Prior BC Glass Splitboard

New

The Backcountry Split (BC Split) has been refined over the years but is the original Freeride shape designed by Chris Prior in the early 90’s; the BC Split is a classic example of a true, all mountain shape that maintains its role in the line as the workhorse of the fleet.  Its directional Freeride shape delivers a smooth, stable ride in a variety of different snow conditions and the Hybrid Rocker Profile only adds to its versatility;  rocker in the nose and tail for turn initiation and float while maintaining traditional camber underfoot for added stability, rebound and edgehold.

Quadglass Construction

 

Priors quadraxial glass/carbon composite (quad glass) is a stitched fabric with fibers running in four directions (+30, -30, 0 and +90 degrees). It also contains two 6cm-wide, 10-count carbon strips running lengthwise down the center of each board half. The quadglass material is layered on each side of a vertically laminated maple and aspen woodcores combined with UHMW sidewalls, 4001 sintered bases and nylon topsheets. The fiberglass/carbon configuration of quadglass creates a responsive, long lasting ride with excellent torsional stability. The additional directional weave creates enhanced torsional stiffness in comparison to the triaxial fiberglass construction.
