Looks like a long taper, maybe long scr shape from Voile.

Anybody got beta?

Methinks Mojo + scales = Revelator.
I can't find the Mojo specs but what I do remember checks out: ≈ 8—9.5 m sidecut, 3 mm setback, early rise rocker, 2-3 cm taper

Here are the specs from 2009 for the Mojo.

I loved my Mojo! It changed my riding and I even started riding it inbounds as it was my first really big stiff board.

Didn't realize what the Revealtor's deal was. Very interesting.

Capped all the way around, lighter than I thought it would be.

Here're the specs I had in mind: from the 2012 Mojo. . .
Image

Comparing the largest sizes available 169 Revelator (left) to 171 Mojo (right); (thanks to Snurfer's handy link). . .

Length (cm) ***169 *** 171
Effective Edge ***112.7 *** 122.5
Sidecut (meter) ***9.4 *** 9
Waist width ***26.5 *** 26
Nose Width*** 30.8 *** 131.1 (huh? I think it's a typo for 31)
Tail Width ***29.4 *** 29
Camber*** camber/early rise *** camber/early rise
Nose Length*** 32.1 *** 32 (rocker?)
Tail Length ***29 *** 16.5
Stance *** -3 *** -3
Stance Width *** 26 *** 25
*grubles* I can't get tabs to work!

Pretty darn close to the same board with scales. . . close enough for jazz anyway.

Is "capped" that pinched, thinner part surrounding the core but not yet at the edge?

I've been on the 162 and 165. No idea if they are production models.
Similar feel to the mojo. More power with a nice kick coming out of turns.
No fish scales on the ones I tried.
Capped = lighter board.
Like the 165 better for float.
Much nicer boards than the Artesans.

112.7 cm is a very short effective edge for a 169. This indicates a nice amount of reverse sidecut in the tip and tail, which should allow for smooth riding through variable conditions (even the slightest wind crust on pow can be disturbing to many boards at 50 MPH). Short effective edge also brings more pressure under foot, and allows for great float and control of the board from the center, rather than hooky feel of most boards. Decent amount of taper as well. Could be a cool board, sorry about the cap though, lighter, but usually cap boards have damping and durability problems...

And it should pivot easily too. Upon seeing the long tapered shovel/tail shape I'd hoped they'd paired it with a long scr and rocker profile to match... I'd hoped Voile had busted out and gone revolutionary. But alas, the sub 10m rule stands. For low angle scale-skin laps on powder days this will be a functional shape, though. Nice to see 26" stances on the bigger decks.

I wonder why Voile went back to cap. Did they have problems with their sidewall boards? Lower production costs (they are coming it at a good pricepoint)? In my opinion, the durability costs don't justify the weight benefits.
