Amplid Morning Split 15-16
Riding Style / Field of use
The Morning Split gave me the best Faceshots of the season. In powder it is almost unbeatable, extremely maneuvrable, it provides lots of fun.
The giant nose gives amazing float even at the deepest days, the Tail sinks and you get a great surfy feeling on the descent.
Also the edge holds well if the conditions are everything else than optimal. The Morning Split is a reliable tool for all kinds of Splitboard Missions according to your Splitboarding-Level.
At the ascent it floats great and traversing the edgegrip is good, but take the crampones with you, just in case.
Morning Split– The optimist’s splitboard
For powder hounds, splitboarding is an awakening. Even a short tour into the backcountry, days or weeks after a snowfall, can be rewarded with fresh snow and untouched beauty. The Morning Split is designed for these ever-searching optimists, the snowboarders that believe an extra 20 minute push into the unknown might reward them with the best turns of their life.
The Morning Split’s unique geometry squeezes ample surface area for floatation into a nimble and responsive snowboard. It revels in tight tree-line descents; no matter how close the trees get or how high the snow is piled this board will flow down your chosen line. In the open bowls of the high alpine it’s also very sure footed.
Touring is a pleasure on the Morning Split, particularly if you’re ahead of the pack, breaking the trail. The long nose rides up on top of the snowpack without too much effort and S-Rocker does wonders to maximise skin on snow traction. The Morning Split weighs-in at an impressive 2.9Kg (including connector kit) thanks to its resin-infused Hex Mat fiberglass and an uberlight Helio P15 core.
Pre-mounted Karakoram board clips are included with the board. Pre-cut Kohla climbing skins can be purchased separately.
