    No new cambered boards?

    Looks like the Nitro got rid of the Thunder. Is the Chimera Mace the only regular camber board still being made?

    Jones are going to split the Aviator, which is a fully cambered board (so far I think they offer it only as a solid board).

    And Prior’s Shotgun. Though the picture says rocker, it comes traditionally cambered; rocker upon request.

    Last year’s (or the year before that) gear thread had a link to a european splitboard magazine (Splitboard Mag?) which had a run down of all the manufacturers who made a split. . . and I mean all: the big names, American & Canadian start ups, and all these EU and Japanese companies I had never heard of. Anyway the thing I was blown away by was even though it seemed like “the year of the cam-rock/banana” thing—and none of the major manufacturers (Jones’ Hovercraft & Prior’s BC exempted) offered an S-rocker (Rocker in front-Camber in rear)—there were loads of EU brands I’d never heard of and that’s all they had.
    I’m sure there were traditionally cambered boards there, but I don’t remember them (b/c I wasn’t in the market for one).
    Come to think of it, it was the year before Burton’s Landlord and K2’s Ultrasplit were unveiled with “the channel” for splittys.

    Yes, I think here in Europe riders prefer the traditional camber shapes, because of the more variable conditions in our mountains. Most of the European brands use mainly camber for their boards.

    Is it the variable snow conditions or that traditions die hard in Europe? 🙂

    I wonder what shape the black magic will be patterened after? The Odin? Hopefully it will be significantly lighter and not just carbon for stiffness.

    From the picture it looks like there is some camber in there. Looks similar to my landlord. But being that it is a venture I’m sure it will have less slop.

    The Black Magic has the shape of the new Zelix. It’s actually quite soft for a carbon board, and yes – it’s significantly lighter than the Zelix. The board looked pretty nice.

    And the newest Zelix is based on the K Jones model from their shape shack last year if I’m not mistaken.

    Looks like a sweet ride! I myself went to an ultracraft this season to shed some weight over the 3 ventures i have. That being said, i really like the lightweight for touring but… kind of wish it had the durability of a venture!! Only issue i see is the topsheet color. I love the carbon look of the blackmagic and the ultracraft, but such a dark topsheet doesnt shed snow too well. Ive never scarped my topsheet as much as i have with my ultracraft! We need a white version for Colorado 🙂 stoked to see the weight being cut down by venture. Now can i get next yrs euphoria in carbon with a white topsheet with a little swallow tail in there?? AT least i can always dream 🙂

    G3 Scapegoat Carbon 158,166,174 weighing in at 5lb 13oz

    Got to fondle the 166 Scapegoat last weekend at Coldsmoke. Didn’t get to chatting with Richard, the rep, but I am super impressed. I like where splitboards are going, this is a serious mountain tool. Slap a titanal mounting plate in it for dynasplitters, get me a proform and I’m set for life.

    That was Pontus

    Nice, the one board I want to try!

    Is there another way to view the Rome catalog? That format seems to crash my web browser, both of them.

    Splitboard Japan had a couple shots showing how much rear lean you can can expect from the next years 32 Jones boot and next years XV Deeluxe boot.

    Is this the Rossignol 2014/2015, or 2015/2016 collection?
