This is my main powder-hound now and it's been keeping me floaty and steady in everything that comes with PNW powder. (See vid below of a double black diamond drop on this board)
If you ride the PNW you know that a powder day might also include parts of the mountain with slop, chop, and chunder so having a board that can do a little of everything is key to a fun day powder-hunting. This board will keep you going through it all! I've loved it as my powder board!
I tend to get very comfortable with my snowboard gear and find it difficult to change, but after switching to the Zeitgeist splitboard from Pallas I realized just how much my old boards were holding me back. So, I bit the bullet and ordered the 155 Epiphany snowboard. Initially I was really concerned it was going to be too big, because next to my old 155 the Epiphany is definitely longer and wider, and the very different shape was intimidating. It did take me a few runs to get comfortable with the larger size and different shape, but now I am absolutely in LOVE and my riding has jumped to the next level. Surprisingly for the larger size, this board is so fast and agile, holds firm on ice and crud, whips through moguls, and floats like a dream in powder.
For an intermediate to advanced rider ready to level-up, this board is well worth the money. And I get so many complements every time I take her out... she is a beautiful board!!!
I got this board for Christmas and I’m loving it so far! It’s light and super flexible. It’s crushed absolutely everything I’ve thrown at it from powder tree runs to rails in the terrain park, to being in the horns of a toboggan. I have only one negative…. It’s a SOFT board. I’ve only been riding it about a month and it looks like I’ve been riding it for 2 years. Listen I’m a ski patroller and I do a lot on my board and I’m riding it about 5 days out of the week in the winter, and this board just hasn’t held up well. I have an older hedonist that I’ve had for 2 years and it still looks so great minimal chips and no ribbons or anything like that. I patrolled on my hedonist for 2 years and rode the hell out of it just as much as this new Oversoul. However the Oversoul just hasn’t held up as well. I’m a little disappointed because I know Pallas puts out some really great sturdy boards. But my new Oversoul had chips out of it the first day I road it. If you’re in to the cosmetics just something to think about. I try to look at my boards as equipment to be used first and looked at second. Chips and all the boards still rides great and you’ll have to pry it from my cold dead hands to get me off of it.
I fell in love with this board when a friend rented the Zeitgeist for a backcountry trip and I watch her ride and tour with jealousy as I fought with my tank of a splitboard. So last year I bit the bullet and bought one for myself. I love it so much that I want to ride it on WhistlerBlackcomb everyday (apparently this isn't cool... lol). Fast, light, and agile, I just need to think about my next move and she does it. Effortlessly plows through and over POW, and the arrow tip helps to keep from getting bogged down and stuck. Holds tight on icy slopes, and handles well on the groomers when coming back from slackcountry. The only drawbacks I've encountered is it's difficult when I need to ride switch (i.e. in the trees), and the short tail forced me to change my riding style (for the better) on cattracks.
I have also found the customer support at Pallas to be amazing!
I’m not one for ever feeling motivated to write a review on something, but riding my Epiphany Split for the first time has forced me to tell everyone how amazing this board is. The preseason conditions where I am created a mix between deep power and firm packed chunky ice snow. Usually a board for me has crushed either of these conditions but never both. When I tell you I have never held an edge so well, I mean it. I was CRUSHING my group down the mountain on this board. Like riding faster than my male skier friends type of crushing. I’ve been searching for an aggressive board for awhile now that can truly handle the varying conditions, steepness, and demand the mountain I normally ride requires, and the ephiphany is the answer to the board I’ve been looking for! Diving this edge into the snow was effortless and it held so well. I am so stoked to continue riding this board, and hopefully getting myself the snowboard version here shortly! If you needed a sign to buy this board, this is it folks.
Never want to take it off. And customer service is amazing!
Obsessed with my new flannel that I don’t want to take off ever <3 thanks for so many pockets and the softest flannel and for tying knots in the hoodie strings so the washer doesn’t steal it.
This board was light and easy to use on the uphill, easy to put together at the top, and super fun to ride in deep snow. It turns on a dime, easily keep the tip up and bounces up out of the pow in a good way. This board is playful, light and fun.
Great shirt, the lining feels so nice on the skin. It is a slimmer fit, which I like. The sleeves are not super long for those of you with long arms, if I had it my way they'd be a half inch longer, but they're still long enough that the shirt is comfy and not awkward. Totally recommend :)
I love this board in the backcountry. I ride a 151 in resort, and sized up to 155 for the backcountry and am happy with the results. It's sturdy and fun and manageable in any conditions. I also love supporting a bad ass female-founded business.
My one large complaint is the clips used to transition from skis to board. IMO they are a terrible design and make for difficult transitions. Snow and ice can get stuck around the top and bottom clip, making it difficult to slide into position, while also needing to keep the center clips in line and snapping into place. I've upgraded and customize to use the Karakoram clips and they are much better. Use Karakoram clips in your future iterations!
Everything about my experience with Pallas was awesome. The mail order demo program provides an amazing opportunity to try their boards out on your home turf. The company's mission to elevate women's snowboarding is inspiring, and I'm excited to support women who are uplifting other women! And the board is UNREAL (not to mention beautiful). I'm not the quiver type, so I was looking for a daily driver that's aggressive on steeps, holds an edge on hard pack, plows through chunder, and floats in pow. The Epiphany delivered in every category. I felt like a freight train on icy groomers - it's the most stable board I've ever ridden! - and really enjoyed the playfulness and poppiness it offers without sacrificing float on deep days. I've been riding a board that's way too long for 20 years and, at their rep's suggestion, decided to downsize with the Epiphany, which was a great decision - turns were less work and more fun. Can't say enough great things about these folks, their boards, or what they're doing for the sport!
Waw, this board is amazing at so many levels ! Liteweight and stable to skin uphill ! Smooth and responsive to ride in whatever snow conditions... I feel realy confident to go explore anywhere with this splitboard..
So great to see a company ruled by such a group of baddas womens with nice values :)
This board is fantastic. It loves to charge and I've used it in all conditions and it rocks! It plows through heavy snow easily, it loves pow, and held a good edge on some icy windblown conditions too. I'm really impressed with the top sheet material as well. All my other friends boards (bought around the same time) have chips all over and this thing has yet to have a chip on its topsheet, and that is not because I'm not using it hard! Crazy durable. Highly recommend this board!
2022 and still waiting on powder, so I’ve played with this board on groomers, hitting side jumps and getting into some deep carves and I’ve fallen deeply in love! This board is so ridiculously fun it should be illegal. The board is much prettier in person also. The artwork is more detailed than the internet picture shows. I can’t wait to try her in powder!
I bought this for my wife for a gift and she absolutely loves it. The design and fit are spot on and the integrated hood is nice for when you don't have your Toque on!
