The TALPS is not a snowboard cut in half! It is not a pure freeride board, nor an all- mountain board. It’s a splitboard designed to evolve in the mountains! The goal of it’s shape is to combine the performance of a ski on the uphill and efficiency in all terrain types on the downhill. The TALPS is equipped with a large radius allowing excellent grip on hard snow, steep slopes, and even on big traverses that are sometimes inevitable.This same radius allows smooth carving without fishtailing, guaranteeing perfect control of the board in sometimes delicate terrain. Add a pin tail to it (tips wider than the tail) and you have a TALPS that is both practical, playful, and floats in powder.
