Venture Zephyr Splitboard 2013

Update your snowboarding arsenal with the Venture Zephyr Splitboard. The Zephyr is made to demolish the entire mountain; whether it be varied terrain or conditions or riding style, the Zephyr can do it all. High speed powder turns, bombing chutes, ridiculous backcountry jibs and droppin' untouched bowls are just a few examples of where this 100% made in America splitboard excells. For a board that is made to be sustainable, made in America, and is the flagship of the Venture splitboards line, pick up the Venture Zephyr Splitboard.
Rocker Type
Rocker - Flat between the bindings with a mellow uplift on the tip and tail, this profile offers increased maneuverability and floatation without sacrificing stability or edge hold.
Sidecut
Quadratic Sidecut - The combination of flex and sidecut is Venture's secret sauce and is essential for balancing playfulness with control. Quadratic sidecuts help distribute pressure evenly on the snow, boosting stability and edge hold.
Core
Handmade FSC Core - Made from a poplar/ash mix, the poplar lends lightweight strength, while ash provides impact resistance and durability. Ash strips at the edges and under the inserts strengthen the areas the experience the most stress and deliver better edges hold on icy slopes. From day one Venture has only used Forest Stewardship Council certified hardwoods to make their cores. This ensure the wood is grown and harvested sustainably.
Laminates
Triaxial Fiberglass - Torsional stiffness is the key to good edge hold, especially on a rockered board. With fibers aligned in the direction of torsional stress, triaxial fiberglass is the best material for the job and offers superior torsional stiffness and rock solid edging.
Sidewalls
P-Tex Sidewall - For bombproof durability, all Venture boards come with rugged sintered P-Tex sidewalls.
Base
Durasurf Sintered Base - A Durasurf sintered base leads to fewer gouges from rocks and better wax absorption for a slick, fast ride. No other base material comes close to its speed without significantly sacrificing durability.
Edges
Full wrap steel edge
Topsheet
Castor Bean Topsheets - New for the 2012-2013 season is the Castor Bean Topsheet. All of Venture's boards will be made with the Castor Bean Topsheet made from the oil of castor beans. This further enhances Venture's mission to be environmentally friendly.
Graphics
Inlaid Base Graphics - Boards with inlaid base graphics have an advantage over printed graphics because with inlay, the base material bonds directly with the other components rather than with a weak layer of ink.
Additional Features
Wind Power - Venture has been running their entire operation on 100% wind power since 2004. Using sustainable alternative energy source supports their conservation ethic and helps reduce their output of greenhouse gases that lead to global warming.
Made in the USA - All parts of Venture snowboards, from the base to the topsheet, are made from scratch in Silverton, Colorado.

Specs

  • Terrain: Splitboarding
    Splitboarding
    A splitboard snowboard is built specifically for the backcountry rider. Splitboards are designed to break down into two separate halves for touring and uphill travel (with climbing skins). Special bindings are required as well. Once you've reached the top of the terrain feature, you reconnect your splitboard for the ride back downhill. However, it's important to note that you will need appropriate backcountry tools, knowledge of the backcountry, weather and snow conditions and climbing skins to safely take advantage of the freedom of a splitboard. 
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a camber board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Warranty: 2 Years
