Hi everybody! Im new in the splitboard world.
I wanna buy a Voile Mojo.
Im 172 cm tall (5.64f) and 74 kg (165p) weight.
In the slopes I use a 154 custom burton.
What suppose to be better for me. a 154 or a 161 voile mojo?

Javier,
Where do you live? What are the mountains like there? What is the snow like? What is your riding style.
Off hand I'd say go 161, but if your going low angle with deep snow I'd say go bigger, if your riding ice, tight trees, or freestyle than shorter might be better.

From what I hear, the divide is a good board, but very expensive. Also, I don't think it comes ready to go out of the box. You still have to buy an interface kit and skins (and crampons if you want them) making it even more expensive.

The Voile comes with everything right out of the box (minus crampons) ready to go.

as you can see in my av i ride a venture divide, as does my buddy lucas. mine's the longer of the two...180 medium, his is a 162 i think. at any rate, we both really love our divides, i'd highly recomend one to anybody interested.
