SplitSticks Slasher 13-14
Testers StatementRegarding the ascent I havn`t tried anything similar till now.
Riding Style Splitsticks Slasher 162:
The Splitsticks is amazingly direct regarding power tranfer. It wants to be ridden at challenging terrain and conditions. Good riders will have lots of fun with it.
The Splitsticks 162 is a traditional Camber Board. Regarding the ascent I havn`t tried anything similar till now. Extreme control even at high speed in difficult and very changing conditions. Riding pow you have to bring your weight very much to your backfood and you will feel the liveliness of the traditional Camber. We are convinced by the binding system, regarding performance, power transfer and handling.
The Slasher is the workhorse of the Splitsticks Collection, the only one that does it all for you, so the Spitsticks crew.
It is built for all-mountain performance riding at high speeds. Sometimes it reminds you that it wants to be ridden with strength in the legs. After a long hike it comes to life and gives you insane control in any terrain. Powder runs are normally terminated with fat turns at Warp speed, then it continues with massive slashes and fun at windlips or other features on the descent. Sudden ice on a blown out ridge or at a steep colouir may surprise you, but not the Slasher. In fractions of a second, it's ready to switch from float in fresh powder too strong edge control. Then, when you come down to the tight tree runs and your legs are already burning, the slasher splitboard shows it`s gentle side. In surfy-fast turns with precision edge control through heavy slush or treeslalom in waist-deep powder, it makes just as much fun as on Pillowruns.
The carbon version of the slasher is for the ultimate experience. It is almost the same board but it has more camber, more pop, more response and more torsional rigidity and reduced weight. This thing is pure madness. How mad are you?
Slasher: 157cm, 162cm and 166cm Slasher SX (carbon version, lighter and more rigid): 157cm, 162cm and 166cm

Splitsticks Splitboard Slasher Design 13-14:
With this completely new system splitsticks has developed a splitboard that performs excellent in the ascent and the descent. With the traditional camber profile, the smooth taper on the tail, which slightly reduced the sidecut and th floaty nose the splitsticks splitboard is a very versatile backcountry tool. It doesn`t matter if you fly threw powder shred hardpack or if you are on bumpy slopes. You blow away everything what is getting in your way. Assuming your riding skills are accordingly. You have tremendous edge hold on the climb, also supported by the camber and in case the crampons and of course in the downhill, due to the stiffer flex and the top power transmission from the binding to the board. The Splitstick has less inserts than other splitboards, which has a positive effect on the flex, the durability and the weight. The binding is not pushed on pucks as in other systems, but it is fixed with a "self-cleaning" rotating mechanism on board, thus you get an extremely strong connection between binding and board, which takes effect in direct power transfer, torsional stiffness and response.
