I just saw them on Facebook the other day.
Never heard about them before and now they posted this picture claiming the world's lightest splitboard.

Amplid was the first brand I saw featuring a rocker-camber profile, some years ago!
they makes awesome boards, the Morning split received great reviews in our annual splitboard test.

They just released a limited edition board being the lightest board in the market at 2.3kg / 5.07 lbs!

I have one of these: http://www.amplid.com/outlet/snowboards ... rd-2012/13

It's ace. I've loved the whole flat profile for a while and this is doing the business.

Morning Split is on order....

I feel i would destroy this board in short order. Isn't carbon fibers weakness impact resistance?

Hi fellow splitboarders,

I'm not 100% sure it's forum etiquette for the first post after joining a forum to be a conversation about your own brand, but hey.

Amplid is a European snowboard and ski brand co-founded and owned by ex pro-snowboarder Peter Bauer. We've been producing snowboards for the last nine years with a focus on technology and lightweight construction, so we have plenty of experience with building strong snowboards with the least material and in particular resin possible.

Two winters ago Peter began developing a new powder board which has become the Amplid Morning Glory. It took a few prototypes to get the camberline right and the stance position but once it was right, the feedback from the testers was mind-blowing. On occassion during midwinter it can be a while between snowfalls in the alps and Amplid's team riders wanted to access the good remaining snow that wasn't accessible with a short hike from the lifts so we decided to develope the Morning Split. At 2.8kg the Morning Split is no heavy weight, and although it's a ridiculously easy split to ride for very lighterweight riders there's almost too much surface area.

We developed the LAB carbon split to be the ultimate splitboard for more flow and freestyle focused riders with a body weight between 55 and 75 kg. It weighs 2.3 kg which makes it the lightest splitboard on the market and really helps light to mid-weight riders endure longer tours.

You can find-out more about Amplid's splits and other boards at http://www.amplid.com, if you have any questions fire ahead.

Nice to get some more info.

I think it is fine to comment on your own brand, many other manufacturers do that on this forum.

LAB Carbon: More wasted technology on stone age designs :nononno:

The morning split looks cool though!

The LAB Carbon Split has a much more traditional shape than the Morning Split for sure, but the Geometry definitely isn't Stone Age. There's a touch of taper, eliptical nose scoop and S-Rocker camber line... these are all pretty recent snowboard design features. The board really rips in powder but the more convestional shape means it's very capable on hard snow in tight terrain too because of the length of the effective edge and the more all-mountain sidecut radius and waist width... plus you can ride it and land it switch which is what our lighter more freestyle focused team riders were demanding.

But I take your point there are more radical shapes out there, it's just horses for courses. The Carbon's Split is the right shape for what it's intended for.

Because of the low weight and supported rider weight I take it it's very soft? That can be an interesting board. I would consider it next season, if you produce another batch or new version.

Sure if you're at the upper end of the weight recommendations the Carbon Split will feel softer. The sweet-spot is 60kg to around 75kg.
