Trip Award’ goes to Mr. Pircher, by the way. According to Maciek and Balint it’s not possible to get Simon angry. Well, maybe there is a way: try to tell him that he has to go home at 4 o’ clock in the morning. No way. After all Simon is the guy who likes nice girls and switch frontboards. At the end we could of course list all the acknowledge­ ments of the guys now, like how incredibly stoked they were to be on this trip. There’d be quite a selection.

products and materials At Völkl we work hard each day to make the world a little bit greener and a little better. Not only concerning our products, but we are also trying to handle our resources from within the company – we like to practice what we preach. After all, we know that there is still a lot to do in order to conserve our nature for future generations. And each of us – no matter if business or individual, shop or snowboarder – can make a contribution through our buying decision. The awards and encouragement from the snowboard world prove that Völkl is on the right ecological track for a better future. By now, four Völkl boards already proudly bear an “eco-friendly” certification: the Cashew, Cashew Split, Yavana and Soul Surfer. These boards don´t have a plastic topsheet and their ABS sidewalls have been replaced by flexible wood. This saves 400 grams of plastic – when considering an av­er­ age board weight of 3 kilograms, that‘s a lot!

We also reduced the use of resin and other toxic materials to the minimum. Although the black base might look inconspicuous, it‘s pretty shrewd, as it is made of re­cy­ cled material. The edges, for which we used 60 % re­cy­ cled steel, also look stellar. Last but not least, each Völkl board gets a final “wax finish” with bio-degradable wax. p.s.: Our environmentally-acceptable products often per­form better than conventional boards...

Sustainable materials & resources > Alternative topsheets instead of plastic: - Hemp/Linen topsheet (Yavana) - Wooden-veneer topsheet (Soul Surfer) - No-Topsheet Construction (Cashew, Cashew Split) > Hardwood veneer inlay instead of fiberglass (Cashew, Soul Surfer) > Wooden instead of plastic ABS sidewalls (Cashew, Cashew Split, Soul Surfer, Yavana) > Sintered recycled base (all black bases) > Edges made of recycled steel > Minimal use of resin & toxic materials > Natural Wax Finish/biodegradable


Our sustainable consciousness doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;t stop with the pro­duction of boards. Our Legacy Streetwear line bears the GOTS symbol that guarantees the use of organic materials and socially acceptable manufacturing.

Playful Twin-Tip Rocker board for slopes, park and powder The Savvy SQD Rocker turns the entire mountain into a huge amusement park! The Twin-Tip Freestyle Rocker looks like it was made for jibs and butters, while the Rocker Shape makes cruising through the deepest pow­ der a magical and effortless experience. The Blunt Nose is a brand-new feature that provides the board with a longer effective edge and gives you perfect edge hold when you are stepping it up.

Freestyle Rocker Shape Nose and tail are equipped with the same moderate concave ra­ dius, which makes jibs and but­ters a walk in the park. No more edgecatching slams! If you don’t land the trick perfectly, the edge won’t catch immediately and you can still easily turn your board. This shape also provides you with more float in powder, a bonus when it comes to bombed land­ings and flat powder slopes.

Smooth all-rounder for any terrain The Flavor has many talents: In the powder, the Easy Rocker Shape lets you float like a magic carpet. On the slope, the triaxial weave provides for direct power transmission and perfect edge hold. And the board‘s Free­style Sidecut will literally make your tricks appear like a walk in the park. The Flavor cuts a good figure every­where and anytime! High-gloss lacquered topsheet The application of a clear varnish coating on a board’s topsheet makes it even more durable and slick. The varnish also prevents snow from stick­ ing to the board. Reduc­ing topsheet thickness from 0.5 mm to 0.4 mm eliminates un­nec­es­sary weight.

Birgit Rofner A snow taxi picked us up in the valley and brought us to our „hut“, which wasn‘t actually a hut but the mountain hotel Bonistock, right next to the slope.

