Category: Splitboards
 
Manufacturer: Pusu
 

The board is stable and playful, with a combination of double camber and longitudinal flex. The flex remains rather soft as the Double Camber presses the board firmly onto the slope. The torsional stiffness helps the edge to grip.

Test Results


New this year is the Pusu Pyhä. The noble walnut topsheet looks good at first sight. The Pyhä is relatively soft, playful, agile and floats up well even at low speeds. But floatation is also good at higher speeds and bad snow conditions. Due to the soft tuning and the deformation, the nose and tailclips of our test model were often loosened. The gap between the halves of the board is relatively large, so that the question arises whether a waist was intentionally installed here.

A nice detail is the reduction of the steel edges at tip and tail, which among other things lead to weight savings. In the ascent nothing negative has been noticed even in difficult conditions. For the first "throw" a successful splitboard. With a gentle character, the Pusu Pyhä is a splitboard that will accompany you on gentle to more demanding tours.

Description


The board is stable and playful, with a combination of double camber and longitudinal flex. The flex remains rather soft as the Double Camber presses the board firmly onto the slope. The torsional stiffness helps the edge to grip.

A generous tip rocker combined with a light tail rocker makes the board easy to handle in powder.
