As we reported last month from the SIA trade show in Denver CO, Voile has really stepped up their game next year thanks to the new partnership with Sentury Snowboards founder Ben Harmon. Ben brings his experience in the way of everything from core construction, board design, manufacturing, graphics, and more. His influence is evident as Voile is proud to announce the new Artisan splitboard. Voile's new splitboard has a directional twin shape, p-tex sidewalls, and features a combination of rocker, camber and flat base-profiles. The Artisan splitboard also comes in both men's and women's models, includes laser etched hardware, and dual climbing bars are now the standard!
Salt Lake City Utah, Feb. 16 2012 — Voile is proud to introduce the new Artisan splitboard, A directional twin board with an innovative rocker/camber profile, the Artisan spares no expense or detail in design and construction.
The unique rocker/camber profile incorporates rocker into the overall shape with camber tucked in beneath the bindings. The rocker offers amazing float in powder, the flat center section is efficient for uphill touring, while the camber sections offer a poppy and stable ride on firm snow.
From top to base, a durable 3D nylon topsheet graphic, full aspen wood core, double sintered UHMW sidewall, and sublimated sintered base are just few details we sweated over on this beautiful new split.
