YES | OPTISPLITSTIC SNOWBOARD | MENS | 2021
We’re not ones to make apologies for showing up late to a party. For us to release a splitboard, it had to be the right time and with the right people behind it. Taking the powerful and versatile outline of our Optimistic and sizing it for the needs of our team and partners at Eagle Pass Heli was the first step to making this program legit. We then designed and developed a simple (read: reliable), lightweight clip system with our friends at Spark R&D® that maintains the torsional integrity of the solid Optimistic so that after that long, leg-burn up to your line, you can rip down it with uncompromising confidence.

- Outline: UnderBite - Redistributing rider weight enhances turning ease and edge hold. Pulling short sections of the sidecut inward at the binding area by 2mm disrupts and reduces the surface area of the edge that has contact with snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is happening. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your bodyweight onto the areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
