Sneak Peek: Next Season’s New Weston Carbon Backwoods Split Board
The big news for Weston Snowboards is that next season they will have a carbon version of their super successful Backwoods Split Board. This is their flagship split board which has a tapered directions shape with a rockered nose making it ideal for powder riding and surfy turns.
Weston reengineered the Backwoods split create a carbon slit board with guts by maintaining its freeride flex. They used a Paulownia wood core with a carbon top sheet which dropped the boards weight by 1.3 pounds. To ensure it was still durable and able to drop cliff shots a reinforced core is used in front of and behind the bindings where stresses are highest. Aluminum stingers further the durability of the board and help dampen the ride. The new Carbon Backwoods Split Board will retail for $1099US and be available in Fall 2019.
