We’re sure we all agree that if there is a rider in this planet who perfectly defines big mountain riding, it has to be the legendary Xavier de le Rue. We expected the new XV Split by Rossignol to reflect Xav’s aggressive riding style: A faster, more solid splitboard, very stable at high speed and on the hardest, gnarliest snow conditions you will find out there, thanks to its very stiff flex and torsion, and the extra grip which comes with Serrated Edges ™ technology. We dare to say that it’s one of the fastest boards we’ve tested through all these years. A splitboard, which demands speed and aggressiveness in equal parts to make the most out of it. With a directional shape, traditional camber and a generous rocker to keep you afloat, we recommend it to advanced riders with a marked aggressive style. If you enjoy riding exposed terrain and you like to charge on all types of snow, this is your splitboard.
