Apo Apocalypse 162

The title is a little misleading, this is a soon to be splitboard for next season. It looks absolutely tits! I cant wait, but I guess I will have to...

ImageImage

I would like to thank Will from Spark, Regis Rolland & Nathalie from Apo for hooking me up!

I will be getting some LT brackets and probably will have it cut with a water-jet (so I don't lose any width). Beyond that I am not sure how I will put it together. I will try to post up some photos as it progresses.

Pedro out!

That looks like a sweet ride. Perhaps it's the angle of the photos, but it looks to have quite a bit of taper. Do you have specs on it?

Not quite like the Kyber, less taper, a lot less sidecut, more effective edge and lower profile tip and tail. Its very stiff too (me likey!).
I have learned not to trust the spec sheet for boards as they tend to lie or exaggerate.

Apo 162 Kyber 160

EE 119 EE 118.3
nose 29.2 nose 30.9
waist 25 waist 25.5
tail 28.6 tail 28.7
radius 10.5 radius 8
taper 1cm taper 2.2

But it has a sibling (still in the wrapper) :bananas: Same shape a little different construction and a little softer and spoonier nose.
I would love to try out a swallowtail but dont know if I can ride it switch very well :scratch:

End of the apocalypse. :cry:

After close to a dozen attempts, i finally got a board to pretty much make it through whole season. Sadly it blew up on last trip of the spring. First at the front chinese hook, and then in front of the front binding. Not an a typical break. Probably user error.

Without a doubt the best ride I've had yet. Worked great in pow, and shit you pants steep. Amazed how well it charged despite it's lack of weight. Edge hold? Phenominal!

Thanks for the great ride pedro. Really gonna miss this one.

The family is still rolling strong! But I have no intention of splitting that one. In the market for a new solid board for next season. Any line an another apocalypse? Doesn't seem to be listed as a board on apo's website.
