Adult Splitboard Plate - Forest - Split - 155 to 163 cm
Always more beautiful & efficient, this split is back in force this winter. Available in 4 sizes: 155, 159 & 163. It receives awards every year as it is appreciated by testers & the Stone Family. The forest is an all mountain freeride split with a 2cm set back on the back foot. Ideal for doing jumps, powder snow & easy switch riding on all terrains. Its shape & its classic camber allows riders to identify with something already known, easy & ultra goes everywhere whether in easy or very committed. The design was made by Simon Rivière. We love her style! He has already designed this same split last year. Riding something high-performance is the main thing, but if it's also beautiful, then why deprive yourself?
As always, this split receives a robust construction mixing paulonia & poplar to make its core playful and very responsive. A mat top sheet in biaxial fiber to make it fun and pleasant during big hikes. Its almost full black IS 7200 sole for easy repair in the event of an impact with a stone. Stone clips & hooks in the colors of the split. Available naked or in a pack with at least its skins cut to measure. Only ingredients that confirm that this split made in Europe remains one of the best on the market.
Sole details: An almost all-black sintered sole for easy repair in the event of an impact. Clips & Hooks Stone tinted with the image of this splitboard. All the ingredients are there to help you get the most out of the powder.
Sizes available: Available in 3 sizes, 159 & 163 Flex 8.
Terrain: Freeride all mountain.
Construction: In terms of construction, we always gain in lightness by mixing two wood cores. We use poplar reputed for its solidity & its taste for deformation & paulownia which is an ecological & very light tree. The mixture of these ingredients gives an ultra reactive & solid board. Along the entire length of each ski, a carbon reinforcement has been added for better relaunch & fluidity. Biaxial fiber is used so as not to break your legs at the end of the day. As always, we gain in rigidity by playing on the thickness of the core.
Great board for everthing
Great board. I ride the 163 version. It is pretty stiff but i like stiff boards. On groomers I normally only ride raceboards. Stiff boards are just way more precise and have better edge hold. Also great prices. You can't go wrong with it. The board has a lot of potential. It can handle everything. I jumped with it maybe 3 or 4 meter drops. Can ride steeps and pow as well. Perfect for ambitious riders who not only just ride pow. I ride it with the spark surge and the thirty two mtb jones.Report abuse
I am 1.73 meter toll, 70 KG.
I am riding the forest 159 with Karakoram Recon bindings.
This board is a wild horse! You need to be on your game at all times to control it, but when you do there is nothing this splitboard cannot do…
If you started snowboarding back in the 90's when camber boards were all you had, you will feel right at home on the forest. Really stiff, full camber, quick age to age and as fast as you can hold. This board wants to be on age all the time!
The age hold is amazing on hard snow! And for me this board felt shorter then it is.
If you are looking for an old school aggressive snowboard to take you in to the back country this is it.
I am definitely getting a solid version of this snowboard, this is all I want to ride now.
Thank you stone!
