“TThe down is worth the up” say splitboarders – but there’s nothing wrong with trying to make the up a little easier… That’s where the Salomon Premiere splitboard comes in. While most boards of its kind divide into two pieces, there’s four at work here.
“That means less weight under your feet, as well as the ability to glide along in narrower tracks left by ski tourers”
You can stash the central two pieces in a pack, and use the outer ones as your touring skis. That means less weight under your feet, as well as the ability to glide along in narrower tracks left by ski tourers. In short, less effort is required for the way up.
The Salomon Premiere is still compatible with the vast majority of splitboard bindings, and is easy to set up once you reach the summit. Then when you’ve got going, the Premiere is well equipped to handle any terrain. It’s got a medium stiffness and a hybrid camber profile, and the tapered directional shape is perfect for charging down uncharted faces. If you’re properly prepared the sintered base, you’ll be able to absolutely redline it.
So it’s more than just a clever touring system. Whether you’re on the way up or heading back down, you’ll be glad you’ve got a Salomon Premiere under your feet.
