Weston Backwoods Splitboard 2023

Boardworks Breakdown:

The Backwoods is a pow slayer. Awesome quickness in the trees, a big stout nose for flotation, and a camber heavy design to make a response at high speed effortless. Great for the bigger hoof rippers and chargers out there. Just as good as the solid, but it goes uphill as well!


Manufacturer Description:  


The Best Splitboard for: Powder + Freeride - Trees, Powder & Steeps

The Backwoods is a powder & freeride hybrid that prefers trees, powder and steeps. Like most powder boards, the Backwoods has a very wide nose and a tapered tail, but it differentiates itself with a mid-stiff flex, our Freeride camber-dominant profile and only 10mm of setback. This combination keeps the board nimble in trees, reliable on crud, and floaty in deep snow. A powerful core of poplar and bamboo stringers helps keep this board smooth and surfy while tip to tail carbon stringers give it a little extra pop. The castor bean based, Rugged Nylon topsheet, helps shed snow and adds durability while the Sintered 4001 base provides top of the line speed in a minimalist black design to create seamless repairs. All of this helps the Backwoods to slay pow while still performing in variable conditions as you hop from pow stash to pow stash.

As with all our splitboards, we shift the touring bracket forward to make kick-turns a breeze and on this model we utilize active latching Karakoram UltraClips 2.0, installed with our holeless base technology, to help create the most responsive ride.
