    I once did a rough calculation where 1mm at the alu backstop=1 degree of inclination.
    You can also use a smartphone app like Clinometer to get an idea of the angles on your previous setup vs the TLT6.
    But of course making small changes + test riding is the best option.

    Ok,thx WhitePine and Buell.

    I have lowered the lower boot ankle guards by 1cm on both sides and i have cut slots.
    Only on the inside(medial?) and not too deep (11’5cm from bootsole).
    Tested this morning at indoor ski (sad i know,but great for testing 🙂 and it feels very good.
    Going to cut the same depth on the outside and deepen the inside to…[Read more]

    Great post WhitePine.

    When you traversed with your softened TLT’S:
    Did you use a fully unlocked cuff (open top buckle)?
    or the “locked cuff+unlocked walk mode” trick? (closed top buckle but not engaging the fwrd lean lock)

    The full Phantom mod makes me drool because it looks like it will definitely make the boot very surfy in sideflex,but i am…[Read more]

    I have removed the original forward/back lean alu limiter and replaced it with a DIY bottom only alu piece.
    This increases the forward flex pretty much to the boots limit and it lets me get down low on toeside carve initiations,i like it.
    I have ridden like this for a couple days,no signs of harm to any part of the boot so far.

  • Wow Mansi,at those speeds you are perilously close to Fullbody Lycra territory…slow down!! 🙂

    Thx to everybody who answered,not knowing other splitboarders yet i wanted to know what the usual climbing speeds were .I think i’m doing Ok.
    Hope to get some good spring corn days next week…unless it keeps snowing.Powder>Corn but it is making…[Read more]

  • I am new here and i have searched for this thread…it must exist but i cannot find it.
    What uphill speeds do you use for planning a day of fun&games?.
    Most google results give a rather conservative 1000feet/hour that rando guides use with clients…and then i get skimo racer hits with cosmic speeds like Kilian Jornet’s 1400m(4200ft)/hour.
    I…[Read more]

  • The board hooks are Keffler made too right?.
    Like Voiles but adjustable?

  • Today was my second splitboard outing.
    In perfect spring conditions,no wind,no cold,no ice i managed 13min .Ahem.

    Guess i need some more practice.
    If you come splitboarding with me please bring something to read. 🙂

    I have tried to replicate what you describe at home (spoiler moving before inner piece) but i have not been able to.Neither with my foot in the boot or by hand.Not saying it is impossible but unless your calves are very thin at the bottom and bulge a lot at the spoiler height i cannot see this happening easily.
    But you have me worried 🙂
    So i have…[Read more]

    True snowboard mountaineering,very impressive riding.
    The couloir names are perfectly fitting,that is very acid terrain.

    Thx Schwalb,it took some work but i managed not to miss this season.And i am not missing skiing as much as i thought.This is fun.
    Hoping to get some good spring riding!.

  • Marc replied to the topic Dynafit TLT6 MOD Thread in the forum Boots 3 years, 8 months ago

    I have used them only for a week of resort snowboarding plus one splitboarding day.
    I ride the cuff very loose and i have not had that problem.
    I would check that there is no interference from the pant cuff as you transition from toeside to heelside.
    As a last resort i would fashion some kind of cuff lever safety lock that would keep it closed…[Read more]

    No Alps 🙂
    That is Valle de Aran in the spanish Pyrenees.There is a ski resort called Baqueira-Beret nearby.
    Not much snowpack thickness this season but the quality was surprisingly good,avalanche risk at 1 (i have never seen a 1 with powder…) and great sun and temp.

    I am so glad i risked buying this largely unknown setup.When i asked other…[Read more]

  • Marc replied to the topic First time splitboarding in the forum Videos 3 years, 8 months ago

    Yup,kind of dreamy (and pricey) setup i know…

    I have been a skier for 40 years but my left knee (broken 3 times) has become unstable for serious skiing.
    I almost dislocated it again last February and i decided to call it quits and switch over to snowboard.
    I had ridden before (two seasons ,about 15 years ago…) but the transition is going…[Read more]
