Optisplitstic 2022

YES. We Can.

We're not ones to make apologies for showing up late to a party. For us to release a splitboard, it had to be the right time and with the right people behind it. Taking the powerful and versatile outline of our Optimistic, sizing it for the needs of our team and partners at Eagle Pass Heli was the first step to making this program legit. We then designed and developed a simple (read: reliable), lightweight clip system with our friends at Spark R&D® that maintains the torsional integrity of the solid Optimistic so that after that long, leg-burn up to your line, you can rip down it with uncompromising confidence.

UnderBite

Better edge hold and easier turns

Redistributing rider weight and input power, UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold. By having the edge pulled back a couple of millimeters at the binding area acts like a gaz pedal or a segregated knife, enhancing the cutting power of the edge. While you are turning on hard packed snow you need an insertion point to ease the edge in an then you need the edge to drive thus we have only a couple inlays because once you’ve engaged your edge you are driving your turn. UnderBite allows you to have that extra leverage to apply power to the edge where you want to. From nose to tail you have a better edge control and a smoother drive.

Core

Poplar/Paulownia/Bamboo

Creating a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.

Base Profile

Camber

Base Materials

Sintered True

Just like it says. Pellets or course powder are pressed until they form a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry, and each have different codes for them depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed often and prepared for local conditions."
