    ahh, when you are sponsored to promote a companies products you are bound by contract to support whatever they brew up, be it an energy drink or whatever. He is not a splitboard purist by any means. I thought he was very diplomatic in his description of where they fall in the market in that they weren’t the most tech for climbing but they are more affordable (or they will be in a few months 😉 ) and will feel familiar to what the legions of basic resort riders are used to.

    The Fourth Phase was a fantastic surf movie.

    This is all very funny.

    When Mike at Mountain Weekly News comes dangerously close to actually saying that a product that he tested sucks, you know that Travis Rice is slinging turds.

    Last Friday I ran into two guys who were both riding the Union Expeditions. While the carbon pair appeared to have slightly less wobble in ride mode than the non carbon pair, they both had the same problem. The rider, who has been splitboarding for a number of years explained that he preferred the feel and flex of these over his previous splitboard specific bindings. At the end of the day he mentioned that he did not feel the movement while riding (It should be noted that it was a powder day.)

    Who splits on a non-powder day?

    I have these bindings, and so far so good for me. Such an improvement in ride mode.

    I am curious to see how durable the baseplate will be over time. If it’s durable, hopefully they will be able to move away from the pin setup.

    @permnation you’ll have to let us know what you think.

    Ever since thr introduction of t he pinless bindings, I will not get the hype around it. It is not that I do not like it, but the only thing that I really find time consuming and perhaps annoying during swap over is the removal and applying of the skins, the pins never bothered me at all.
