The Kodama packs a hell of a lot of surface area into its one-hundred-and-fifty-six centimeters, and if you translate its name from Japanese you’ll quickly find out what kind of rider it’s built for: “The Spirit Living in the Forest”. With most of the surface area shifted towards the nose, it’s made for cork-like float while a stubby tail enables quick turns while out surfing the woods.
The all black base makes core-shot surgery even easier. Transitions just got faster, too: new for ALL our Splitboards in 23-24 are holes at the tip and tail to make mounting skins easier. Self-propelled low-vis stormchasing just got even funner.
Amplid Kodama Splitboard
Low Camber W/ Early Rise - A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Its toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.
Lite Core - Uber light wood varieties are cut, treated and aligned in a way only our factory knows. Its strength to weight ratio has scientists baffled.
Pre-Cured Impact Pads - Tough, pre-cured composite impact plates placed beneath bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet dings and breakages.
Biaxial Glass - Using Biaxial Glass in the construction of our shreds gives them a flawless blend of response and playfulness whilst keeping them ridiculously lightweight.
Extruded 4 Base - If we didn’t tell you, you’d think this base was sintered. Amplid’s mind-boggling extruded base material offers next level glide properties and rarely needs waxing.
All Terrain Tips - A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
Split Tune - We lightly round the edges at the tip and tail, outside of the effective edge. Blunting these edges reduces chipping to the topsheet during skinning.
Bolted Tip Clips - Using threaded bolts instead of rivets allows broken tip clips to be easily replaced, on the hill, without the need for a workshop full of tools.
Custom Clips - Forged aluminium board hooks, designed in-house by Amplid’s R&D team, offer a dependable, but weightless connection between board halves and have a slick matt black aesthetic.
