Are you using any new materials in your hardware for 24/25? If so, what, and why?
We introduce a new splitboard in our collection. It took us years to do for the only reason we didn’t want to introduce an extra split, but really ad something unique out there. Which we achieved with the Escape Split. It’s a performant & versatile allmountain splitboard featuring our Master Core boosted with Pop Carbon, N-7000 base and Karakoram Ultraclips 2.0 for ultimate lock precision, all together at a very affordable price. It comes with a real premium finish : flush base tip to tail, no bolted clips, tail clip aluminum plate and bulletproof absorbnid top sheet. To make your life even easier we’ve developed precut skins with an easy lock system.

Any big advancements in functionality? Skinning, transitions, etc, as well as riding?
Thanks to the Karakoram Ultraclip 2.0, clipping board altogether can’t be any safer and easier.

Prices: Which area of the market do you primarily cater to, price-wise? Has this changed at all in recent times, or is it pretty consistent?
We introduce a single model at the highest quality for the most affordable cost available. We aim the rider who’s looking for a modern premium split as a first buy or not.

Please tell us about the dominant visual themes in your 24/25 gear, including any interesting artist collabs you have lined up.
Our Escape Split’s graphic concept is technically made of parametric pattern and gradient that let you see its core and carbon stringer inside.

Most brands tell us that selling in store is really important for splitboard gear, as it’s where you can get good advice. Can this be maintained post-COVID, or will you be looking to find more customers online?
Sure we push our customer to get the most information as they can and before making this kind of buy. We feel as our responsibility everyone buying a splitboard to fully understand the risks of going out of tracks first, and second to feel trained and confident about how to use the gear.

What are your three biggest European markets for splitboard hardware?
Swiss, France, Germany-Austria are the euro top buyers for sure, specially past season where most of the resort shut close. We feel the trend is going on this season, let’s see how it’ll in the close future.
