Furberg Freeride Splitboard Men 16/17
The Freeride Split is developed to tackle any kind of snow and terrain you might find in the backcountry.
High-speed stability in combination with maneuverable and catch free properties has made the Freeride Split one of the most talked about splitboards of the last years. Its long sidecut radius makes the splitboard calm and forgiving, while rocker and reverse sidecut towards the tips make it float outstanding in powder and stay catch free in any situation.
By incorporating a slight camber on the center section, the stability, pop and responsiveness have increased considerably and also added grip and stability in skinning mode.
Furberg is convinced that the Freeride Split will be the most versatile and game changing splitboard you’ve ever ridden!
Sidewalls – UHMW PE
The sidewalls are made of UHMW PE, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. These are highly resistant against abrasion and almost impossible to crack (in contrast to ABS sidewalls).
Edges – 2.1 x 2.0 mm Rockwell Hardness 48
The edges are considerably beefier than the industry standard, to be able to withstand harder impacts without cracking or deforming. The edges are fully wrapped around the board for maximum durability.
Core – Poplar and Paulownia
We have been optimizing the core’s mix of Poplar and Paulownia over several years to find the perfect balance between weight, strength and ability to hold flex and shape over time.
Base – CPS Sintered Electra 5920 Graphite
The base is 1.4 mm thick, which is 20 % thicker than industry standard. This means that you can hit rocks harder without getting core shots and you can stone grind the base more times. CPS Sintered Electra 5920 is one of the fastest bases available on the market. The thicker base does add a few grams on the weight, but more importantly it gives the board a much longer life.
Topsheet- Isosport Texture Polyamide
The Isosport Polyamide topsheet is one of the most durable topsheets on the market. The texture makes the topsheet very scratch resistant and less snow sticks to it. We also make all our topsheets in light colors to further avoid snow sticking to them. Dark colored topsheets get warmed up more by the sun and therefore more snow will freeze to them. This is a simple, yet effective way to save weight without compromising on durability and performance.
Composite – Triaxial Fiberglass
Triaxial fiberglass is used to get a good torsional stiffness of the splitboard.
