Just wondering if anyone has experience splitting a ride with the array 3 carbon? I'm thinking it should cut fine, any thoughts?

Don't have any experience cutting those cores but have plenty cutting carbon mountain bike bars, seat posts, etc. If it has similar properties you shouldn't have any issues.

Wear a mask though. That dust is toxic.

Word. Carbon dust does bad things to your lungs.

Boards that have a lot of carbon fiber are not always good to split. The reason is that the carbon fiber is a weave under tension, when you cut them it can alleviate the tension and the board may rebound. The carbon fiber is structural and when certain pressures are changed it may not hold its original shape. Understand?

I cut a board with carbon fiber topsheet and it "rebounded"; and the camber tripled! Needless to say it was a waste of a very nice board. YMMV

Cheers!
