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. http://www.priorsnowboards.com/winter0506/ I just ordered a Prior 176 split with the new white topo topsheet design. Looking forward to 05/06 season! STOKED!

Now my wife has no excuses 😉 Just have to find a babysitter.

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.

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.. 🙂 Greg - NoKnees August 29, 2005 at 6:42 pm #582534 Ripzalot 8 Posts NoKnees wrote: Nice pickup there Ripz… Glad to see you finally pulled the trigger.

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.
