Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

From gut-wrenching Greenland steeps to treacherous Alaskan spines, Xavier de le Rue rips the most intimidating and remote lines on the planet. The Rossignol XV Magtek Splitboard Kit is his vehicle for pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the backcountry. This splitboard kit includes everything you need, aside from bindings, to ascend and rip the lines of your dreams. 

Tailored to Xavier de le Rue's aggressive riding style, the XV Magtek Splitboard features a directional shape with 10-millimeters of taper and a small tail cut-out for powerful response and ample float when you're attacking big-mountain lines. This big-mountain specialist has a Reverse Super Directional Flex, meaning it's extremely stiff under the front binding with a stiff mid-section that mellows out as you work towards the tail. This flex pattern provides confident control when falling simply isn't an option, allowing you to negotiate steeps and high-speeds without chatter.

Designed with Rossignol's AmpTek All-Mountain profile, you'll find camber underfoot with rocker in the tip and tail. When you break it down, the board is 40% camber and 60% rocker (30% rocker at each tip) for effortless float at high speeds with aggressive edge hold underfoot, especially when you factor in the board's claw-like Magne-Traction 7M edges. New for this year, Rossignol added their Roller Base tech to the tip and tail. This technology raises the base edge of the tip and tail by one millimeter. This subtle 3D shaping directs snow around the board's tips for silky-smooth powder turns without plowing.

Inside this backcountry charger, you'll find a THC2 CBF2 core that's crafted with split-specific Dual Torsion Box construction. This three-part construction places ABS through the center for enhanced durability when you're clanking 'em together in touring mode. The core itself is composed of vertically laminated wood, basalt, and Aramid for an extremely damp, ultra-stable feel. 

All necessary equipment for mounting traditional or split-specific bindings is included. This Split Kit features the following: Voile universal splitboard interface, Voile splitboard crampons, and Voile splitboard climbing skins.

  • Tapered directional shape (10-millimeters of taper)
  • Reverse Super Directional flex
  • Amptek All-Mountain profile (camber underfoot, rockered nose and tail)
  • Roller Base Tips (1mm raised edges along tip and tail)
  • THC2 CBF2 core (split-specific Triple Hybrid Core)
  • Dual Torsion Box (three-part construction)
  • CBF2 (basalt fiber along edges)
  • Magne-Traction 7M edges
  • Sintered 7500 base
  • Included with kit: Voile universal split interface, skins, crampons

XV sig board rips!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This board is great. Deep powder, chunder, ice, bobsled runs, and varying conditions were no problem charging hard and straight-lining. Limitless speed and stability. I am 5'7" 140 lbs, I went with the 159 and it is working out great. I feel as though I could have gone up to the 162. The magtek is very grippy when on hard pack surfaces. There are pros and cons to this. When in powder/soft snow you dont feel the magtek at all. However, when you hit a patch of ice or crust and feel the serrated edge bite into the snow it is some awesome technology to help keep you on your feet. This board wants to be ridden edge to edge, it wants to go fast and straight. I have no complaints, this board feels like a solid and is very confidence inspiring. I have this board set up with the Karakoram split 30 system and its working out alright. Oh yeah... did I mention the topsheet for this board is out of sight!!!! Great work Rossi!

XV sig board rips!

How do you rate the XV compared to the Jones Solution? Do the inner edges have magne-traction on the XV like the Solution has?
I LOVE the way that the Solution skates and even skis pretty darn good, which is often a much better option to get some speed on your halves and rock it instead of stopping to re-attach, and then shortly after, having to un-attach. Of course, you should never get radical doing this, but I've seen a number of guys actually skiing their halves on youtube (and pretty well!). That could obviously be hard on your knees if you bail, so it's more like just for traversing slight inclines, not downhilling it at high speed, of course. However, how do you like the way this XV skins and skates? One down side is that you need to buy K clips to replace the chinese clips that I always hated. Get 3 while you are at it, and get the middle one done at a shop unless you are handy and have a drill press. There can be no slop in your drilling job. Must be totally plumb and exact. Best to have a set of bits and start with the smallest one, and patiently change to the next size up until it's the the right size. If it's too tight, it will warp your deck a bit, so watch for that. Make sure to leave room with the location of your drilled holes to pull the K-clips tight enough, though, as they can't be too loose either. Another thing I always hated is those whale shaped plastic tail and tip hooks that always come apart. I'm surprised nobody has come up with something that doesn't come apart constantly, even though that is a minor gripe.

ANYWAY-- What's the verdict? Jones or XV? I would not be surprised if you like the XV better than the Solution. Is it more stable at high speed? I'll bet the new Karakoram primes change the story on both of them considerably because of the new plate system. Xavier is the man, so I would be surprised if his deck was not the bomb also.

I had forgotten about Plum bindings until just now, and see that they are available for a little less than the Karakoram bindings.

However, the new Karakoram Prime system is VERY cool as well. It might even be easier to use your pole baskets to lock in and out and lift and lower your risers with the new Prime system. Man! all this new technology is coming out so fast, it's hard to know what to buy, and what will be immediately outdated next year! I'm committed to buying a Jones Carbon Solution 164 already, being 500 grams lighter than last year's solution. I already have 2 sets of gecko skins for the solution 164. I only want to use the gecko skins customized how I have them. Glue skins are now a pain. (well, they always were!) decisions, decisions!

that is the question.

Which one is lighter, hard wear and all? The highback looks better and stiffer on the Plum's, and the toe strap looks nice, although I do like the Karakoram air strap for weighing nothing.

The Plum's look higher quality all the way around, with pretty much all metal construction. The Plum attachment system is cool how it pulls the halves together, and those hooks look really cool, although I wonder what they weigh compared to K clips, which I do like, especially with 3 of them. I'd probably look into getting a 3rd Plum clip, which I hope is better than the K clips. K clips can bend a bit, although if you clean your edges, that should not be a problem.
