LAB Carbon Split Review - Splitboard Magazine

Aug 18, 2014

Last winter we shipped the guys at Splitboard Magazine our flagship splitboard the LAB Carbon Split to get their opinion on the board. Not only did the board receive Splitboard Magazine's Innovation award, it got some pretty exciting feedback too.


"We found this Amplid one of the most impressive boards on the test. Ultra light, reactive but kind, easy to turn, stable on all kinds of terrain and snow, with a stiff but progressive flex and a considerable torsion for a carbon board. The down part is it feels a bit shaky at high speed, mostly due to its length. We hope Amplid considers making it longer in the future, as most of the staff -except for the female member- would be psyched to test it. The generous rocker provides great floatability riding this 157cm board on deep powder. Skinning up, it feels like a super light and comfortable machine, although it lacks a bit of effective edge, mostly due to the fat rocker on the nose. A true beauty though."


The Splitboard Magazine team awarded the LAB Carbon Split the following ratings:


Pop - 9/10 | Torsion - 9/10 | Flex - 9/10 | Groomed Snow - 9/10 | Off Piste 9/10 | Floatability - 8/10
