Splitboard Test Results


The combination of the Plum binding with this board gave us a kind of WOW experience. For a medium flex board it has excellent grip at the ascent and very direct response and precision on the descent and a good float, too. Sustainably produced in France.

Plum Prems Split 14-15

Plum have the chance to test above 4000 meter and ride down at least to 2000 meter and they do test their boards in all conditions to give them outstanding performance. Due to the medium to hard flex, the shape, the camber profile and the adjustment the Plum Prems has a clean lineament and superb performance. They ride stable and precise, has lots of float in powder and reduced vibrations due to it`s elastomer dampening. The Ash-Paulowina core makes it leightweight and durabile.

  • Quad-axial fiberglass (strength and energy return)
  • Wood core paulownia-ash (ash for its compressive strength, paulownia for its lightness)

  • Elastomer (rubber damping)
  • Wide steel edges contour
  • P-Tex 4509 base (dense sole, graphite, "world cup" quality, black for invisible repairs)
