Don’t you want to feel an overwhelming stoke and exhilarating excitement EVERY time you strap in? The Telos DST is designed to do just that - named for its Dual Swallow Tip shape, the DST is a backcountry Slayer, a quiver of one that was designed to be what snowboarding was always meant to be. An all-mountain touring board that is lightning fast, ferociously fun and easy to ride on any terrain or in any conditions. From the tree-line to the gnarliest peaks or conditions, the DST remains forever faithful and forgiving. It allows you to do things you thought were impossible on other boards. The stability and edge hold combined with the edge to- edge control truly makes the DST an agile board that can handle anything you throw at it and will have you smiling from ear to ear while doing it.

ONEBALL Bio-Green Wax – All Telos Boards are shred-ready straight from the shop and are responsibly waxed from the factory with ONEBALL Jay Bio-Green Wax, made from renewable soy beans.
ELECTRA BASE – Telos high-speed, graphite infused, sintered base with die-cut logos is ultra-durable and helps eliminate the use of highly volatile solvents and chemicals used in typical inks. Solid color materials help to keep your bases looking fresh and the tighter molecular structure helps eliminate the possibility of unforeseen core shots from those gnarly backcountry sharks!
Transition Control Core – Poplar and Paulownia core with X-Wood technology are designed as two individual ski cores for peak touring performance that when combined create a stable and well-balanced torsional flex and stability for surfing out. Carbon fiber stringers provide additional pop and performance. Each core starts from raw lumber in our factory which is cut down to specifically calculated strips and laid up by hand with each piece exactly where it needs to be for Ultimate Flex, Feel and Durability.
Fiber-FleX Construction – Lightweight triaxial fiberglass makes the DST Freeride Split a lightweight workhorse for getting you through the backcountry. Full layers of fiberglass laminated above and below the Poplar and X-Wood core create a lightweight and durable combination that absorbs anything you throw at it while giving you just the right flex, stability and fun.
PERMA-FleX Resin – Telos proprietary resin that we’ve developed and used since the 1990s is still the only NO-VOC Resin used in the industry today. Many companies claim to use “Bio-resin” that may use sustainable filler materials but still also contain Volatile Organic Compounds that are harmful to our environment. Telos Perma-Flex Resin uses non-harmful specially formulated elastomers that not only locks in the camber and flex for the lifetime of the board but has the highest tested bonding strength of any other resin used in the industry today.
Sustainable Textured topsheet – Textured nylon topsheet made from castor beans is sustainable, durable and helps protect against edge rash when touring. This mother-earth friendly material is scratch resistant, lightweight, printed with solvent free inks and offers a semi-transparent view to the core technology inside.
Seamless Polyurethane sidewalls - Polyurethane sidewalls give you the confidence that your edge will hold when going into a hard carve while also giving the playfulness you’re looking for and also great for helping save edge rash when touring.
Aluminum Tip protection – Specially designed aluminum tip and tail protectors give added protection and durability in the backcountry without additional weight.
Ceramic edge tuned – All Telos splitboards come with factory tuned inner and outer edges with detuned tips and tails for trail ready fun.
Phantom Hercules Clips – All Telos Splitboards come with easy to use, Phantom Hercules clips which have a sleek and lightweight design combined with durable and super stable functionality.
Thinserts™ Top Mount system – Hole-less base and bridge-less top mount splitboard clip system. Specially designed inserts and top mount hardware that keep you base clean and your top flush and with easy to mount inserts.
