FEATURES of the Weston Snowboards Japow Splitboard
Slayer Wood Core - This is our bamboo/poplar splitboard core. It's designed to be energetic and damp.
Rugged Topsheet - Polymide is eco-friendly and made from castor beans. The topsheet is durable and resistant to scratches and scuffs.
Camber-Pow Rocker Nose - A large section of reverse camber in the nose gives unparalleled float while a mellow camber under the inserts continues to provide stability and pop in and out of turns.
Swallowtail - The tail on this board will help you swim through powder like a fish in the sea while maintaining durability as each tail is structurally reinforced with carbon.
Split Tech - We don’t skimp on our splitboards. You’ll see a full inner metal edge, complete with sidewall and dampening tape. Also, when facing a kickturn on a steep slope, you want all the help you can get - that’s why we balance our splitboards so that they are tail heavy.
Karakoram Ultra Clips - Ultra Clips deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Boltless Bases - By using fine threaded bolts we were able to provide a smooth finish to our bases for easier tuning and greater speed.
Forged Tips - Stainless steel metal tip and tail pieces protect from damage and increase durability.
Rooted Inserts - Just like roots help keep a plant grounded, flax reinforcement in areas of the core help increase strength and durability.
Tail V Carbon - Carbon fiber runs from the tail inserts to the tail contact points to provide added edge to edge response and spring in the tail.
Electra Sintered Base - Carbon additives distribute static friction across the base, creating a more even film of water to glide on and our fastest base.
Tri-Axe Glass - Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
UHMW PE Sidewalls - Highly durable sidewall that protects the splitboard's core from impact and increases torsional stability.
Stitched Tips - Our tip and tail spacers are stitched to the core to provide added durability.
1% For the Planet - 1% of our total sales goes to offset our carbon footprint and donate substantially to the National Forest Foundation.

Great SwallowtailAbsolutely my favorite board from Weston could not recommend enough! Brough this board with me on a multi-month tour of Hokkaido and could not be more stoked with my choice. It floats effortlessly in the deep pow, has a super fun surfy feel and a beautiful design to boot. Really impressed how easily it was to get my skins dialed and how well it performed in the backcountry. Also rode it a few times on groomers and thought it worked great. One of the best boards I've ever riden, if you haven't had a chance to try the Japow just yet you are missing out.

Fantastic Split Board[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] What a fantastic split board. As an avid splitboarder from Jackon Hole, this board has proven itself to a top of the shelf touring rig. Stiff and responsive, light and flexible. I've toured in some adverse conditions, and this board handles Crud, off cambers, ice, and of course POW with ease. 100% the best split rig I've used.

Best swallowtail on the market!First of all this board looks great, secondly it surfs and floats powder like it’s nobodies business! Surprisingly the Japow also can hold a mean edge and can carve on groomers like you wouldn’t believe. I highly recommend getting your hands on this board for the deepest pow days of your life.
