Up for sale is a Nitro Retro 1991 Limited Edition Swallowtail cut down the middle.
Split down the middle, but the Voile DIY Kit was not installed. The base and deck are in excellent condition.
The dimension are: [*] 171CM [*] 28 mm width at the Shovel [*] 23.5mm width at the waist (almost near the rear foot, where the arch begins) [*] 25 mm at the tail
The shovel measure 50 cm has and early rise tip height of 7cm. Slight camber underneath the front foot and contiues towards the tail. Turns like a short board!
While this is foam-core board, this swallowtail is a solid board. I railed on this swally with my alpine hard boots! The old Elfgin hard boot bindings were mounted with heli-coils. The helicoils were mounted from the top of the deck and tap through an metal plate just below the topsheet. In other words, I seriously doubt you will pull out the bindings on a powder day!
The benefit for a splitboard is that you drill through the deck and not the base, use heli-coils or quiver killers to install the Voile DIY Interface kit. Phantoms and Dynafits would work too!
