burton is mojo is ...
but voile have more IQ what is a splitboard - what need a splitboard...
a split must be light - and stiffy for the up hill .... and a good flex in the nose .... we ride the Bc not a race track ....a simpel system vor the interfaces .
in the past burton must lorn how had the better interface ....
and in the next comes the light and stiffy lesion...
cap ore sandwitch - cap is lighter sandwitch is stiffy - redneks think so .
you can build light in cap and in sandwitch 2 .... stiffy is not a question of cap ore sandwitch .... built a board with out sidewalls, in hardwood .... this is hard and lighter .... build it in cap and it is waterresident.... build it in abs sidewalls - is a littel side impackt absorber NOT A AIRBAG...
THE best way is RIDE IT and TEST It - no person can say you must by this one XXXX

I would agree that the Burton is not classified as a "stiff" board. Its got a great all-around flex but its not stiff like the mountain gun. I would also agree that the Burton is a really great all-around splitboard.
While I haven't ridden the mojo yet, based on the shape and flex, I believe it will be very similar to the burton. I'll let you know for sure if we ever get some snow.
i guess i should clarify that my s series is really stiff relative to my voile freeride. the freeride is a wet noodle compared to the burton, i also dont weigh very much, so for you 170+ lb guys it is probably a lot less stiff.
"take it easy, if its easy take it twice..."
I have owned the Voile 173 Freeride, 161 Mtn Gun(2005/06 stiff), 171 Mtn Gun(2006/07 mid stiff) and now the 166 Mojo. I Have only been out on it for 3 days but so far the Mojo is the best board, split or not, that I have ridden yet.
I have an old 168 Burton Supermodel and I would choose the Mojo even on the groomers.
