Just wanted to hear the stoke on the new rossignol 167 XV split board.....


I have about 15 days so far and I must say WOW! board is super SUPER fast, floats like crazy, plains the shovel nose out no matter what the speed and the shape is awesome. Turns on a dime or smears, whatever you like. My problem is I'm 159 pounds and that board does not flex under my lite weight, if it where a 162 I would love it so much more!!!!
my main complaint- Rossignol needs to work on the top sheet material because just like my solid Rossignol topsheets these won't last more than 50-60 days before starting to pick and crack..

If you are around 185 pounds I HIGHLY recommend this board!!!!!


Rossignol if your listening--please show Jones what is up and make your onemag tek into a split board and slay the Jones mountain twin forever. kill em by PRICE POINT.

159 and 163 length please!!!! :drool: :drool: for us light weight riders dressed with shred gear and tools UNDER 200#

They make the solid in those sizes
http://www.rossignol.com/FI/FI/xv-magte ... oards.html

And
I have seen somewhere from memory that they will be making the split 159 - 170 as well?
Someone on here should cough up the info

There is another post on here about various sizes for next season. that would be cooler than having to split one my self, granted that would make it softer..... :scratch: lightbulb!

...The source I have from Rossignol said no new lengths besides the 167. From my understanding he is pretty much the top of the food chain in Rossignol snowboarding. The problem is with that price point Rossignol will crush the market! Im surprised nobody is riding this board, IT IS SICK! albeit a little to big for me...

COME ON ROSSIGNOL- step up- onemagtek split! :rock: 159-163- softer, more playful split, not everyone BOMBS 3K vert of steeps....

The core is the issue with these boards if you want to split.
Its called THC CBF2 ?
I've split these and its like Honeycomb or Divinycell HCP.

You will need to remove some core on the cut and lay a decent side wall, prob better to get someone like Prowder or Custom Splitboards to do it.

I made myself a 168MW experience and put new inner sidewalls and edges in and the board is good, the core is swollen around the factory inserts now :(
Warranty return wasn't an option as I've cut it in half!

Stoked on the report! Russman has ridden it too and he says its super sick (and he rides nothing but Jones boards). I have yet to ride my 167xv (we have 0 snow in Tahoe). I'm only 142 lbs, but I don't recall it having a ton of camber to worry about flexing so I'm not worried. I used to ride nothing but full cambered 166's my whole life so I doubt it will be an issue (???) Besides, I carry a 20lb pack so that adds weight. Did you really have that much of a problem with the camber???

Rode mine all last season in NZ (2013) i rate it. I snapped mine but got it replaced so will ride it again this coming season. Slays in the pow and in the corn! for my size and weight its pretty perfect i just wish it was a little bit stronger hopefully this coming seasons model will fix that!

BG- don't get me wrong this board rips.... but FOR ME- for my style its still a little stiff. Now when Im donw in silverton or riding somewhere with TONS of vert this is the board, floats like a boat, turns like a racecar! I can ride it on anything. IT just at times feels pretty stiff and big for me, granted I can move it around pretty well I just think shorter and softer would be more fun for people who weight under 200# loaded, myself included. I did hear some breaking issues but have not seen them widespread.

For those you that have this year's XV. How far is the center of the ride inserts to the straight edge on both sides. Both of mine seem to be 4.5cm. Mounting the Karakorams seem to be impossible at this point unless I get a new plate.

New sizes will be 159/163. Think I will downsize to 163 when it becomes available.

Hi everyone! I also have a question about the Rossignols; are they any good for those of us with size 12+ feet? I've never been a fan of heel/toe drag...
Thanks!

I wear size 11 and toe drag hasn't been an issue unless its been extremely isothermic.
I ride a +15 -10 stance and i dont have much issue.
However if you wait until next season they are releasing the XV split in a wide i think? or it might just be the solid..

Thanks Draizuh! I actually ride a Rossignol Krypto and a Gnu Carbon Series when I'm at the resort. I was looking for something from one of those two manufacturers in splitboard so I wouldn't have as much of an adjustment to make. Whichever way I went I was planning on going with Karakoram bindings, just because of everything I've read here. Last night I pulled the trigger. I found a Lib Tech T.Rice Split in 164.5 for $600 and free shipping, then ordered some white Karakoram Split30's for $480. I'm hoping I did well...
Now that I've broken the bank, does anyone have a set of skins they're willing to sell me for a really good price?

The XV is not wide enough for me, and I wear 10.5-11 boots... (28 Mondo)

They do make a wide in the solid, but no split as of yet...
