Who says you cant charge hard on carbon definitely never road the Carbon Backwoods. It floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee!
I was shocked and almost worried by how light it was the first time I held it. A few days later I was standing at the top of an icy couloir with my axe in hand. The conditions were absolutely awful but the Carbon backwoods didn't care. It made quick work out the situation and I was absolutely blown away by the performance. usually there's some kind of sacrifice getting boards that light. The Carbon backwoods proved thats no longer true! You'll be thankful for its weight savings on those long days and deep trail breaking while providing confidence inspiring performance and a damp ride in any terrain you can throw it at!
Been out on it three times. Gives me a new, better look at the local mountain. Ready to find some new lines. Game changer. Life changer. Get one and save money on a pass the next decade.
Light, functional. Easy to use ARC bindings. Pomoca skins look like artwork hanging on the wall.
Been on this deck for a season and half now. I love the carbon. I've demoed a couple other brands carbons and this one feels really good. It really is as amazing as the description makes it sound.
Whether you are getting your first split or you've decided to finally make the jump to a carbon board you are going to love this thing! I've ridden multiple boards from Voile, OZ, and Weston and I am a Backwoods convert. I ride the 157 with a Spark hardboot setup and I have never used a better touring machine. The board performed really well after 60 plus days of use last season and I was super impressed with how the bases held up after a particularly rocky descent in the Tobacco Roots in Montana. If you want a sweet powder board that holds up well in big mountain terrain this is the board you need!!
Backwoods Carbon is an awesome toy and a killer tool in the backcountry. The light weight and longitudinal stiffness make it great for precision skinning. Even when the skin track has exposed roots and ice slicks and slippy sidehills.
Its just a blast on the downhill too. The light swing weight, plus the solid feel, is confidence inspiring in high consequence steep terrain. And the directional shape makes it perform delightfully in more playful terrain.
I took this deck on a split board traverse of the entire Sangre de Cristo Range. Over the course of 13 days, and more than 100 miles of travel this thing ripped and felt light the whole way. I beat this thing up and it continued to perform. Not to mention we had almost 70 pound packs, and riding under that load felt like no big deal, especially ripping down the South Couloir on Crestone Peak.
