The split version of our dear Dart is great for drawing fresh soul turns in soft snow be it powder, corn, or slush. Although soft snow is its preferred environment it performs surprisingly well in harder conditions. The wide frame, along with its setback and taper, offers maximum float and a relaxed riding experience in deep conditions. The extra width also reduces toe and heel drag, enabling low carves on hardpack snow. The swallowtail offers playfulness out the back, but still has the stability and torsion you need to hold an edge throughout turns. Two extra edges on the inside and a split-specific flex pattern offer perfect grip in climb-mode and when crossing icy passages. It features Union clips, nose and tail hooks, and the voile insert pattern (most widely used in the industry). The nose holes secure our U-Hook skin mounting system. The Dart Split is the perfect shape for riders who are looking to focus on their turning style in the backcountry, while driving out of turns with max speed.
Please note that depending on the type of splitboard bindings you are using, this shape may have limited stance options, in particular if you have a very narrow stance with steep binding angles. Due to the large setback and volume in the nose area, the given tipping point of the board (the 3 toe-piece inserts) could interfere with where narrow stance riders might want to place their front foot. If you have questions, or if you’re unsure whether your binding system and stance will work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before purchasing this shape.
Our smooth FLOAT CAMBER curves into a rocker shape in the nose area creating an S-like shape. This design gives you the lift you need in deep powder, improving float while maintaining speed throughout the whole turn. It also offers response and stability when going for airs or simply turning in variable conditions.
