Forums Splitboards What choose – Voile Mountain Gun 161 or 171 ? Reply To: What choose – Voile Mountain Gun 161 or 171 ?

If you ride a lot of deep snow in open terrain, get a longer freeride series split. Softer flex works better there. It does get easier to build a quiver after you purchase your second board, I’m at seven boards right now and still looking!
