Swallowtail Split

starts at   $1,099.00 CAD

Prior’s Swallowtail Split is the king of big mountain directional powder boards.

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.
