The Discovery splitboard is the world’s first splitboard designed for youth and small adults. This fully featured splitboard throws open the door for smaller riders to confidently ride advanced backcountry terrain on a legit high performance freeride board. Tech features on the Discovery like Progressive Sidecut allow for easy turn initiation, while the Blunt Nose and Directional Rocker profile keep any size rider cruising through the inevitable variable backcountry conditions. New for 2017, the Discovery Split now has recycled steel inner edges for improved performance on icy skin tracks.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls.