The trip started with a once in a lifetime experience! They even had W-Lan; essential for a Facebook geek like me! As it had dumped for days, the mission of the trip was set from the beginning: powder, powder, powder! This was kind of a challenge for me, as normally I don‘t feel very comfortable riding powder. However, Melchsee-Frutt is a true backcountry paradise and instantly made me into a real powder warrior, thanks to its endless lines and drops – I jumped my first 8-meter cliff on the very first day!


Verena Rohrer After bagging my first top 10 ranking at a 6-Star event, the Burton European Open, in Laax, I went on to join the Völkl Girls Trip, which was another highlight.

February couldn‘t have started better!

The most fun I had was on the Night Shoot! After dinner, the cat dropped us off at the Fruttpark, where we had a blast. The park was in perfect condition and I would have loved to shoot the entire night. However we had to save some energy for the next day, as we had planned to participate in a photo contest organized by the local snowboard shop. It would demand all our skills. At the end of the second day we’d bagged amazing shots of all categories - Backcountry, Park, Slope, Lifestyle and ‚We’re Hardcore‘ – and were crowned the lucky winners!


74

Kristiina Nisula We couldn‘t have had it any better on a trip – with an isolated hut in the middle of beautiful mountains, chest-deep powder all day long, and terrain that offered so many good spots that we couldn‘t hit them all.

For me it was my first „powder shooting“ and I really enjoyed it – not least because of the new Yavana, which is a real wizard in the backcountry!


Alex Papis The Völkl Girls Trip was one of the highlights of my season! Emi, our Swiss sales rep, came up with the idea to skip shooting with the girls in Laax and kill two birds with one stone by driving to Melchsee-Frutt for a photo contest organized by the Goofy&Regular Shop. What a

Photo shoot adventure

Upside-down season in Chile Clichés about snowboard pros are widespread, especially the one about them shredding the mountains in winter and chilling at the beach for the summer. But they are not always truth. Summer can mean hard work – on the one hand the pros are working out for the upcoming winter season, while on the other they can be shooting for the next catalogue. It was for the latter that a select crew of Völkl riders packed their board bags this past summer and headed to Valle Nevado, Chile.

Snowboard pros’ summers really are stressful!


This is one of my favorite shots from this trip! We were just cruising the resort when we saw this huge frontside lip. So we decided to ride to the top of the resort with the “Tres Puntas” lift and do a short hike to shred this feature. As the lip looked like a wave, we got inspired to ride it like true surfers: Stani did a huge backside spray on top of the lip and I enjoyed the barrel underneath. We needed perfect timing but managed to get the shot on the first try.

splitboarding fresh air, epic landscapes and a back-to-nature experience away from marked pistes...

Splitboarding is not a new trend but within the last years more and more riders have acquired a taste for it. Völkl Snow­boards was into it from the start and has been producing splitboards based on the Selecta for their team riders for years. Three years ago the Cashew Split went into production, benefitting from Völkl‘s know-how in touring skis when it comes to weight, flex and specific materials. We have asked three Völkl team riders why and in which conditions they switch from a traditional board to a split. Aline Bock, Martin Seiler and Ueli Kestenholz gave different reasons but they all agreed on one thing: Splitboarding saves you the energy that you lose while hiking and is definitely not only meant for grey-haired endurance athletes or touring ski freaks!


will never forget the “Isplitboard tour in Japan: Smoking mountain flanks and pungent sulphur smell joined us on our hike to the volcano‘s crater in Asahidake. Together with my Völkl team mates Aline, Keiji, Yoko and photographer Alex Papis we approached the luckily pretty sleepy Mount Asahidake with our splitboards. Standing in front of a boiling crater and feeling the enormous heat from the rising gases, as well as the rumbling from inside the earth, you become aware how small you are compared to the powers of nature. It was an impressive experience for us! Combined with the stunning view over the snowy hills of Hokkaidos, our hike was worth every single move on the splitboard. There is nothing more to say except: sick shit!”

