Powder is Cashew`s element, agil and moderate at the adjustment it guaranties a great surf felling.

Due to the convex Powderbase the Cashew has great abilities in powder and you can surf it amazingly. At steep terrain you have to know it`s specialties and you need to know when the edge comes, than you can have lots of fun even at challenging stuff. The finishing is excellent, like no other in the market and the sustainability is very important for Völkl.


The already known and proven Völkl Cashew Split goes to the next round ! If the adventure is calling you, the Cashew Split opens up the boundless freedom, far away from the slopes.

The eagle on the deck is more than just a nice design: In the backcountry you want to find your perfect line – and having eyes like an eagle definitely helps! Once you have decided your route, the custom-fit skins are fixed fast and easy thanks to the unique Völkl Skin Pin System. Brand-new in 13-14 is the additional climbingskin fixation at the tail of the board – two are better than one... and it enhances comfort and security at your backcountry adventures. As you feel every extra gram during the hike up the mountain, Völkl builds the Cashew Split as light as possible and equipped it with a No-Topsheet Construction and added Carbon reinforcements.

Once at the summit, you simply transform your touring skis into a board – without any tools and in just a few steps! While cruising through the virgin powder, the Convex Powder Base offers maximum float, and you will almost feel like you’re flying down to the valley - maybe like the eagle on the deck. Looking for an authentic surf feeling in the snow? Just ride the board as a short tail on the very back position and enjoy the spray of your massive roosters.

This season: The Cashew Split in 155 as a shorter alternative for all feemales and lighter freeriders.

It will be supplied in a set with the Völkl Cashew skins and interface , or with hooks and clips.

The available lengths are 155cm , 162cm , and 167W for the "big footed"

    Getestet beim split&relax am Hochkönig.
    Montage im Tal, sowie das Ummontieren der Bindung am Gipfel sind einfach, das Handling schnell erlernt. Der Voilé Bindung können leichte Vereisungen nichts anhaben und so hat man das Board vom Tourenmodus schnell wieder auf Powdermodus umgebaut um die Abfahrt zu genießen. Die SkinPin Befestigung der Felle begeistert, man kann die Felle auch aufkleben, während das Board noch zusammensteckt.
    Die Harscheisen sind komfortabel zu montieren - man muss nicht mal aus der Bindung raus
    Geschmeidiger Fahrspaß, der Rocker so gehalten, dass es auch beim Aufstieg nichts zu bemängeln gibt. Das Gewicht könnte etwas höher sein.
    Einzig die VoiléBindung bietet nicht die Stabilität beim Fahren, die andere Bindungen mit sich bringen.
    Insgesamt bietet das Völkl Cashew für den Preis eine tolle Kombination an Vorteilen an, die den wenigen Minuspunkten überwiegen.

    Ich habe das Cashew getestet, bei Pulver und windgepresstem Schnee. Im Aufstieg funktioniert es gut, bei Querungen sind die Harscheisen, durch den Rocker relativ schnell erforderlich. Bei der Abfahrt macht es richtig viel Spaß, surfig und wendig aber auch stabil auf der Kante.
