A traditional camber directional splitboard that gives you maximum performance while going up and down the mountain in a wide range of snow conditions. Despite the camber profile, the splitboard comes with a decent noserocker to boost the floatability in deep powder.

Splitboard Test Results


The Mendiboard Hexagon is a classic splitboard for all kinds of backcountry action, the camber gives great stability and lots of pop. Regarding the price it is great quality at a very good price.

Ascent: The camber and the long effective edge gives excellent traction even at tricky traverses. The balance point is well chosen so the nose comes up even at deep snow of around 40 cm and the board pulls straight forward. The kickturns are easy to be done. 

Descent: Also at the descent the camber plays an important role, good stability and great grip even if you are surprised by an icy section you can rely on the Mendiboard Hexagon, just push it and you will find grip quickly. The float in powder is good, due to the optimized performance for alpine splitboarding you have to put your weight on the back foot, to get the nose out of the snow. To ride Mendi properly you need a certain level of snowboarding and some power in your legs but then you can also cut through crust and enjoy tracked descents as well.

Big respect for the guys from Spain who offer a great board wich is suitable for alpine terrain at a very economic price.

Product description


A traditional camber directional splitboard that gives you maximum performance while going up and down the mountain in a wide range of snow conditions. Despite the camber profile, the splitboard comes with a decent noserocker to boost the floatability in deep powder. Carbon laminates give lots of POP and help to reduce the board’s weight, while keeping torsional stiffness or reactivity. The Isosport 7500 sintered base with high wax absorption capabilities will make sure that different snow conditions are not an obstacle to good slip and performance. No changes in construction and design compared to previous season.

    Hallo!

    Ich bin etwas unentschlossen auf Grund eurer Angabe zum Fahrerlevel. Im Testbericht meint ihr, dass das Board "auch ein gewisses fahrerisches Können" benötigt, gleichzeitig ist es als Beginner/Advanced angeführt. Ich boarde seit 18 Jahren und suche ein preiswertes Board das auch im Aufstieg guten Kantenhalt bietet. Werde ich mit dem Mendiboard glücklich?

    LG, Martin

    Es ist kein Bigmountain Board, aber ich glaube schon dass man mit dem Mendi sehr glücklich werden kann. Wir hatten während unser Tests jede Menge Spass damit und nehmen es immer mal wieder gerne zum Fahren.

    Von Mendiboard gibt es noch eine kleine Weiterentwicklung, das Zenith Split. Ist sehr ähnlich zum Hexagon, allerdings mit neuem Nose Design. Das Zenith hat noch ein wenig mehr Auftrieb im Pow.

    Super, danke! Das Zenith hab ich auch gesehen, aber das ist in 161 eine Wide Ausführung. Ich denke ich nehm das Hexagon, wenn ihr damit Spaß habt kann es nicht verkehrt sein :)