Japanese Splitboard Mission with Martin “Seili” Seiler

Martin “Seili” Seiler Year of birth: 1988 Nationality: Swiss Riding since: 2001 Cover Shots: Snowboarder (Italy), frequenzy magazine (usa), snowboarder MBM (germany) Coverage: Transworld Snowboarding (USA), 7sky (CH), Whiteout (CH), Whitelines (UK), Playboard (GER)… Sponsors: Völkl Snowboards, Swany, Rip Curl, Deeluxe, Flux, Hä-wear, TSG Splitboard motivation: “Riding with my splitboard means pure freedom to me. No groomed slopes, no tracks. It is me determining the di­rec­ tion. Next season I would like to explore the glaciers above 4000 meters back home in Wallis with my splitboard.”

Touring the Kaunertal glacier with Aline Bock


It was an in­ cred­ ible sunny, but cold morn­ing when I met with the crew at the parking lot of the Kaunertal glacier, 2750 meters above sea level. Luckily, there weren‘t any tour­ ists in sight yet but unfor­ tunately the lifts were still closed meaning that we had to wait for another ten minutes until we could start our tour. From the top station we had to master some cross­ings and short climbs during which we carried our boards. At 3200 meters above sea level we reached a small leg of the glacier and had a stunning view on the surrounding summits. It was not until one more short ride down that we switched our splitboards into Hike mode and fixed the skins. The plateau started flat which was perfect to get used to the skis and to find your rhythm for the hike. We head­ed towards the Southwest into moderately building terrain and soon reached the Weißseespitze at 3518 meters. On the top it was time for a long break. Hiking at these heights is pretty strenuous but the amazing panorama was the reward for our efforts. And once our heartbeats had calmed down, we could really enjoy the view. Our ride from the top led us towards the East, and later towards the Northeast, through the so-called “slump”, until we arrived at a distinctive rock. When we reached a steep escarpment below the huge serac passage, we let things slide, or better glide. It is pretty amazing to see glacier seracs from such a close distance. Our pho­to­gra­ pher Daniel Zangerl and I took some time for a photo shoot in the now slushy snow, with the seracs in the background. In the middle of the glacier valley, it got a bit tricky and we had to cross between the crevasses. If you don‘t know the area, you should definitely have a mountain guide with you and ride on the rope. We had an experienced crew and were able to enjoy the ride through the beautiful glacial terrain. After a short and narrow chute we headed towards the Fernergarten where we had parked one of our cars in the morning.

Aline Bock Year of birth: 1982 Nationality: German Riding since: 1996 Results: German Junior Champ HP 1999, Freeride Vice World Champion 2009, Freeride World Champion 2010, many podiums on the Freeride World Tour Sponsors: Völkl Snowboards, ROXY, DaKine, Deeluxe, Ortovox, Jeewin Splitboard motivation: “To me, splitboarding is a new way of exploring the mountain. I love this feeling of being in the nature and keeping my distance from the après ski madness of bigger resorts. It is an incredible experience not having to carry your board on your back and fight your way up the mountain with snowshoes or short skis. Thanks to the splitboard I can keep up with my friends on skis and use their tracks during the hike. What they don‘t know is that I have way more fun on the ride down!” www.alinebock.de

The trip on the Kaunertal glacier was another great ex­perience in the middle of nature that you can only have with a splitboard!

Full Moon Splitboarding with Ueli Kestenholz

Freedom from ski resorts and their operation schedules; like this cold full moon night when we went for a tour through the beautiful Rosenlaui valley. With no lights of civilization, it felt like we could touch the stars. No noise except the silent sliding of our skins over the shiny snow crystals. Our warm clothes, constant moving and the beauty of this clear night made us not only forget but enjoy the minus 20 C° temperatures.

When we arrived on top of the summit of Große Scheidegg I felt like we had emerged from a forgotten world, as we looked down the other side and saw the lights of Grindelwald and it‘s ski resort. After a warm cup of tea we switched our boards into Ride mode and headed back down the dark side. No sick lines, simply enjoying the ride through this light, fluffy, untouched powder ...

