does anyone know if there are climbing wires (heel raisers) for the voile that are slightly longer? has anyone done anything to his/her splitboard to make these higher?

the voile std climbing wires could be a little higher to provide more raise.

thanks

you can get higher risers from voile. I think the should offer two together. All it would take is making the shorter one narrower than the tall one so it sits right inside when there both down, then you could just pick one. I should get a free set if they make them cause its my idea. :idea: :wink:

they already have heel pads with two climbing wires, check their telemark stuff. http://www.voile-usa.com/bcaccessr.html I would just call them and ask if the holes for mounting are the same as your splitboard heel pad, if they are not you can just plug the old holes and mount the new heel pad.

I've heard that the G3 dual height climbing heels http://www.genuineguidegear.com/telemar ... heels.html
fit the same bolt pattern as the stock Voile heel lift. The 8mm version is the one to look at. :D

The tail-end of the Voile splitboard crampons fit under the stock heel risers in fixed mode. Are these other Voile and G3 heel risers compatible with the split crampon? If not I guess you could modify them.

I put the G3 dual heel risers on my prior split which was drilled for the Voile hardware. the hole pattern is the same. you pick up the heel risers in varying wire lengths for about $20.

Voile makes two lengths of climbing wires. I bought my longer pair directly from them.

Does anyone know if the G3's will interfere with the sparks/Mr. Chomps?
