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; An all mountain shape 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. This is the Carbon XTC version of the board, lighter and stiffer than its glass cousin

Rider Type: Self propelled backcountry freeriders, guides, explorers and multi day trekkers whose styles are geared towards big treks, fall line speed and large arcing turns.

XTC Carbon Construction
Priors high-performance XTC Carbon Construction brings splitboard technology to the next level. XTC Carbon Construction is available as an upgrade on all splitboards and saves an average of 500grams (1lb 3oz) off each board. Weight reduction continues to be key to backcountry access as less weight means more vertical with less physical exertion. Ensuring that there is no decrease in performance with weight savings is often thought of as the Holy Grail for backcountry gear manufacturers and XTC takes a big leap towards that spiritual cup. In layman’s terms XTC Carbon Construction uses the same vertically laminated maple and aspen woodcores combined with UHMW sidewalls, 4001 sintered bases and nylon topsheets as in their traditional construction but replaces the fiberglass weave with Prior’s newly developed XTC carbon material.
