Forums DIY and Mods Voile Canted Channel Pucks – DIY? Viewing 9 posts - 1 through 9 (of 9 total) Author Posts October 20, 2014 at 8:27 pm #580221 bcall8 125 Posts What are peoples thoughts on using the new voile channel pucks on a DIY? Could these be used as an alternative to the square DIY pucks or the universal pucks? I like building DIY boards with the universal hole pattern so that stance angles can be adjusted but I prefer the idea of a solid puck. Would these be the best of both worlds? http://www.voile.com/voile-splitboard-hardware/voile-channel-puck-set.html October 20, 2014 at 8:40 pm #677959 firstlight 721 Posts You don’t need the channel one just the normal cant voile pucks. http://www.voile.com/voile-splitboard-hardware/voile-splitboard-hardware-puck-set-canted.html Adam West www.firstlightsurfboards.com.au www.firstlightsnowboards.com.au www.splitfest.com.au www.snowsafety.com.au www.mrbc.com.au www.backcountryglobal.com www.alpinefirstaid.com.au October 20, 2014 at 9:08 pm #677960 bcall8 125 Posts @firstlight wrote: You don’t need the channel one just the normal cant voile pucks. http://www.voile.com/voile-splitboard-hardware/voile-splitboard-hardware-puck-set-canted.html The point of trying to use the channel puck would be to have a solid puck rather than the pucks you mention which have a rotating disc for stance angles.

If you want a fixed stance it will be OK MY :twocents: Adam West www.firstlightsurfboards.com.au www.firstlightsnowboards.com.au www.splitfest.com.au www.snowsafety.com.au www.mrbc.com.au www.backcountryglobal.com www.alpinefirstaid.com.au October 21, 2014 at 11:31 am #677962 Matt Wood 328 Posts It wont work with a universal hole pattern but you can use them for a fixed DIY setup. I ordered a set by mistake and I intend to use them on a fixed stance DIY in the future. The universals are supposed to be available now but I haven’t checked this morning.

And heel and toe lift ar often overlooked. For my solid board i use a flat lifterplate in the front. And a Burton unicant set at about 7degrees heel lift and 1degree canting in the rear. ( would run a unicant disc in the front to if I could find one) Angles that might sound weird, but that gives me very balanced highback pressure in heelside-turns. And it also gives my rear foot the full range of movement to follow the terrain and suck up bumps. On flat bindings i have to increase the forward angle of the highback to get balanced highback contact / pressure front – back. That restricts the rear foots range of motion. So when i get on my other boards with flat bindings i feel much more restricted. To get heel lift on a splitboard binding, a loose wedge can be placed in the binding under the heel of the rear foot when going down. Just remember to adjust the highback angle to..
