Why we chose the Korua Escalator Splitboard Plus: A super light-weight splitboard that’s focussed on earning your turns as much as yearning for them.
While the other splitboards in KORUA’s fleet have been brought directly across from the solid lines, the Escalator is their first split-specific shape that’s been built purely for time spent on the skin track. It’s the board that KORUA’s head honcho Nicholas Wolken uses for most of his backcountry objectives – be it a multiday objective deep in the Swiss Alps or a fast and light dawn-til-dusk-day mission.

Who Is The Korua Escalator Split For?
As far as carbon injected snowboards go, this one’s pretty rideable for intermediates and up. But as is the nature of the Plus Line, the Escalator is made with the lightest, most responsive and fastest materials at KORUA’s disposal. Naturally, then, the price jumps up a bit too. Riders who are going for the occasional yomp outside the resort ropes or investing in their first split will have more than enough to keep them frothing in the Classic Line. This one is targeted at those who are looking to shave minutes off their ascents and add several km/h to their descents.
