Hi, Are from Norway here, new on the forum and just got a hold of the Lib-Tech Voila splitboard without inserts.

I'm hoping that someone can give me some pointers on the positioning of the binding on this board. Normally I would have some setback, but I'm not sure if this is a good match to the bananashape and magnetraction. I'm aiming for something like 18 degrees in front and +5 back although I'm riding -5 on the normal T.Rice in the slopes/backcountry.

Appreciate all feedback and tips!

Depends on how deep and light your pow is, rockered boards in general are happy a little more cenetred. I ride my dark series (resort board) at 5/8" back and my mullet (split) at 1.5" back.
I'd say 1" to 1.5" is probably good, but I haven't ridden the t rice

damn dude, two t-rices, i'm jealous! i'm guessing you have ridden the non-split t-rice, and so your preferred stance on that setup should be a good strarting point for the stance on your voila. as far as setback i have gotten really used to riding all of my boards except my 168 original sin swallowtail dead center which isn't the best for float, but is great for switch landings and doing propellers and wheelies in pow which is a blast! that doesn't really help out too much with you predicament though, just try riding set-back for a while, then centered on your solid deck and see what works best for your riding style and the deck. also be careful when clamping the two board halves together when drilling the deck so they line up correctly as it seems that the c2 has a tendency to cause the board halves to shift funny when they are clamped together.
hope that mess was helpful!
good luck with the build, put some pics up of the process i would be stoked to see how it goes.
and hit me up if you need any other tips.

Hi, how was the mounting of the voile setup? did you find any disadvantage because of about 30 inserts in the base when riding? can get a cheap lib tech splitboard 2011 ... but i am a bit nervous if the mounting is a bit a "%&ç*" without any inserts ... never did this before ... can you send me some pictures of your ready libtech splitboard?
Thanks,

Hi Snowdrift, the mounting was ok, took a while to do it properly, but turned out pretty tight.

The feel of the board is way better than the Burton S-series I tried last year, and close to my other T.Rice. It's a bit longer, and I can feel that, but all in all I'm very satisfied whit how it performs.

I don't remember the exact stance now (summer and all), but it's not too different from what I normally ride. (a little bit duck if I remember correctly and some setback.)

Here's a video where you can see it briefly:
