Riding Style / Field of use
The carve properties of the board are nearly as good as the Creamer's. At high speed it gives you a sense of security, nothing swings off. The board just feels good. One realizes the higher weight compared to the Miligram. We are in a normal split board weight category again. The Flex is very balanced, not too hard and not too soft. The edge grip is excellent. The performance in the Powder convinces. Maneuverability in conjunction with float properties despite Camber construction between the feet.
On the climb: Very stable, even at windpressed traverses. It comes out of deep snow nicely and the camber pushes you a little bit at every step you do.
The Amplid Creamer Split – The wallet friendly workhorse
The Creamer Split is an exciting entry point into Amplid’s splitboard collection. Everything about this freeride gun is focused on accessibility; its flex is firm but progressive and the shape, which was adopted from last year’s limited edition release the B10/30, sets a new standard for all-mountain versatility.
Using a wet lay-up manufacturing technique means that the Creamer Split is a little heavier than its siblings, but at 3.2Kg (including Karakoram connector clips) it’s still lighter than most of the competition.
Unlike many snowboard shapes on the market which have been retrofitted with reverse camber, the Creamer Split’s rocker/camber hybrid profile, flex and outline shape were developed simultaneously. Whether your next tour is a blessed with bottomless powder or it’s a case of navigating bulletproof windslab the Creamer Split will grip, rip and float on demand. In choppy conditions the Basalt Suspension Strips are very efficient at taming nasty vibrations keeping the Carbon Split well behaved.
The mellow elliptical nose cavity and underfoot camber are the perfect combination for effortless glide and dependable traction when touring.
To guarantee performance during long descents the Creamer Split is mounted with Karakoram board clips. Tested and proven pre-cut Kohla climbing skins can be purchased separately.
