I am a newbie on the splitboard.
But the weight was the first thing I noticed when I set up my board the first time. The current binding interface could definitely need some improvements in that regard.

Keep up the good work!

If you are ready to make them I'd be ready to order.

You know there's a ton of interest here. Make them available and we will buy. I'm glad someone in our community is getting it done.

That's a sweet design.

I was wondering about the bindings while in the board mode. From what I know of the Voile pucks, there would be a space between your bottom plate and the top of the board. How you thought of putting a peice of UHMW to fill in this gap, or shortening the voile pucks? I think that it would stiffen the binding even more and get rid more of the side to side roll that the Voile design has (and that the old Burton design didn't have). Wider contact is more responsive right?

You're definitely close to having a final production design. Maybe a swiss cheese version to lighten them up even more?

Sell me a pair!?

That looks pretty sweet.

The only thing I'm curious about is that it appears the pin is only held in place by UHMW PE. There is a screw in front of it but does it go all the way through the UHMW PE to the AL? I'm not sure how much abuse that would take in ski mode before the UHMW PE starts to deform and open up or crack. I'm aware this is a proto and as such is more proof of concept than final product so it's very impressive even at this stage. Do you have any plans for reinforcing that area? Maybe an oil impregnated brass there or some other durable lighter self lubricating fiber reinforced thermoplastic like Vespel or Torlon. Although they may get brittle at low temps.

Lookin good either way. Keep us posted.

Looks like a pretty sweet design. Way to go!

the front of the binding does look like it could binding up in skin mode. The front of the toe mashing up to the ski itself. Couldn't really tell if this is an issue or not. Definitely an improvement. Let us know when these are available.

It's so simple, it's genius. Looks real nice, a refined final piece would probably become the standard for splitters.
