T. Rice factory split?

(thought I posted this the other day but guess I forgot to hit publish)
Not sure if this is a Lib joke or not, but spotted this pic over at Southofthenorth. The lack of inserts makes me think it’s a joke, though maybe that’s a way (albeit an odd way depending on price) of circumventing the Voile patent fee?

Real or hoax?

UPDATE: Only place online I’ve seen the 2010 (non-Voile predrilled) split is “>US Outdoor Store. Next year’s look like they are drilled AND they’ve been showing them with Karakorum bindings…

  1. the pic is real, the split was at SIA and is in the 10-11 lib catalogue – called the “voila”

    1. Ha, love the name (only cuz I always thought that’s how you pronounced Voile). Any idea the $?

  2. i wanna say 850 but id be lying if i said i was sure… the lack of inserts is apparently to allow for total customization based on personal preference, but given the name the voile patent issue is clearly a factor.

    1. 850 and i still have to drill my own holes? ouch. i like the 70s rock t-shirt sparkles tho.

  3. best photo mod … ever

  4. Couldn’t have done it w/o your original pic so you get like 75% of the credit for the modded pic

  5. “detatchable monoski”
