Don't play the blame game.
Don't even bother trying to come up with an excuse; you skipped work because it snowed 16 inches overnight and the G3 Scapegoat Carbon Splitboard was begging you to go play in it—we're sure your boss will understand. This powder-slaying beast features insanely light and responsive full Carbon Stealth construction that's more than ready for trips deep into the backcountry, and is equipped with a powder-specific rocker profile and 40mm of taper in the tail for superior, surfy floatation.
With G3's Powder Rocker profile, the Scapegoat has camber underfoot and a large rockered nose to sink the tail of the board and lift the nose high out of the super deep stuff, resulting in ultra-quick responsiveness in tight trees and effortless float that keeps leg burn at bay. Without any fiberglass, the Carbon Stealth construction delivers an unbelievably lightweight ride that's super strong and torsionally stable for quick slashes and responsive turns, while the poplar and paulownia wood core boosts strength and keeps the feel lively.
Premium ABS/TPU sidewalls enhance impact-resistance and power transfer for when the terrain is more demanding, and the full thickness alloy steel edges are extra tough and corrosion-resistant to withstand seasons of abuse. Stealth Razor Edge profiling makes the board thinner near the edges (expect near the inserts) to reduce mass without sacrificing grip or durability. Rounding out this board, the P-Tex 2000 Electra base is extremely fast and carries speed over flats without losing steam down in deep snow.

G3 is Awesome
I got the scapegoat for weight intensive big mountain tours, expedition travel, and long ice and alpine approaches. It does all of them exceptionally well and I am very satisfied with the product. I make a strong point to buy only functional use specific products and the Scapegoat fits the bill. It is very light on drawn out tours, and is very light on my pack when class 5 rock and ice need to be traveled, and it rides like a solid deck. Honestly it rides better than any other split I've been on, including the coldsmoke voodoo, jones solution, Voile freeride, and burton familytree. G3 is also a very trustable company. I had another deck from them that had a core faliure. G3 took care of the problem very well in a timely manner. They compensated by giving me a new deck from the un released next year lineup, they hooked me up with clothes, and a fresh pair of skins. Bottom line you cannot go wrong with G3, they are very professional with their service and will take care of you. This is where it really pays extra to go with a G3. Yeah that shiny buron split looks fresh, but get something that works from a company that will stand behind you is a lot better. I hope my experience with this company helps you make a decision on your next split.
Hard charging on the uphill
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been on the prowl for this board for a while. I picked up the 166cm. This board was to be my backup, epic long day and mountaineering board. Going from a 167 Rossignol XV, the shape was similar and the weight was just right.
After a few long tours, some fine tuning resort laps and tons of hot laps it is now my everyday driver with a few quirks.
The ride: Like any other directional free ride board, this rips. Charges through crude. Floats in the light stuff and can still lay a solid carve down. Long taper makes the board manuverable and wide nose keeps it afloat. Its wide in the 166 compared to my XV its over 1cm wider from nose to tail but same shape. Less playful and doesn't charge as hard.
Touring: Its light! stupid light! The board mounted with Karakoram Prime1 bindings weighs as much as my GNU Billy Goat 165 with Ride bindings.
Good float and lift when breaking trail. G3 high traction skins fit nicely with a long tail in the
