Splitboard Test Results


Ascent: Well-balanced you move up the mountain and kick-turns go easy out of the knees.

Descent: When it comes to the Burton Custom there is nothing left to desire. A well-balanced twin-shaped camber split with best all-round qualities and a bit softer than its bigger brother the Landlord. Thanks to its shape that got improved and optimized over the years it perfectly holds its edge even when it is quite soft. Also in steeper terrain you can count on it.

Snowconditions at the tests: from 20-30 cm of powder to hardpack and slopes

Bindings used for testing: SP und Spark
Boots: Deeluxe und Fitwell
