I want to make sweet love to this deck!!!
The new NS graphics are very, very cool. I remember the huuuge backslash they had last year with the graphics they first showed. Several of the boards were redone before production, due to popular demand.

Salomon split looks kooky, a hinge in the middle of the board? One more thing for me to fiddle with at the top of the run, and it really can't be good for the ride quality... I wouldn't buy it, the board next to it looks rad though
Feels like a space race. Exciting times.
Agreed very exciting
Oh yeah, after thought... What if the hinge breaks while you are out touring? Bad situation

I'm huge fan of Salomon (running gear), but this is a waste of their energy - if they are going for the ski vibe, why not shape the center part so each ski has matching sidecut profile on both edges
Yeah, waste of money. Sorry Salomon. Imagine the time to put three different pieces together with freezing conditions. Obviously they didn't consult Splitboard.com once again. Also lack of float while skinning with those skis. Who the F is working in their R&D department?
Salomon: If you want to develop new and improved split tech, talk to people who have a clue.
