We’ve always had a soft spot for the Salomon Sick Stick, especially since its Wolle Nyvelt-inspired reamp last year. Its backcountry freestyle chops have long been lauded, so it stands to reason that the splitboard version is one of the finest examples we’ve ever seen.
The Salomon Sick Stick splitboard is available in two sizes rather than the original’s three, but the short ‘n’ fat version wouldn’t make a good touring board anyway. The 157 and the 162 both sail very close to the specs of the solid equivalent, with just a couple of key weaks in areas such as waist width.
“If you enjoy spines and drops as well as chutes, then this is the real deal”
Getting all set for the way up couldn’t be easier; the Salomon Sick Stick Split comes pre-packaged with its own bespoke skins, which attach to the nose via a hook-and-hole system, and to the tail with an elastic clip in a notch. Also found on the Salomon Premiere, it’s a terrific system – and one that splitboard newbies will delight in.
