Its new shape & construction is solid, with a strong foundation of character to support & provide incredible sensations.
When climbing and converting, its construction allows it to eat up the difference in altitude without suffering.
Its tail is raised so you can also ride in swich.
This splitboard will appreciate if you like to ride with a positive angle on both feet, as on the classic board that you can find in the catalog, its set back is important to ride on the back foot & to ride well in powder snow. You will have a lot of fun in the backstroke turns :i
Once again we tried to save weight by playing on the core thickness by mixing poplar & Paulownia, 2.8 kg, what else !
Its Japanese design makes us want to travel, discover beautiful landscapes & get off the beaten track.
Big novelty this winter, we have developed our own systems to tighten the 2 skis to make a splitboard, what we call clips & hooks.
For a small brand this is great news. Few brands have their own splitboard accessories, usually they call in specialists because they have to do research & development.
For Stone from this winter this is the case. After many tests and prototypes we are now well and truly present in the world of splitboard accessories.
We had our own carbon poles, skins & now our clips & hooks ! The research goes on !
We chose to invest in a new skin technology. We strongly advise them because no other skins on the market fits better than the "Stony" ones (reference of the skins in the accessories section).
Attention this skin reference is not suitable for the dirty fish split & mini gun split. For these 2 splitboards you will need the reference "Worldfit" also available in the accessories section.
Cut to size with a nose & tail hook, your Stone skins will fit like your feet in custom soles.
Available in full pack, Stone skins, ultra light 3 parts SSS poles & with Union Expedition bindings.
It's up to you to see if you need the crampons. This splitboard being rather classic, all the knives on the market will fit on it, it all depends on the brand of binding you choose.

Be careful !
STONY skins are only made for our splitboards.
if you are looking for a skins pair for Dirty Fish Split or Mini Gun Split or skins for a splitboard of another brand than Stone, take Worldfit skins.
Since the beginning of the Stone adventure we offered our own skins, the feedback was quite positive but something more was missing.
So we took a look around & decided to invest in new technology. To make custom, to have a glue ultra efficient & ultra durable.
On the front of the splitboard now we decided to bring a circle to insert the tip of the skin, which allows an ideal fit.
On the back, the elastic with the Hook also fits perfectly. When we say that they are made to measure it means that they are made to measure in the width as well.
The STONY's only fit on our own splitboards so we recommend them when you take a splitboard from Stone.
On freshly groomed slopes, fresh powder or a mix of both, with Stone Snowboards skins, freedom is in your hands. The high-quality Mixmohair is suitable for all types of terrain and all types of snow. It offers perfect durability and grip, even for multiple ascents.
The new KOHLA Fiberseal Technology produces a thin, very robust and completely waterproof skin which, thanks to its small size, fits all hiking backpacks.
Maximum flexibility is also ensured by the "Smart Glue" used in STONY & WORLDFIT skins.
A newly developed advanced adhesive that guarantees easy handling and easy removal of the skins, even when putting them on and taking them off repeatedly.
In addition, these skins are suitable not only for all types of snow, but also for a wide variety of splitboard types. So you will have maximum freedom for your splitboard rides!
The main advantage of the new Fiber Seal construction is a 3-layer system without a cotton-polyester layer on the bottom, which means that it is much more water-resistant than cotton.
We use "Smart Glue" because in the end it is the one that best fits all Stoners and is the most durable over time. Our experience has allowed us to find the right compromise between a skin that peels off too easily (those from past seasons, & skins that peel off with difficulty (those we have already tested on skis for example). Basically our new skins are a mix of both. For example: :
Vacuum (adhesion of the skins) = about 3-4 kg of energy to be separated (sometimes too little, especially under difficult conditions, or 3-4 times a day)
Hot-melt Standard (traditional glue): 17-18kg of energy to separate the skins (especially for women, sometimes too difficult to gather the skins together and you can destroy the surface if you don't take the protective film.
Smart Glue (new exclusive development for Stone by Kohla): about 7-8kg of energy to separate the skins (we think this is the ideal standard for all those who want the perfect combination of easy handling and sufficient safety for longer or more difficult split hikes)
These figures are always measured on a 110 mm wide and 170 cm long board!
The skins are:
Cut to size in length & width
Mohair blend 65% 35% nylon
Smart Glue Technology
The skins can be glued back together
