Doppelganger - the all-round splitboard for your next backcountry endeavor. For those looking to get even more powder than what is available right off the trail, the Doppelganger will easily get you to the top of any unmarked and untouched powder thanks to the Hike Pods technology for better edge grip on the way up. The Cam-Out Camber and directional mid-wide shape will allow you to float through the pow and navigate back home with ease!
