The Telos Backslash is strongly powder oriented (short and wide) and still has a distinctive camber that keeps it stable on the edge in all snow conditions.

Test Results


With the BackSlash, Telos has achieved a good first hit in terms of splitboard. Thanks to the camber, you can climb safely with good forward pull. If it's deep, the qualities come to bear and you can enjoy the snow on the ascent and descent on a pure powderboard. The shovel lifts up solidly during the ascent and the descent is powdery and light-footed as we are used to on powder boards. A split for everything if you are satisfied with a little less pop.
