• Excellent In Uneven Snow
  • Exceptional Pop for being this damp
  • Fun to turn.


  • Pow Float Lacks Compared to Some Peers


The Amplid Singular might not float as well as some All-Mtn Boards, but it's great in every other condition.

How It Was Tested

I rode the Amplid Singular on its own but then compared it against the Soul Mate, Souly Grail, Korua Otto, YES Basic Uninc, and Standard Uninc.

Approximate Weight

The Amplid Singular feels pretty normal in weight for its length and width.

(We don’t put in the exact weight because, with wood cores, there is no consistency in a boards weight)


If I were to buy a Singular, the 158 would be the call. If they had a 156, that would be ideal, but they go up by 4cm a board.

Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these boards. You can of course go bigger or smaller depending on your riding style and boot’s footprint, but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
154: 9-10
158: 9.5-10.5
162: 10-11
166: 11-12

For weight I would stay close to Amplid’s recommendations as it’s pretty fair. Of course you can go down a size to better match your boot size for more control/easier turning or up if you like speed and want more stability as it’s all personal preference. The only thing I don’t like is sizing up 4cm per board makes it hard to find the perfect size.


The Amplid Singular has a few mm of taper and is somewhat directional, but it doesn’t feel that way. It feels very centered and a lot less directional on snow than it looks.

Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

Amplid Singular -Camber

The Amplid Singular has camber from pretty much the tail to just a little before the nose starts. I would call this mostly camber and it feels pretty locked in/technical compared to many boards with early rise. That’s not a bad thing but it makes this ride more for hard charging intermediates willing to take some lumps, advanced and expert riders that can skid turns with full camber.

Flex Personality

You have a medium-stiff flex that is a little more on the medium side. The Amplid Singular took some work to butter, but it’s doable for most average riders. It pops pretty easily on an ollie.

Uneven Terrain

I haven’t experienced this kind of dampness for this flex before trying the Amplid Singular. It really is amazing in everything from hard to soft, uneven snow. Often times I ignore talking about tech because it’s more about how it rides, but this Antiphase tech deserves mention as it’s far from being smoke-and-mirror bullshit.

Edge Hold

The Amplid Singular doesn’t have any real disruption happening, but the edges stay so quiet that they grab, as well as some boards with a mellow disruption. The Singular grips really well when conditions get a little uneven.

Speed/Base Glide

It’s pretty good when well waxed and good for the price, but I’ve been on a faster bases.

Turning Experience/Carving

Amplid Singular - Turning and Carving

The Amplid Singular 158 turned medium, bordering on medium/fast, with my size 9 US boots. If I were a 10, an ideal size for this board, his would be medium/fast for sure. When I got this on edge, it had a pretty balanced turning experience that could make all kinds of turns. The spring out of the turn was solid and a joy to carve. I think that is one of the Singular’s strong points. You can use front foot weight, center weight, and back foot weight for your turns.


So, this is one place where I was disappointed in its performance. Having 5×2 inserts on the front foot and 6×2 on the back made it hard for me to utilize the 2.125” setback on board with a 22.5” stance width. I would have rather preferred having 6×2 on the front foot, and then I would have been able to get more back with a 21.5” stance width. In comparison to many all mtn boards I tested this season it didn’t have that easy directional float that comes close to mimicking a freeride board when set all the way back like some of my favorite rides. This is probably the only thing holding this ride back from being an excellent one-board quiver. That being said, if you like camber boards like this in powder, this will be fine.


The Amplid Singular can ride switch much better than it looks, and I found myself riding switch a lot with this. I had a decent time making old man turns in the pipe, too. You could hit some big kicker with this, but I wouldn’t choose it for jibbing.

Final Thoughts

Other than powder, I had a pretty fun time riding the Singular. Its uneven snow performance/dampness is unparalleled in the industry, and if you have another board for deep powder, this could definitely work.
