Hidden amongst the Skis... The TRice Split
 
Mervin North America - Lib Tech, Narrow Ass Snowboards, Voila

$769 is a pretty damn good price too. Would have thought Mervin would try to monetize the T.rice brand.

last year they put it out without inserts... from the looks of that pic there's no inserts in that one either... it better not be $800 plus - cuz no one's gonna buy it anyways if it doesn't have any inserts...

if it does have inserts then that's great - if it doesnt then Lib are complete retards and should just not make splits if they aren't going to fucking drill them.

Naw man, can't you see it's the next big thing?

First, the banana!
Next, the monoski!
THEN, ACTUAL SKIS!

It's a flawless business strategy really.

Have to agree. It looks like it has just been split.

Word on the street was these were going to come with hardware this year if there was enough if there was enough interest in the split last year. From the looks of it, that's last years model now that I think of it. Evo had one in stock at their store all last season that just collected dust at that price. I almost picked it up during their late season blow out sale for right around $400, but didn't pull the trigger. At close to $800 full price without ANY hardware, I'd say overpriced.

If you are going to pay that much it's stupid that you have to drill it yourself. I'd rather make a DIY than a blank I have to fuck with like that. So the price seems fair to me, if a little overinflated for a Lib. Their boards always seem to be a little less expensive to me. $900 would seem fair for what they are offering.

K Clips are niiiiiice...

^^I thought this year's was fully drilled? At least the advertisement I saw said something to that effect.
