Riding Style Furberg Split 167:
The Furberg Split is for fast runs in the backcountry. It pulls it`s lines through changing conditions as if they would not be existent. In powder it is just a blast.
The Furberg 167 Splitboard has a big radius in which you can ride big turns at full speed and control, both in powder and windpressed snow. Due to the rocker it has lots of floatation and agility. So you can also have fun in the woods. For a rocker board the Furberg 167 has great grip on the edges and you can also do traverses at the ascent quite easily. The finishing is great.
Professional freeride snowboarder and engineer Daniel Furberg designed THE freeride in order to create the ultimate freeride board. With the combination of an extra long turning radius, a unique rocker profile and a reverse sidecut in nose and tail, this board is extremely stable at high speed and yet very maneuverable and catch free at lower speed. Unlike other freeride boards, THE freeride will tackle any type of terrain or snow condition with excellence. From ice to bottomless powder, narrow couloirs to wide open faces, this board will handle it all.
THE furberg splitboard is the brother of THE freeride and as versatile as a splitboard gets. Whether you are aiming for that dream line you have been looking at all winter or searching for deep powder when the snow is tracked up at the resort, this is the ultimate backcountry tool for you.
THE Furberg Split is available in three lenghth: 162cm 167cm und 173 cm

The Furberg Split Technology:
FURBERG SNOWBOARDS is the first brand to build snowboards with a turning radius that ends outside of the bindings and passes on to a reverse sidecut towards the nose and the tail. The reverse sidecut makes the transition from turning radius to nose and tail very smooth and long. Thanks to this the board does not cut through the snow in the same way as regular boards, since the pressure is distributed over a larger section of the edge. The result is a highly maneuverable and catch free board that is super easy to ride with sliding turns in any type of snow.
THE Furberg Splitboard Freeride Rocker:
The freeride rocker is the perfect shape for outstanding floatation and maneuverability without sacrificing edge grip or stability. Between the bindings the board has a gentle rocker with the same radius as the turning radius of the board. The rocker distributes the pressure all over the mid section which increases the edge grip and maneuverability. Right outside the bindings, before the start of the nose- and tail rocker, there is a short section with flat camber. This makes the board more stable on hard packed snow, with a longer effective edge compared to boards where the rocker starts from the bindings. Towards the nose and tail there is a long and smooth rocker. Thanks to the smooth transition the board climbs over obstacles with less resistance and has fantastic floatation in powder.
