Test Results


The Sashimi Splitboard from Rossignol has won us over. Despite the width it is relatively strong in the ascent. The edge hold is outstanding and in deep powder it sinks very little compared to the competition. Like most boards, the Sashimi tracks well. Compared to highly ascent-oriented boards such as Mr. Splitboard's High Mountain, you have to make some sacrifices, but all in all it is impressive even on challenging traverses. The kick turns could be easier if the tour mode was placed a little further towards the nose.

On the descent, the Sashimi Split is a board that puts a big grin on your face. It surfs through the deep white like no other splitboard in its class. Even at high speeds it remains stable. The tail is hard enough to drop cliffs and keep in control. If the Sashimi is ridden on the groomers, it is not particularly freestyle friendly, but when it comes to carving and edge hold, it can keep up with less powder oriented boards despite the short effective edge. This is due to the elongated camber. It is most comparable to the Konvoi Nevado. The Sashimi can be ridden over the front foot as well as the back foot. The versatility was impressive. In addition to being able to cruise effortlessly though fresh snow, in extreme situations and high speed you can also fully trust the Sashimi.

Description


After sushi comes sashimi. This is a kind of hybrid of the XV and and the Sushi from Rossignol. The Sashimi Split has a softer flex compared to the XV and a longer tail area compared to the Sushi. The Sashimi is also not quite as wide shaped as the Sushi, yet wider than the XV. A kind of volume shift board (more wide than long) of the not quite so extreme variety for the days with a lot of powder.

Like all splitboards from Rossignol, the front area of the split, i.e. between the front binding area and the contact points towards the nose, is tuned harder in terms of flex. The rear area of the splitboard between tail and rear inserts is tuned softer in terms of flex. If you ride over the front foot and shift weight forward, you gain, due to the harder flex, stability at higher speeds. If you shift your weight to the rear, you can let the tail sink nicely into the powder and take out controlled speed. Also the sidecut is shortened by flexing and you come agile around the curve. It should be mentioned that such maneuvers of course only work with sufficient deep snow... Also interesting from the construction: Rossignol builds in the Sashimi split polyurethane strips (so the material from which skateboard wheels are made) between metal edge and wood core to realize better damping properties. To create enough edge hold in the ascent, the strips were omitted in the area between the bindings.

    Hi,

    Ich fahre aktuell ein Surf Shuttle in 157, bin aber nicht so 100% überzeugt davon.
    Wie würdet ihr das Sashimi im Vergleich zum Shurf Shuttle beschreiben?
    Was kann es besser, was schlecht?
    Wie fühlt es sich im Vergleich an?

    Danke vorab und viele Grüße
    Tom
