    Plum Talps splitboard has a 20m radius also. I’ve been riding Furberg for a long time now, and I’m still in love with that thing. To me it’s very weird that nobody else is building larger radius boards, or at least willing to try it out.

    I agree that a straighter sidecut skins a little bit better too, but it’s not a huge difference in most…[Read more]

  • I can probably reuse the tip clip that comes with it. Thing is, I really like the Dynafit system because you can keep the board together with skins on it. Easier if you can keep the skins on while putting the bindings on imo. You can buy just the Dynafit parts too here in Europe.

    Not sure what a wicket is, Google not helpful either… I’m…[Read more]

  • I’m cutting new skins next week, and I’m thinking of getting rid of the stock clips and making my own. So far i’ve used G3, BD and Gecko skins and the Gecko’s are my favorite. They are light and simple, and because it’s not a regular glueskin I can get away with not using a tailclip at all.

    I’ve now bought Contour Hybrid skins, because I really…[Read more]

  • I don’t think you’d need them. I have a DIY telemark setup with Dynafit toes, and if you lock it it won’t release even with a free heel. If it does, you’ve not locked it or you have ice in your tech inserts. That sometimes happens.

  • Off course. All things being equel, a lighter board is much better than a heavy one. But that’s not what I was saying. The heavier board I was talking about is shaped to have less drag in the skintrack, and it makes a huge difference. More than the weight of the board.

    Besides, more of the weightsavings can be done by selecting boots and…[Read more]

    My friend tested the Millisurf, it’s awesome. She’s considering upgrading her Milligram. These will sell out fast I think.

  • Haha, I figured that would get you guys mildly exited… Indeed I’m using a Mammut Ultralight now with carbon bottle, with an Arva Carbon light 155g and a strenghtened Arva Ultra shovel (under 350 grams). So that would be around 2kg.

    You can buy the carbon cylinder form a shop in Europe and just tell them to ship it. At your own risk, but it has…[Read more]

  • Next years models will have a few small tweaks again. I still ride the rockered model, although I’ve tested the newer cambered ones every season so far.

    For me the rockered is more allround as it turns a little easier so I can still use it in trees and heavy snow.

    The later cambered model has it advantages too, mostly if you ever hit a groomer…[Read more]

  • The Amplid is a great board. Everybody who rides one seems to love it.

    Dropping weight on your setup is pretty nice, but after a recent trip I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t really matter for me. Turns out one of the heaviest setups I tested this season was the fastest on the skintrack. Weight is not everything, there are many more…[Read more]

  • ieism replied to the topic Reverse sidecut/taper in the forum Splitboard Talk Forum 3 years ago

    I dunno. I’ve been on Furbergs for a few years now and still really like those for slightly more technical stuff. For other days with deep snow I like full reverse sidecut now. I’ve stopped caring about the scary handling on hardpack, they are too much fun when there is some fresh snow to care about a fall or two. The biggest thing is how fast…[Read more]

  • Cool, you can expect snow between roughly between Monte Rosa and Tonale there thursday till saturday, above 1000-1500m. It could be enough for the first lines if you pick non rocky terrain.

    I’m not sure where you are now, but Aprica, San Bernardino, Bosco Gurin, San Domenico, Macugnaga are all really cool small places to ride if they get…[Read more]

  • The Pyrenees can be fantastic dry, deep pow, but it doesn’t get snow as often as the Alps. Sometimes it doesn’t snow there for months. I think Catalunya is quite frienly to vans and people living in them though.

    Switzerland is not an option, they don’t allow wild camping and fines are huge. It’s also a very expensive place to live if you don’t…[Read more]

  • Actually I didn’t think it was such a big deal either, but after a few days on it I can tell you it’s a pretty brilliant idea. I’ve owned quite a few splits now, and tested lots more but this is a pretty clever idea and I’ve yet to find a downside to it.
    It’s more solid, and less snow creeps between the boardhalves. It’s also easier to change…[Read more]

  • @HansGLudwig

    Just got back from Flatland Splitfest, we had 10 sets that we gave to participants and I used mine for 4 days as well. I can confirm that it works, the scale and colours took a little getting used to but it’s pretty good overall.

    I’m still keeping my Pieps on my other pole for a few trips, but probably not for long as the…[Read more]
