Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Prior Splitboard Set-up Video Incorrect Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) Author Posts May 1, 2012 at 10:27 am #576894 fusionmeat 24 Posts All, I assume I am not the only one to notice but couldn’t find any feedback so I am putting it out there. In the video “http://www.splitboard.com/index.php/featured/news/279-prior-splitboard-set-up-video” at ~1:36 when explaining the installation of the “thin plastic shim” under the heel riser the explanation is incorrect. They advise to install the shim with the flat section toward the nose. If the shim is installed this way you cannot use the crampons in fixed mode. The wire ends will also be very close to the shim edge and have less surface support/contact. Also the Voile-USA stamping on the shim would be upside down. Sent Prior an email; I assume the video is new? I apologize in advance if the above is already known/on the forum somewhere.

That is some funny stuff if you are (*I still haven’t watched it) right. May 1, 2012 at 10:13 pm #655764 DrownedRat 119 Posts Good catch fusion! I just watched the video just for this and they are definitely setting up the wires incorrectly. It sounds like the voice over is saying to do it correctly though. 2017 Baker Splitfest, March 17th to 19th!

Do as they say, not as they do…. Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
