Splitboard: the alternative between ski touring and snowboarding
You dream of being able to climb the summits and enjoy your favourite snowboarding practice at the same time. Don't hesitate, everything is possible and at Alpinstore we have splitboards to offer you.
But above all, what is splitboarding?
It's quite simply a snowboard that can split in two so that it becomes "skis". The utility of this specificity is to be able to practice ski touring, to be able to climb the mountain tops while going down with your partner of glide: your snowboard. Snowboard brands are offering more and more this type of equipment like the Jones splitboardwhich offers some of its models in split and classic.
Bindings, crampons, knives, skins
Special snowboarding means special bindings. These splitboard bindings can be oriented to adapt to the ski practice, allowing you to free your foot during the ski touring. You will often find bindings such as Karakoram or Plum, etc...
To be equipped to the tip of your foot, we advise you to complete your equipment with splitboard crampons or knives. These crampons will ensure your stability on the snow during your ascents when the snow is too frozen. They will prevent you from skidding!
Of course, you will have to equip yourself with splitboard skins to finally reach your goal. You will have the choice between nylon or mohair skins, depending on your requirements. They are designed to give you a better grip so that you can enjoy your outings.
Nothing will stop your exploration projects! Equip yourself now at Alpinstore.
