In the past few years, splitboarding has taken the backcountry scene by storm, and we're not surprised why.

We’re splitboarders ourselves, and love nothing more than getting out on the snow with the freshest gear. As such, we’re always in search of the best splitboards to take on the next backcountry trip.

Season Pass - Men's & Women's

The best 2021-2022 splitboards
 
 

Season Eqpt. is proud to announce the Pass Splitboard. Designed by Austin Smith, this is a splitboard for everyone and everything. With its progressive shape, it's one of the best all-around splitboards on the market. Featuring a biaxial fiberglass construction, the Pass is lightweight and poppy while still being able to handle any terrain you can throw at it. Its medium flex is the best of both worlds; mellow enough for comfort on hard terrain, stiff enough to power through powder.

A unique blend of Paulownia and Poplar wood gives this snowboard an incredibly light feel with a snappy catchy response that makes it great for freeriding, but it’s not too radical to be your everyday commuter either. The generous nose keeps your weight centered over your feet for better control and playfulness. And the camber under the feet gives you climbing power and stability on descent. You'll ride faster and longer than other boards because it's so light and nimble, yet the dampening core will provide a stable ride over anything: powder, ice, chop. If you want to splitboard hard and fast then this is your board.
