The Salomon Sickstick has improved a lot over the years. The board has become lighter and its quite easy to handle, comparable to the Amplid Milligram. The weight is quite close, but it doesn't reach the same weight class yet.
Salomon Sickstick Split 18-19
The Salomon Sickstick has improved a lot over the years. The board has become lighter and its quite easy to handle, comparable to the Amplid Milligram. The weight is quite close, but it doesn't reach the same weight class yet. Anyway it is lighter than lots of other splitboards models in the market. The edge hold is good and the flex is rather soft. In powder and slush it can be ridden playfully through most terrain. In rough terrain or in very hard conditions it becomes more difficult and requires more toe feeling. It also brings the promised pop with it in any case. Versatile all-mountain splitboard for a very good price since skins are included. We could not yet test it with the delivered skins, hence we do not know yet how good they perform.
The Salomon Sickstick Split is a nearly twin shape board with only a few millimeters of taper. Wolgang Nyvelt was involved in its development, no wonder that it is best suited for backcountry freestyle use. We also like the metal reinforced ends in nose and tail area that protects the board if you hit stones and rocks or the couloir turns out to be narrower than expected. As a shortcoming, the board is only available in 157 and 162cm. If you need it one size smaller, you can use the 151cm version, which Salomon markets identically as a ladies board under the name "Pillow Talk".
