Amplid Millisurf 17-18
Riding Style / Field of use
In powder it is almost unbeatable, extremely agile and riding makes a lot of fun. Even if we haven't had the opportunity to test it at the best conditions yet, it was love on the first ride.
On the deep powder days, the big nose lets you swim on top, the tail drops and you enjoy a pleasant surfing like ride.
At the ascent, the tips float up well out of the snow. Kickturns are super easy as the Millisurf is perfectly balanced, very lightweight and also due to the short tail. In the case of hard snow traverses, the edge holds quite well - better than the former Morning Split, nevertheless it is always good to have your crampons with you.
As we have tested the board in less than optimal snow conditions, we can say: The edge holds, even when the going gets tough. With the Millisurf you can do everything your splitboarding skills allow you - the board can do more!
After experiencing the shocking weight advantage of the Milligram’s construction, it’s impossible to revert to heavier alternatives. The Millisurf is the choice for splitters who want the performance orientated materials and features of the Milligram in a more surfy board shape.
Carbon laminates, a BBP core and low viscosity resin, also known as the holy trinity of splitboard construction, strip weight like it’s going out of fashion, making ascents fast and painless. The tapered swallow-tail shape of the Surfari, with its unique three-dimensional Crust Buster Nose, transform this thoroughbred climber into the ultimate split for pillaging powder.
Innovative thinking is how Amplid approaches durability: Tanga Tech, Glass Impact Pads and Powder Pontoon are three cleverly placed reinforcements which solve the problem of chipping, crack propagation and bending failure which can plague lightweight carbon splitboards… but not this one.
