Here's what other sites are saying:

With phenomenal float and maneuverability, the updated Prior Khyber XTC Carbon splitboard features lightweight carbon construction for board strength that won't weigh you down. While the Kyber is stellar in chutes, pillow lines and trees, it also handles surprisingly well on crud, hardpack and ice. Hybrid rocker design features a rockered tip and tail combined with a subtle camber between the feet; tip and tail are reinforced so you'll have the confidence to go big. Hybrid rocker lets you take the board into deep powder without worrying about the tip diving down; subtle camber provides an effective edge length for quick turns. Voile hardware makes the transition from touring to riding easy: simply put the board together, move binding plates from touring to downhill configuration, secure pin and go! Tip-to-tail wood core: durable, vertically laminated aspen core with maple hardwood stringers provides forgiving flex for edge control and solid turns. Core is wrapped with XTC carbon fiber for lightweight strength and even flex; XTC carbon reduces the average weight by 600g over traditional fiberglass construction. Traditional sandwich construction directs energy to the edges and keeps power loss to a minimum; rubber foil damps vibrations. Rugged, lightweight Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) sidewalls offer low resistance and can take a beating; 22deg bevel on outer edges and 0deg bevel on inside edges. UHMW sintered graphite base is incredibly fast and hard; plus, it retains wax well and maintains a tough finish. Highly durable steel edges deliver biting turns. Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Light Rail bindings and Voile Universal Splitboard hardware kit for Burton sold separately. Skins available separately. Handcrafted in Whistler, BC, Canada. .
