this is a splitboard it is cut in half... It requires a little more attention to set up than a solid.
i have a couple guesses
make sure all your hardware is tight. Clamp one side of the board and rock the other back and forth, how much does it move? my opinion of the k clips is that they pull the board together really well, but are not as torsionally ridged as tight Chinese hooks, i tighten mine down so they dont move. Somebody did a pretty good test of the two on splitboard.com a while ago.
what forward lean do you have on your sparks, ( 0 ) on a spark is -5 degrees, for touring, many regular bindings ( 0 ) is positive. Adjust accordingly.
whats your heel and toe overhang look like, if you put the voile pucks on a certain way you can have too much heel overhang.
Have you toured through a lot of shit like rocks and dirt and dulled your edges? I did and it was noticeable effect on firm snow inbounds.
check the tune, (edge bevel, base flatness) on the split as well. Some jones boards had quality issues in the past, building a split is a little trickier than building a solid.
