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.

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.
