Highly recommended!

This is a really awesome board!! Splitboards are tough to find info about because there are not many people on the slopes with them and not many shops carry a good selection. I got this board a couple weeks ago and just finished 7 days in the French Alps with it. Before this I had been riding the current K2 panoramic split and really didn't like it. It was my first split and hated the feel of it. It made me not want to ride it unless I had to tour. This Burton on the other hand kicks ass on many levels. First of all you don't feel like your riding a splitboard. It is short, very light and compact. It is great in deep powder. It actually rips on groomers whether soft of icy as hell. I was so impressed with that out of a split. Not that you want to be on groomers all day with a split but what's nice is you can and still ride it very hard and hold a solid edge. The only thing I might change if I could is to have it just a tiny bit stiffer. Burton rates it a 5 out of 10 on the stiffness scale. Wish it was maybe 6.
To sum it up this is a board you can ride all day on many surfaces and love it and also have the option to split and go touring.

Great review! I too had a panoramic, I actually really liked it. I have decided to however to switch to Spliff after all the awesome feedback. With some G3 high traction skins it should be awesome touring!
