The massive camber of the Thunderbolt and the low weight gives great uphill performance and edgecontrol on the ascent as well as on the descent. If you like traditional Camber and have the power in your feet to get the juice out of it. You have a confident partner for all your missions.

    Das Board ist mit dem Voile System für nicht so erfahrene Splitboardfahrer ein petfekter Einstieg, ist beim Aufstieg gut handelbar, und trotz der ungewohnten Härte/Länge auch auf der Piste ganz cool. Überraschend wendig und lässt sich auch auf Kanten fahren. Nachteil: nur eine Stufe bei Steighilfen für steilere Aufstiege

    Review Split & Relax 2014

    Im Aufsteig super, vor allem durch das leichte Gewicht und sehr guten Kantenhalt. Bei der Abfahrt auf sehr eisiger Piste extrem wendig. Durch den Voile Adapter jedoch etwas verzögerte/abgeschwächte Kraftübertragung, was auch Auswirkungen auf den Kantenhalt hatte.
