TheCorniceStore: you said earlier that these were Heritage boards, not SLs?

I can say this about the Heritage split:
1. It's very very solid and awesome quality. This is not a toy!
2. No compromise detected in performance when comparing with a solid (even a NS solid)
3. Less aggressive than the Raptor solid that Vince sent me to demo - but still amazing ride, for sure
4. Holds great edge, easy to handle when things get tight, damp: really a joy to ride!

It's so nice I don't want to ride my K2 TD solid. (I would ride the solid as my resort and rock board, but mostly to 'save' the NS). Really, I am thinking I need another NS solid so that I still enjoy the resort rides and also save my split for when I actually need it.

Cheers
Ivo

Gday Ivo,

Yep its a Heritage split chassis under a shiny new SL topsheet , I was trying to show what a SL split with carbounim topsheet looks like in real life.

I am soooooo itching to test it out!!

Totally understand! Hoping you get to - asap. No idea what your current ride is, but I venture to say expect a significant and positive difference :D

Cheers
Ivo

Took the 161 out for her maiden voyage. I was originally gonna take her to the resort to dial in the bindings...But I just cant break such a nice board in at the resort. The dimpled top sheet is cool kinda like a reverse golf ball material that seems to shed snow very well. Skinning was much better with the factory split over my DIY board. I also like that the touring bracket is placed more forward than other factory splits Ive ridden. When lifting the skiis, the tips rise out of the snow immediatly.

The changeover action is very smooth and the fit is titties :thumpsup: Stoked to have P-tex sidewalls and an inner edge. The ride down was fun corn and the SL performed beautifully. REally easy to turn and edges well (fast board noticibly stiffer than my DIY revolver r. I really want to get this board in some powder! :headbang:

Now, I want one even more especially with your comments (I'd like a stiffer board too). I bet the tips come up because NS design team knows the exact balance of the board. That is good to know. Did you find the 161cm to be a great length? That is what I was considering, I am 5'9" and 195 lbs, how about you? Have you ever ridden the Summit Split?
