    I know nothing about their boards, but it’s good to see someone else making a splitty.

    I took one out last year for a Demo. They only had one and it wasn’t really the right size for me, so it felt a bit awkward. I tried to order the larger model and couldn’t get them to sell one. If they get their production together I think the will have a nice product.

    I actually just ordered a Sentury BC splitty so I’ll post what I think once I receive it and ride it a few times. From what the rep told me and the info on their website, it’s supposed to handle most conditions well, handmade bomber construction, and is about a pound lighter than the competition. We’ll see I guess.

    hey, let us know how your sentury splitboard goes…. and how does it compare with other splitboards ?

    can anyone recommend boots if i plan on hiking up with/without crampons?

    Hard-I have no idea.
    Soft-Seems like most splitboarders where Salomon Malamutes and Driver X’s. That is a BIG generalization by the way. If you use soft boots you have to use strap crampons. Most of the soft booters that I go with use Stubai Ultralight camps.

    Well I said I’d get back with a report on the Sentury BC Split I had ordered back in Jan but as of today, 11-27-09, I still haven’t gotten the board or a refund…Not real impressed needless to say. Any of you Reno guys want to stop by Sentury and pick up a few Karma points and tell Ben Harmon to send me a refund ASAFP? PLEASE??? He knows who I am. After 268 phone calls, 397 emails, and the local Reno chapter of the BBB contacting them, still no luck. Custy Service dept not really doing their job…any help is greatly appreciated out there.

    any update on the board? i’m doing research on which split board to get – and was leaning towards sentury due to cost (hardware/skins included w/board), but reading comments like this isn’t inspiring.

    I personally would stay away from Sentury as there are plenty of companies making splitboards out there that actually send you a snowboard when you pay for it and respond to customer service inquiries. I’ve seen several complaints about Sentury in various forums about their customer service deficiencies (like no response whatsoever…) and while it looks to be a decent splitboard, I’ve personally never seen or heard about someone riding a Sentury. I still haven’t received a refund or splitboard from Sentury even after 2 contacts from the Reno BBB and they never responded to them either thus giving them a rating of “F” on their A-F scale. IMHO, I’d go with Venture or Prior and the newer Voile is a pretty decent ride too.

    Best of luck and have a great season.

    Hey Alex,

    Do you have actual pictures of the spliboards? I’ve been to your website and there are only drawings and minimal specs about the board.

    More details would help the decision process.

    what a disappointment of a company. i was very prepared to purchase a sentury splitboard and support a local company (i live in truckee, 35 miles away from reno), but had to reconsider after hearing nothing positive about the company. aside from the fact that i heard more than one account of people’s boards not being delivered or being extremely delayed, i still wanted to give them a fair chance. after not getting a response back from Sentury asking a few general questions about the boards, i’ve decided to spend quite a bit more money on a company out of the area, in a different ski town. why waste money and time on a failed enterprise when there are real companies that cater to real backcountry riders. does Sentury not realize that there are such forums like this where people talk about this stuff? and to think that they share a factory with such a successful and reputable company like Moment, you’d think they would have their shit together. the reason i’m most upset is that i really wanted to support a local company and be proud to ride a board made close to home. not gonna happen, boys. let us know when you pull your heads out of your asses.

    This post is the top result for google searches for both Sentury Splitboard and Sentury splitboard review.

    You would think that they would put some effort into making the-gear-recycler happy. Or maybe just upping their online presence and customer service. Not so good for them.

    hmmmmm…

    did this ever get resolved? I’d like to buy local as well, but there’s no way I’d order anything from these guys based on the info in this thread. sounds like the splitboard version of 333 skis… except they actually have a factory.

    Seems like a lot of bashing in here. Their website seems legit enough. That team board looks pretty sweet!

    Its sucks that these guys have such a bad rep. Maybe they can turn stuff around…

    #611459

    Yea buddy I actually have a sneak peak of one of next years boards. I’ll get back on by the end of the day and post some pictures!

    I don’t know what else to say. We addressed the problem, and the gear-recyclers money was refund. This was a Proform we recieved last year that was sent out, it was never recieved. Once I discovered there was a problem we sent the gear recycler a check in the mail for a full refund. These things happen, we were not intentionally trying to defaud a customer.
