Test Results


Due to the shape, the riding characteristics are similar to those of the milligram. It carves stable and pops you out of the turns. At high speed it gives you both safety and stability and ploughs playfully through all unevenness in the backcountry. It simply feels good and riding is great fun.

The higher weight compared to the milligram is of course noticeable, you are again in the normal weight class of a splitboard. This obiously is reflected in the durability. The Flex is very well balanced, not too hard and not too soft. The edge hold is excellent. The performance in powder is convincing. The ability to turn combined with float properties and the safety of a camber construction between the legs.

Ascent: Well balanced it pulls cleanly uphill and holds well even at hard traverses.

The 18/19 model comes in a fresh design with a robust semitransparent Sintered 7 Base in Flip Flop variation.

Description


The Amplid Creamer Split is your friend in the unpredictable backcountry when changing snow conditions and challenging terrain await you. You won't always find perfect pillow lines and fat spines, reality often consists of icy trusses and wind-blown drop-ins. But all this doesn't have to worry you if you have the Creamer Split under your feet.
 
Years of experience have gone into the design of the Creamer Split, which is why it can handle a wide variety of conditions and, of course, powder. Directional Cruise-Camber - Amplids Freeride all-purpose weapon - combines precision with the long, unmistakable early-rise nose. On descents through icy gullies, the lightweight taper and reliable pre-tension that extends into the tail guarantee secure hold over every inch of the effective edge. Basalt suspension strips reduce unwanted flutter.
 
In touring mode, the preload under the foot ensures good power transmission and constant grip. The smooth Nose easily digs a new trail into the deep snow.

Details


Omni Core

This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.

Basalt Suspesion Strips

Running along the topsheet in a V-configuration from the contact points towards the bindings, these narrow bands of Basalt fabric dampen unwanted vibrations, reducing rider fatigue and keeping you edge engaged with the snow for improved control. Get the Rolls Royce feeling!

Impact Pads

On the Milligram we have added multidirectional glass pads in the binding area, to avoid dings caused by the pointy corners of metal splitboard binding bases. These pads enhance durability while only adding minimal weight.

Biax Glass

Using Biaxial Glass in the construction of our shreds gives them a flawless blend of response and playfulness whilst keeping them ridiculously lightweight.

Floatation Tips

Ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking-up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards.

Sintered 7 Base

Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.

Split Tune

We lightly round the edges at the tip and tail, outside of the effective edge. Blunting these edges reduces chipping to the topsheet during skinning.

Bolted Tip Clips

Using threaded bolts instead of rivets allows broken tip clips to be easily replaced, on the hill, without the need for a workshop full of tools.
