Up for sale is a Nitro Retro 1991 Limited Edition Swallowtail cut down the middle.

Image

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!

I have a Prior Fissile for a powder splitboard, so this project has been laying around for a while.

I will hold a silent auction. PM me with a your bid, Auction starting price is $75.00 dollars. The Auction end on midnight Thanksgiving 2013

I have Voile DIY Interface Kit(s), Quiver-Killers inserts and Voile Skins (sold seperately) up for sale as well.

Buyer pays via PayPal only plus actual shipping cost. Shipping to CONUS only.

Note the white lines are marked on clear tape and not on the board itself. These lines are use to center the Voile DIY touring hardware.

It's all finished , needs a base grind but here's the finished product

Softboot mode

Hardboot mode

Very narrow board so it will be interesting to see if the toe hang causes issues.

Cheers
