Default Got my Splitboard! 200$

200$ off of Craigs list it's a DIY Neiva Escape(small SLC board company) split at the Neiva factory\shop in midvale. The board and Voile kit look bran new , seller told me the whole thing only had 3 days of touring on it and based on wear that looks about right.


Gonna upgrade to Spark R&D Edisons and K-Clips this summer but it's more than capable of anything I can throw at it in the last month and a half were in Utah before moving back to Minnesota for the Spring\Summer.

So stoked Snowvols and I are heading out to go touring Saturday in Big Cottonwood.


EDIT:....Also a big thanks to Snowvols for helping me talk this guy down from 375$

wow, sounds like you got a great deal on that! I'm taking my avy 1 the first week of march and then hope to get out for an intro to touring by season's end.

Hopefully I can find a split for around that price...guess I should start shopping craigslist.

Yep KSL and ebay too, also for a 150$ Brighton will do a professional job of splitting your old board and installing all hardware.

Hell yeah! Nice find man!

If my old cambered NS Heritage was just a hair bigger I'd split it.

I'm keeping an this:

Voile Mojo-RX Light Rail Splitboard Package by Voile: Amazon.com: Sports & Outdoors

166 is just too damn big. I'd much rather have the 161 for the trees here in CO. That 166 would be awesome for slaying big open bowls, but we don't get the opportunity to do that very often in the CO BC.

I have about $300 in Amazon gift cards and another $150 or so in Visa gift cards, so that gets me down to around $400. It's almost worth pulling the trigger on that 166, but that's a big board to have to throw around in the trees.

Nice this is what I originally wanted but couldn't afford this winter after buying my avy gear

Panoramic Snowboard - Men's _158 by K2: Amazon.com: Sports & Outdoors

Than add some Spark R&D bindings which everyone is raving about

You can't beat that deal you found. If I had the chance I'd jump all over that too and use my gift cards on something else.

So... can I interest you in some Amazon gift cards?

Hmmm... that's interesting. I just went and checked my stash of Amazon gift cards and I don't have $300. I have $1230!

166 is really big though...

Fuck me, if you got that much to spend on Amazon...

http://www.amazon.com/Jones-Solution...495965&sr=8-37

You want at least a little bigger than a 161 that you use inbounds. Consider that you're carrying more gear, hence more weight. Seems about perfect for you right there...

Yah, I saw that Jones but all the quality issues I've been hearing is kind of scaring me off.

K2 and Rome splits are on sale at evo right now for the budget conscious still looking for a new factory ride.

some of those amazon links are to evo i think...

personally i'd wait another year at least on Jones... MT boys on sb.com have had complaints about durability even on boards that have made it thru QC successfully... carbon model comes out next year...

if i was going to buy a this-years-Jones model i'd want 50% off of msrp - they dropped the ball like a motherfucker this year.

hikeswithdogs: congrats man! smokin deal... if anyone ever complains about the cost of BC riding now we can show them this thread get after it and stay safe out there!
