Hello splitters, i am looking to buy my first splitboard as a christmas present for myself. (I am norwegian, so any glitches in my written english should be overlooked, or made fun of. Whatever floats your boat)

I mainly plan to use the board for powder and backcountry trips, but there might be some trips in the slopes as well.

I have read a lot about the boards, in here and on the sites of the manufacturers. But a comparison between the two would be great.
Or if you have other recommendations that you think will fit better, they are much appreciated.

I am 190cm and about 90kg, been riding solid boards for about 15 years.

På forhånd, takk.

If you ever want to ride or land switch, go for the Trice

Also if you ever ride across variable or icy conditions, go for the Trice (magnetraction)

Trice is also super light weight

:headbang:

The spearhead is a big mountain board...it's meant for going fast in big alpine terrain and isn't really the ideal board for touring or tree riding. I don't really know what kind of terrain you ride in norway, but there is probably a better prior option out there for you.

I've never had any experience on the Rice board, so I can't help you there.

I don't know much about the Prior but the T.Rice is a great all-around board. It's slightly wider than the Gnu Billy Goat but otherwise very comparable. The Gnu is also about $100 cheaper.
