Imagine: You are in the middle of the backcountry and you spot the perfect line. But you have to get to the peak first. Of course, you want to get there quickly and effortlessly. So you need a light splitboard you can rely on. This is where the Millisurf comes into the game: The Millisurf is the fraternal twin of the Amplid Milligram. The super light carbon splitboard is just as its twin, but scores with its shape and extra surfing feeling.
As the name suggests: This ultra-light splitboard is made for surfing the white room.
The shape of the Millisurf Split is Tapered Directional, which means that the nose is slightly longer and wider than the tail. This results in more floatation in deep snow and more control.
This board features a Directional Cruise Camber profile, a half flat camber for all-mountain dominance. Its toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like a camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more "broken-in" feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid's directional boards, a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further. The 3D Crust Buster Nose consists of a curled-up edge along the nose, from the zero contact points towards the tip. Thanks to this new 3D-shaped nose geometry in combination with Amplid's elliptic nose cavity, you will experience a new dimension of floatation and turn initiation.
Due to the slightly harder flex (7/10) the Millisurf is made for precise lines and high speed with that extra surf feeling.
This splitboard features the BBP Core, the lightest wood core money can buy. Weightless Paulownia and Balsa are carefully arranged with stronger birch to save valuable grams without sacrificing strength. The Full Carbon Jacket is the most expensive fibre laminate in Amplid's arsenal. Carbon's tensile strength to weight ratio is unbeatable, as it allows the use of thinner, almost weightless laminates to achieve the same flex profile. Its responsive and energised feel is unique. The Sintered 7 HD Base is an ultra-high density sintered base that goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage. The Milligram is also built with Floatation Tips, which are ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards.
Spanning a snow hole with one split ski at full stride can snap it clean in two. That's why Amplid came up with the Powder Pontoon - extra, unidirectional carbon stringers along the underside of the core that increase the bending stiffness, reducing "dishing" in deep snow and increasing its breaking resistance. Tanga Technology, a partial, hardwearing topsheet material is used in areas where chipping might otherwise occur. This minimalist approach reduces weight for touring.
Amplid was the first snowsports brand to cater to skiers and snowboarders from the get-go. Brainchild of snowboard ledged Peter Bauer, the idea behind Amplid is to give people the best shred possible. Still sneaking off to the mountains ever chance he gets, Peter is the heart and soul of the operation. His genuine passion for snowsports shines through in every element of the company.
