Product description


The Borealis Arcane is the big brother of the Viking splitboard. It is a fast, powerful, stable, and very responsive board. It can be ridden with precision, when approximation is not an option. Just as the solid version, it is built with a long Camber and carries the latest technologies and premium materials. Additional contact points in the binding area bring perfect grip where you really need it: frozen couloirs, extreme runs and hard snow. Its nose is slightly wider than its tail (tapered shape) allowing it to hover on top of powder with no effort. Its wide radius brings stability and edge-hold at high speeds. Its UL Triax Fiberglass and ultra-thin DNA bioplastic topsheet make unbelivebly light. Its hardened steel edges are strong and reliable. No changes to previous season.
