Here's a sneak preview of the new Prior 05/06 catalog. The website should be updated in a week or so with the new models. There are new topsheet designs as well as some new lengths. I suspect the new Kyber 170 might do well. Also, all splitboards come standard with the quad glass upgrade.

I just ordered a Prior 176 split with the new white topo topsheet design.

Looking forward to 05/06 season!

STOKED! :mrgreen:

Sweet, they have some small ones! 149 in the BC and 150 in the Khyber.

Now my wife has no excuses ;-) Just have to find a babysitter.

At the demo day during splitfest, Dean from Prior had an early proto of the solid ATV 167. The first question asked was "will there be a split version". Dean said probably not. Apparently they did a run of split 4wd 174s for Fin over at Bomberonline, and they felt like they lost money on the limited production. It seems that they have to put together a new template for insert packs for the ~45*+ angles that hardbooters like to run.

Dean did say that they could do just about anything on a custom/one-off basis... for a price.

Nice pickup there Ripz... Glad to see you finally pulled the trigger. I expect to see some good photos and more helmet-cam action from the Alps this winter...

I'm trying to find the right board now to split for my wife so I can drag her out with me. The budget doesn't quite allow to buy a complete new split for her just yet... Maybe I'll split something for myself and let her ride my 172St split.. who knows..

Anyway, glad to see the quad-glass is stabdard for all the splits now. I think it's a must. I can only imagine how much better my 172st would have been in quad... Alas, I'll just have to budget for a new board next season to find out.. :)

yeah, i'm pretty stoked! :D when i saw the new boards i had to jump on it. i had been balking largely on the fact that i don't like any of their topsheet designs. i had a hard time justifying that price for a board i don't even like to look at. but then i saw the new "topo" design. pefect.

now the long wait.....

I know of at least one person who has ordered one as a split... though he had the waist widened just a hair... i believe to 24cm.

ahhh... so that's why their site was down for maintenance the other day... re-doing the site i see :)

is the consensus that khyber split is a better performing board than the backcountry split? :?:

will there be a big technological improvement in 06 over the 05 splits? or just better looking topsheets? :?:
