Product Description

The Prior Khybe splitboard is a high-performance powder board: a wide nose, generous sidecut and increased taper provide improved float and maneuverability. While the Kyber is stellar in chutes, pillow lines and trees, it nonetheless handles surprisingly well on crud, hardpack, icy and variable winter conditions.

Features

Tip-to-tail wood core; durable, vertically laminated aspen with maple hardwood stringers provides forgiving flex for edge control and solid turns. Core is wrapped with stitched Quadraxial fiberglass running in 4 directions; carbon stringers create a stiff, responsive and lively board. Traditional sandwich construction directs energy to the edges and keeps power loss to a minimum; rubber foil dampens vibrations. Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) sintered graphite base is incredibly fast and hard; retains wax well and maintains a tough finish. Rugged, lightweight UHMW sidewalls offer low resistance and take a beating; 22 degree bevel on outer edges and 0 degree bevel on inside edges. Highly durable steel edges deliver biting turns. Includes Voile splitboard connecting hardware, Voile slip-disc multiple adjustment binding system (08/09 version), and Voile XL tractor skins (130mm wide x 152cm long). Handcrafted in Whistler, Canada.
