I have never owned a split before and don't know too much about them except the basics. I found a 159 voile freeride with all the hardware and skins for a really good price. Never riding a voile freeride before I wanted to hear peoples opinions on it. I am still pretty new to the backcountry and have a lot to learn. I do just small day hikes on snowshoes but the guy who is showing me all the lines and teaching me about the BC is on skis. But just looking to hear some reviews on the voile freeride because I might just wait until next winter and get the k2 panoramic when I can afford it.
