Personality

The slight swallowtail has a playful feel out the back, yet still offers the stability and torsion necessary for solid edge grip, be that on the climb or linking turns on the way down. Its tapered shape design makes it easy shifting from edge to edge, and it generally feels more reactive and shorter than what it appears.

The Details

The Pencil Split features our FLOAT CAMBER, which curves into a rocker shape in the nose, giving you the lift you need in deep powder. The split-specific flex pattern and camber under-foot provides stability in all conditions and excellent edge-hold for the way up. For an easy and quick setup we suggest using our pre-cut custom skins on this shape.

Biaxial fiberglass, UV laquer topsheet, poplar light wood core, and a high-end perlatec base is the tried-and-tested combination of our durable materials we use to enable that perfect turn. It features Union clips, nose and tail hooks, and the Voile insert pattern (most widely used in the industry). The nose holes secure our U-Hook skin mounting system.

This chart shows the range in what each size can handle. It is never our intention to categorize riders and their preferences. Our philosophy of snowboarding is to try new shapes, lengths, widths, and to keep an open mind for alternative riding experiences; however, we do have some limits to consider so that your board will work as it was designed to.

Your weight plays a major role in how the board will flex, and your shoe size will affect toe and heel drag when turning. The below size chart is for reference only, as our recommendations may vary depending on your stance and riding ability.
