Earning your turns has never been this fun! The Prior Backcountry splitboard gives self-propelled backcountry freeriders and explorers the means necessary to conquer fresh pow.

  • Backcountry splitboard works best in powder, crud, hardpack, crust—all winter snowpacks
  • Hybrid rocker design features a rockered tip and tail combined with a subtle camber between the feet; tip and tail are reinforced so you'll have the confidence to go big
  • Hybrid rocker lets you take the board into deep powder without worrying about the tip diving down; subtle camber provides an effective edge length for quick turns
  • Tip-to-tail wood core: durable, vertically laminated aspen with maple hardwood stringers provides forgiving flex for edge control and solid turns
  • Core is wrapped with stitched fiberglass running in 4 directions; carbon stringers create a stiff, responsive and lively board
  • Traditional sandwich construction directs energy to the edges and keeps power loss to a minimum; rubber foil damps vibrations
  • Rugged, lightweight sidewalls offer low resistance and take a beating; 22° bevel on outer edges and 0° bevel on inside edges
  • Sintered graphite base is incredibly fast and hard; plus, it retains wax well and maintains a tough finish
  • Highly durable steel edges surround enitre board and deliver biting turns
  • Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Light Rail bindings and Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Burton sold separately
  • Skins and crampons available separately
  • The Prior Backcountry splitboard is handcrafted in Whistler, BC, Canada
  • Snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo

Note: weight includes Voile tip and tail clips.
