Swallowtail Split 167 CARBON #9228

$999.00 USD $1,248.00 USD

Note: this board features a "clear" topsheet - allowing you to see the handmade craftsmanship and love we put into each and every split ! The carbon you see through the topsheet *is not a graphic* - it is the actual carbon in the board !! The colored areas are also semi-translucent.

 

The Swallowtail Split - our split verison of the Powstick - is the king of big mountain directional powder boards. We have redesigned the nose and tail of this classic Prior ride to create a more nimble and versatile shape. In addition to the redesign we have added a couple of extra sizes for smaller riders or those wanting to use this split as a more everyday powder weapon.

The behaviour and performance of this board is the result of years of R&D and can be attributed to the nose shape/profile that allows for effortless float.

The swallowtail breaks down resistance and allows for a more natural stance without the dreaded back leg burn. In a class of its own, it has set the standard by which all big mountain powder boards strive to attain. With limited taper and a long effective edge, the Swallowtail Split is surprising edge to edge and efficient in variable snow conditions; the tails also flex independently to increase mobility and provide a smooth transition to finish the turn.

This is a great all-around split that still rips groomers !
