This is a brand new 159 Howler split that came out of the press with a little defect. Structurally solid. A small misalignment of the molds resulted in a wrinkled/wavy topsheet on two corners. Just the two spots were affected and only effect other than cosmetic is less than a dozen extra grams of weight. Includes our standard 2-year warranty coverage including affected area. See the Howler Splitboard page for technical info and description.
