I've been riding a solid Khyber for a few years and found it to be a great board, so I decided to upgrade from a older Prior Backcountry to a Khyber split. After Fedex dropped it off this morning, I spent the afternoon trimming skins, bolting on dual-height risers and Spark LT toe pieces, and then mounted the pucks and dialed-in my Spark Blazes. Now I'm ready for snow!

I considered the carbon, but decided on fiberglass for two reasons: I like the dampness of glass vs. the snap and pop of carbon, especially in the hardback and crud I seem to run into, and I also had a hard time justifying spending another $200 on the board! I definitely think there's a weight savings on the Khyber, and don't think it's just the LTs. Even though the specs say it's heavier than the current Backcountry, I think it's lighter than the old one. Maybe it's due to a difference between the old construction and six years of technology, but I'm happy with the new board no matter what.

Wow, sick set up man, I especially like the Spark LT pin system. I bought a Burton Freebird this year with voile hardware & skins as well as Spark Ignition 2 bindings, it’s no Prior but it splits apart and gets me up the hill. Good luck and have a sweet season...
