Mahalo is Hawaiian and means thank you. There is also a lot to be thankful for this board, e.g. its light weight, its playful flex and, its turning pleasure and its uncomplicatedness in the ascent as well as in the descent.
Amplid Mahalo Split 21-22
"Ascent: The Mahalo convinces you during the ascent with its tracking ability and quite solid edge hold. It is balanced in such a way that you should kick turn less with an energetic kick, but rather shifting a little weight forward and the split ski follows almost automatically. As for the Stratospheric Topsheet, the differences were more pronounced on the thermal camera than in reality. During our tours we could not yet detect any difference with the topsheet. To be fair, we have not yet been out with the Topsheet in really unfavorable conditions - that is, when snow really ices and sticks to the board halves. We'll keep testing and report back.
Downhill: As a rather softly-tuned board, the Mahalo feels most comfortable in powder and soft spring conditions. We were surprised by the relatively pronounced potential for jibbing and playful riding for a spliboard: decent pop, low weight, soft flex and turning ability make small spins and even butters possible. You almost feel like you're on a fun oriented solid board. Logically, exactly these properties of course lead to the fact that in hard technical conditions, for example, ice chunks or frozen avalanche debris the board does not handle that well and the vibrations are quite noticeable.... However, the edge grip is always reliable and the agile Mahalo can be controlled confidently in any situation. Description / Conclusion: Mahalo is Hawaiian and means thank you. There is also a lot to be thankful for with this board, such as its light weight, playful flex, its turning ability and its simplicity during the ascent and descent. If you can fully exploit its potential in playground-like terrain and avoid hard conditions, nothing stands in the way of the wide grin from the rider. Tested by 3 ladies with a weight between 55 and 62 Kg."
Mahalo is Hawaiian and means thank you. There is also a lot to be thankful for this board, e.g. its light weight, its playful flex and, its turning pleasure and its uncomplicatedness in the ascent as well as in the descent. And if you can then still fully exploit its potential in playground-like terrain and not too hard conditions, nothing stands in the way of a wide grin of the rider.

This super lightweight wood core is the industry standard for lightweight, durable and versatile performance. We've tweaked this core so many times over the years that there's nothing left to improve.
Basalt Suspension Strips
These narrow bands of basalt fabric, running in a V configuration under the topsheet from the contact points to the bindings, dampen unwanted vibrations, reduce rider fatigue and keep the edge in contact with the snow for better control.
The use of biaxial glass in the construction of our boards gives them a flawless blend of response and playfulness while remaining incredibly lightweight.
Ultra-wide, low rise tips that exist only to create lift in powder without taking speed. They give skis and snowboards a surfer-like feel.
We slightly round the edges at the tip and tail outside the effective edge. Blunting these edges reduces topsheet chipping during ascent.
Amplid's ultra-high density sintered base goes like crazy in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
Bolted Tip Clips
The use of threaded bolts instead of rivets makes it easy to replace broken clips without the need for a shop full of tools.
Pre-Cured Impact Plates
Robust, pre-cured composite baffles placed under bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet damage and breakage.
Forged aluminum hooks, designed in-house by Amplid's development team, provide a reliable yet lightweight connection between the board halves and have a sleek, matte black aesthetic.
Knuckle Sandwich Construction
Knuckle Sandwich replaces conventional materials that are susceptible to damage with more durable alternatives.
Less heat, less sticky snow, less weight - thanks to a special heat-reflective coating.
