The Best Splitboard for: Powder - Snow Surfing & Trees
The Japow is snow surfing at its finest - preferring trees and the deepest powder possible. Like many powder boards, the Japow has a very wide nose with a good amount of reverse camber. We pair that with our Powder camber-dominate profile and iconic fishtail. This combination provides unrivaled float in deep snow that helps save your energy for all the time you'll spend in the white room. This combination provides unrivaled float in deep snow and maneuverability in tight trees. A powerful core of poplar and bamboo stringers helps keep this board smooth and surfy while carbon stringers in maintain the pop in the swallowtail. The castor bean based, Rugged Nylon topsheet, helps shed snow and adds durability while the Sintered 4001 base provides top of the line speed in a minimalist black design to create seamless repairs. All of this helps the Japow to slay pow in the deepest of conditions as would be demanded on the 3 foot days in Hokkaido.
As with all our splitboards, we shift the touring bracket forward to make kick-turns a breeze and on this model we utilize active latching Karakoram UltraClips 2.0, installed with our holeless base technology, to help create the most responsive ride.
