What is a splitboard?
A splitboard is a snowboard cut in two that will allow you to ride in the mountains like touring skis. You will leave at the bottom of the resort with your snowboard cut in 2, be careful, we always reverse the skis on the way up. You will climb the mountain by the desired path with your skins and poles. Once at the top of the mountain, you will put your poles and skins in your bag. You will put your skis together in snowboard mode. Set your bindings to downhill mode. That's it, you just have to enjoy the descent as much as possible.
How to choose your splitboard ?
You choose your splitboard according to your size & according to what you want to do. If you are tall with big feet, you will not take the same splitboard as if you are small. If you want to ride mainly downhill & jump, you won't get the same splitboard as if you want to ride downhill & make nice curves & never jump.
What size splitboard to choose?
It's like a snowboard, except you can go a little bigger. The bigger the splitboard, the better the glide on the way down, the more lift you will have. However in conversion to the rise, it will be a little more complicated. The conversions are the zig zags that you will make to go as high as possible. For someone who is 175 cm in splitboard you can choose 155 160 165 max and all the intermediate sizes. This is generally what is recommended, there is no rule. For a beginner it is good to take 15 to 20 cm less than his size. For an intermediate or expert, the practitioner will certainly know what he needs.
