Blems are largely due to cosmetic imperfections or subtle shaping processes which we evolved out of and thus downgraded prior versions to spotlight improvements. There is nothing wrong with the integrity of these boards and we back the warranty on these just as we would production grade snowboards. All current year blems are listed at a 10% discount below retail price based on the issue.
Explanations and/or photos of specific blemishes are available upon request. For any additional questions, do not hesitate to reach us via email to email@example.com, live chat (left side of any page on the website) or by phone at 801.415.1815.
The BelleTour was developed for high peaks, long walks, epic lines, pillow popping, and everything in between. The first-ever implementation of Algal Core and Algal Wall in a split board provides symbiosis between you and your pursuits. A wider waist, slight swallowtail, and snappy sidecut integrate to create a shape that floats and planes as well as it pivots. Designed to optimize stiffness and performance for both touring and descending, you’re tagging lines no matter the conditions.
The BelleTour’s core profile differs from that of the BelleAire, with an increase in thickness approaching the waist of the board, which gives the board a stiffer, evenly distributed, and supportive feel when touring, especially when breaking trail. While riding your favorite line, this increase in waist stiffness avoids the soft, vague feel that typically plagues splitboard designs that are simply the result of cutting a solid in half. The engineered cross blocks increase torsional rigidity and reduce longitudinal stiffness for a stable, intuitive, and nimble ride. The end result is a split destined for long days of human-powered access, yet rides just like its solid sibling when it comes time to drop.
