Don't call me a pow board, pow board. The Women’s Hovercraft Split is purpose built to surf the earth and features a directional shape that truly shines in the backcountry.
It’s nimble, squat outline provides the float of a much longer board, and the short running length makes it super maneuverable in the tight trees and skinning up. The blunt nose and directional rocker of the Hovercraft keep you surfin’ on top of the soft stuff, while the stiff tail keeps you stable through any unexpected crust. For added edge grip on icy skin tracks or firm descents, the Hovercraft Split features Inner/Outer Traction Tech 2.0 edges. For added ECO-performance, the Hovercraft Split is built with an Engineered Veneer Topsheet.
- Inside & Outside Traction Tech 2.0: Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. Inner edge Traction Tech improves splitboard edge grip on ascent. Three sidecut bumps on each side of your binding keep you locked in on icy skin tracks no matter which way you are traversing.
- Progressive Sidecut: At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reached the contact point. Gradually increasing the sidecut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
- Quick tension Tail Clip: Built-in climbing skin tension system using pre-cut notch that eliminates the need for a traditional skin tail clip.
- Directional Flex Pattern: Off set tip-to-tail flex pattern that is designed for directional freeride boards. The nose, center of board and tail are slightly different stiffnesses to help lift the nose, sink the tail and improve stability at speed.
- Blunt nose.
