The versatile and robust Pencil Split is particularly suitable for short to medium-long hikes, within the resort or touring missions. It’s an all-rounder for effortless turns in all types of snow conditions. The slight swallowtail offers you some playfulness out the back, but still has the stability and torsion you need to hold an edge throughout the turn. Its taper makes it easy going from edge to edge, and the shape generally feels more reactive and short than what it appears. Two extra edges on the inside and a split-specific flex pattern offer perfect grip in climb-mode and when crossing icy passages. It features Union clips, nose and tail hooks, and the voile insert pattern (most widely used in the industry). The nose holes secure our U-Hook skin mounting system. If you are looking for unforgettable soul turns, the Pencil Split is what you want.
