Last year the Milligram wiped the floor with its competition. Not only is it the lightest production splitboard in the world, which makes ascents a dream, on the descents its combination of reactive handling, explosive pop and a fluid, soulful flex pattern makes every single meter of vertical climbed, worth the effort.
So how did we get the weight so low? Replacing fiberglass with carbon was the first step, its strength-to-weight ratio is off the chart. The Milligram’s core is a jigsaw of different woods: Lightweight Balsa and Paulownia replace Poplar in low impact areas and Birch takes the brunt of any impact around the bindings. Low viscosity Aero Epoxy allows exact resin dosing, any excess is squeezed-out of the board during pressing, saving valuable grams.
New Tanga Technology is a partial topsheet which prevents unwanted chipping along the sidewalls from touring, and Glass Impact Pads under the bindings prevent topsheet damage from the sharp corners of CNC'd splitboard bindings.
With its unique Topless Construction the Milligram’s imperfections are often visible. We’re unapologetic. The Milligram is all about performance, so when the “perfect aesthetic” adds 250grams, we’d rather go without.
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Cruise Camber’s toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards and skis a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.
