This is the new graphic for the 2011-2012 Voile Mojo RX 166. Will the board be the same of this year?

Another topo graphic. How original. I got a box from them the other day with the transfer sheet scrap from a 171 used as packing material. Way to be green! Hehehe

Same here, now there is a five foot long (albeit reversed) pano of the Wasatch hanging on the wall in our Kitchen.

Pedro aren't you the one who spams Venture all over the place. Now those are ugly as hell topsheets and everybody knows a black topsheet is a complete no,no. Look at the Khyber design and backcountry design for the prior splitboards. UGLY.... as..... hell. Honestly I have yet to see any company put out a decent topsheet design. Put down the crack pipe man and come back to reality.

Peitro, I asked the same question and I am pretty sure the answer is yes. I really enjoy my Mojo Rx but I'm hoping they provide some more options soon. Plus I'm really interested to see how the Mojo rides firm snow, I've been lucky to have ridden nothing but pow so far this season (which it kills) but I think if the Mojo lacks anywhere in terms of it's design it will be on hardpack. We'll see soon, tis the season and I'll let you know.

Except you can pick from a bunch of topsheets, many of which are pretty sweet ;]

True, it's amazing how it's the little details that make all the difference.

I don't know i'm pretty over NS grpahics. Every board they have ever made has that fucking phoenix/eagle thing or a picture of a mountain. which was cool for the first ten years but maybe not so much now. Venture boards are boring. Prior has 1 or 2 okay designs out of the 6-8 that they offer. voile's graphics have always sucked, although i like the rasta 161rx i'm on now and i think the leafy 166 is kind of cool. next years boards aren't hideous i don't think they are great, but i wouldn't say hideous. maybe i just like that they have the wasatch on them. grey is a good neutral color and the "topo" is barely there. I guess rughty would like a board with a graphic of someone bulldozing the amazon and spraying a can of freon out the window of a hummer. maybe that company could also line the box with spotted owls for packaging. fuck maybe i'll start this company it sounds like a party.

I don't like the Voile topsheets much, but those NS pictured are hideous.
Yes, I wish there were more truly custom options. Especially for boards that are made to order where there are few reasons outside of copyright that would prevent one from getting the graphic of their choice.

Personally, when it comes down to the reality of it I just want to ride my board not gawk at it. I want to stare at pretty snowboard shaped art I can print topsheets shapes on adhesive vinyl at work and hang them on my wall.
