Test Results


The transition works in all snow conditions from hard to slushy. The early rise nose lets it float up very well, the solid camber gives firm hold and the finely tuned flex also contributes to the very good characteristics. It is best compared to the Plum Talps. It is a bit more harmonised, has an optimized flex, a longer and softer nose and it is massively tapered and can also be ridden less powerful. If you like it surfy you should try it. The very distinctive camber brings a big PLUS to the ascent.

Splitboard Test 19/20 Plum Transition

The Plum Transition is made to have fun in any terrain, even high alpine, and to have the necessary safety in both ascent and descent. The collaboration with RipCurl and also the massive taper indicate the surfy feeling while riding, be it deep powder or playful windlips, which can be used like waves. All in all the Transition is another top class splitboard with a high alpine character. It is a faithful companion in fun terrain as well as in icy environments and high altitudes.

Description


Rip Curl and PLUMsplitboard have teamed-up to improve your backcountry adventures. PLUMsplitboard has been working on a new splitboard mixing surf and snowboard feelings on snow. Rip Curl has developed a new jacket and pants for splitboard activities. After a year of research and development and product testings, experience sharing, we have created the ultimate gear for Backcountry riding. Designed and manufactured by surfers and splitboarders.

Born from the collaboration between Rip Curl and PLUMsplitboard, with the Transition you will go everywhere at any time. This splitboard is mainly backcountry oriented, but offers outstanding performances in all conditions. Amazing partner in powder, great excitment in fresh snow. Hand shaped, the specificity of this model consists in its shape which feel like surf where each elements are significant. Thanks to its wide rocker and light Pin tail (tip wider than tail) allows to glide easily and you will feel like surfing downhill. Rockers provide smooth drive. Thanks to its quenched edge in tempered steel and its sharpening tuning, the grip of this splitboard is exceptional. The quadri-axial fibers, which take the core in sandwich, offer a flex that is altogether firm, fun and reactive in torsion. Its wood core (2 kinds of wood) heat-sealed by epoxy guarantees an optimal resistance to shocks. The stability of this splitboard will enable you to ride in the widest range of mountains.