... pure soul riding!


s p i t e v fi for changing your snowboard into skis and vice versa:

1

Before fixing the skins, clean and dry the base of your board with the Micro Fleece integrated in the skin‘s bag.

2 3

Make sure that the sticky side of your skins stays dry and clean!

Don‘t immediately remove the skins from the two halves of the board when switching from Hike to Ride mode (respectively from skis to snowboard). This prevents the board from slipping away from you in a moment of distraction.

4

When you put your board on the edge, it will be easier for you to push the bindings over the pucks from above.

5

Never forget to bring your crampons and put them on in time to guarantee a safe hike in steep or icy terrain.

Ueli Kestenholz Year of birth: 1975 Nationality: Swiss Riding since: 1989 Results: 2nd place King of the Hill 1997 (AK), bronze medal slalom at the Winter Olympics in Nagano 1998, World Champion and Best Alpine Rider 2000 and 2001, gold medal at the X-Games BX 2003 and 2004, Films: Playgravity and Playgravity II, first speedride ever down Matterhorn 2009, ... Sponsors: Völkl Snowboards, Arc‘Teryx, Dakine, Gloryfy, Pieps, Keen, Athleticum, Ford, Heliski.ch Splitboard motivation: “Splitboarding has opened a new horizon for me. Now, many lines that I have spotted from the resort are in close distance. My buddies with touring skis don‘t have to wait for me any more. Actually, it is the opposite, as Völkl‘s gear is very functional thanks to the handy Skin Pin System. But most importantly, I don‘t have to compromise on the ride down. Having a splitboard means enjoying more powder days while the others are complaining about the hard snow and tracked slopes.” www.kestenholz.com

the backcountry is yours! Our eco-friendly backcountry freestyle split board Cashew is your ticket into the backcountry!

Splitboarding is pure freedom, but one you have to earn! Those who hike up the mountain with a split board, instead of simply taking the lift, will be rewarded with a way more intense feeling while riding down untracked powder fields – no matter if you are somewhere in the backcountry searching for new, unknown runs or after a short hike at the top station looking for a perfect kicker spot off piste. The Cashew Split is the ideal buddy for the backcountry thanks to its Powder Rocker shape and Convex Powder Base that both guarantee maximum float in the powder. Furthermore, the ultra-light No-Topsheet Construction and the complete Carbon lower beam save you energy during the hike. This and the wooden sidewalls avoid needless plastic, thus providing the Cashew Split, not only with a lot of high-tech, but also a green consciousness. New this season: The Cashew Split is now also available in a shorter version (155 cm).

Only a few grabs and you can divide the two board parts, or respectively put them together again using the Voilé Split Kit Bindings Fixation. Then you only have to mount the skins using the Skin Pin System and switch on your LVS – go shred! Given a favorable avalanche report of course...

We are going to let you in on a secret :) Your riding will feel much better with the right bindings! That‘s why we try to progress and improve our binding models each year, adjusting them even more to the individual rider‘s needs – no matter if looking for a stiffer model with direct power transmission, or a smoother model that perfectly adapts to the board‘s flex. >>>


>>> Besides the performance, you should also look for the comfort! That‘s what our popular Fastec Binding System is there for: It makes strapping in and out a walk in the park! The bindings get adjusted only once to the boots and the riding style, from then on the system offers you perfect hold. The handling is super easy and with one hand only – without sitting down and tightening your bindings each time:

“Just step in, lift up the highback, close the Auto-Release Buckle and let‘s shred.”

For 2013/14 we extended the line with two new models: the Fastec Utopia with a soft flex, a fully cushioned footbed and asymmetrical highbacks including tool-free forward lean adjustment; and the classic 2-straps Straptec Initial with super-soft dampening and a baseplate made of high-quality plastic providing medium flex and smooth riding characteristics.

In case you are confronted with a steep couloir or an icy slope, the tool-free adjustment of the asymmetrical highback gives you more forward lean and edge hold within seconds.
