It'll be fine for skinning. As long as it's the rockered Legacy, it should be adequate enough for splitting. Ideally, you might want a slightly larger board, but it's not like it's not going to shred powder because it's a 159.

It is the 2011 Legacy so it's rocker. Thanks a bunch for the input guys, truly appreciated! That NS cam-rock is the reason I shred the 158 proto, love it!

You guys know anyone who's tried the K2 Panoramic? The Voile team-up looks sound and it's rockered and quite a bit cheaper than the NS boards but with only a 2 yr warranty. I've gotten good performance from many K2 products, so just wondering if anyone knows anything about the actual experience/functionality...

I've been hoping to get a demo of that board. $900 for a full kit! That is a screaming price. K2 has stepped up their game the past few years. Probably a much better ride than a Voile, a step down from Venture or Neversummer in terms of durability and dampness. Not sure on performance, as they can really knock that one out of the park or miss completely...

Blah I came super close to getting to demo one. At a split fest I went to a couple months ago a guy had the K2 to demo, but he ended up leaving early so of course my day wasn't meant to be on it. From looking at it in person it was a sweet setup. They had an interesting way of attaching the skins though. Also I believe it was flat rocker between the feet I can't remember though.

Default And another splitboard newbie...

Hi, I am looking for a splitboard too, but unfortunately live in Finland, where they are mostly an unknown treasure, something that must be ordered from abroad it seems, and therefore i haven't gotten to really try any. So, can anyone help me?

I am 5''3 tall (162cm) and weight about 137 lbs (62kg), my old slopeboards are stiff 147cm long from time before cambre and rockers etc... I've had a K2 Saturn from 2001 (?) and after that a Rossignol Diva from 2006/7 (which i didn't first want to buy cause the girls boards seemed all too flexy), which both I've been very comfortable with both on and off the slopes. Now I want to be able to keep up with my skier friends outside the lift area to get the better snow, and splitboard sounds like the perfect solution.

I was looking at the Voile Mojo RX /Light Rail -package to make it easy, as this is my first split board, and to be honest, living in a city in a flat area, i only get about 15 days of skiing per a season, so I wouldn't want to spend a fortune on the equipment.

Just the length is my problem: 153 cm sounds kind of a sissy, as I've heard you can go longer with a splitboard, and there's just 6cm difference to my old one. Then 161 cm sounds kinda long with the board being my height. But as i like it long and stiff (hehe.. no pun intended.. ) does it sound like i could still do it? Or should I check on the other makes, to find some length there in between?

The general rule of thumb is to get a split that is 6cm longer than your resort/everyday deck. So if 147 is what you are normally riding, the 153 should be fine. I think jumping to a 161 is going to be a bit much for you and probably not fun. You still want your split deck to be responsive. You make too big of a jump and it's just going to be a pig.

Have you ever looked at the Prior splitboards?

I got the Kyhber 156 last season an it's awesome in the powder... I even took it in resort a couple of days to test it out on different terrain - it's damn fast on groomed runs!
