The backcountry is an unpredictable environment which hides changeable snow-conditions and challenging terrain around every corner. You won’t always ride Hollywood pillow lines and snow-laden spines; sometimes the reality is an icy traverse or a sketchy, wind-affected drop-in.

Splitboard Test Results


Due to it's shape the riding performance of the Creamer Split is similar to the performance of the Milligram. It carves stable and pops you out of the turns. At higher speed it gives you a comfortable ride and a safe feeling even at tracked out sections.

Compared to the Milligram you feel the higher weight and you are back in the "normal" splitboard range. The Flex is well adjusted, not to hard and not to soft. The Pow-Performance is great, very agil and with good flotation, even if it has the camber between the bindings.

Ascent: Well adjusted, you pull uphill and at hard traverses you go save until you need the crampons.

The 17/18er model comes in a fesh design with a robust semitransparent Sintered 7 Base in Flip Flop variation.

Product description


The backcountry is an unpredictable environment which hides changeable snow-conditions and challenging terrain around every corner. You won’t always ride Hollywood pillow lines and snow-laden spines; sometimes the reality is an icy traverse or a sketchy, wind-affected drop-in. But don’t despair, when conditions get tough, the Creamer always proves its worth.

Designed from time-earned experience, the Creamer Split handles a broad range of conditions and excels in powder too. Its Directional Cruise Camber, Amplid’s freeride staple, combines precise camber with a broad, distinctive, early-rise nose. Edging down icy couloirs, it’s the Creamer’s restrained taper and dependable camber, which extends through the tail of the board, that allow every centimetre of effective edge to be exploited for secure, reliable edge-hold. Basalt Suspension Strips are there to take the edge off unwanted chatter.

In touring mode, the Creamer Split‘s underfoot camber distributes pressure evenly along each ski for consistent skin traction. Thanks to Its smooth nose cavity, breaking trail after a snowfall quickly becomes second natures.
