Since we are having so much fun with this topic, here's what I saw when I was in grad school more than 10 years ago. Space elevator with a CNT tether. No really... :scratch: :nononno: And there are still those out there trying to make it happen.

Not trying to hate on this, but had to raise the BS flag. I fully support research and dreaming big, just not a fan of marketing gimmicks. Call me old fashion.

thanks for the education from those above, now back to new gear

A couple of things that come to my mind:

Jones will not be offering the mountain twin splitboard, but they keep the solid board.
Burton will not be offering the Freebird anymore, just the landlord, spliff and anti-social.
K2 offers the channel system in the Panoramic split aswell, they don't change anything else, still offering the Kwicker
Smokin will offer a great looking splitboard called Back to the Woods.
Völkl snowboards leaves the Cashew behind and offers the Untrack, a more freeride-oriented board, as well as a splitboard specific binding with an on-the-fly crampon (base of the SP)

Thx

it looked the same as previous year, just a change in the design!

Not sure if this was the anti-social or the spliff... i think anti-social, but they were all quite similar!

what a horrible name for your company. and every time you look at your board you see a bone snapping? seems a bit wetarted to me but that's what stickers are for.... FUNKY shapes though, I feel like its the 80's and we are trying new shapes like back in the skateboard days.. cool to see the ideas play out good or bad.

This may already be somewhere on Splitboard.com but this is the run through on the Plum Splitboard binding and interface.

Check it out:

If it proves durable (looks to be given all the metal), and if they bring it to production (two significant "ifs"),


Worth noting that Plum's AT bindings have had their fair share of issues with breakages in the past. Hopefully they've fixed that now.

Why would any softbooter take advice from the most elitist hardboot Nazi out there??? :scratch:

because his argumentation is stringent and makes sense..., Heideggers philosophy is still important despite his Nazi-ness...

i would test this hardboot thing also, but i can't afford it, and no, i don't want to try with some other hardboots, time on snow is quality time...

Figures this would devolve into a flacid vs priapism pissing match. :roll:

Hahaha, Brooks, it is entirely unclear as to what you might be responding to here? My post was praising the bros Kloster for finally offering improved stance adjustability for the Karakoram Bindings, I did not offer any "advice".
Besides, perhaps, the Black Diamond Jetforce Packs, I think the Karakoram Prime is the most significant new gear introduction I have seen so far from ISPO/SIA for splitters.

Barrows, why? I have seen neither up close, but... The K-Prime looks overly complicated with with too much metal, especially the binding saddle. The Plum system seems far more elegant. I'd love to see a weight comparison but, by the looks of it, the latter system seems the bigger step forward.

I've been watching this thread alot the last couple of weeks. The innovation is awesome. But I have to say, it was a pretty good feeling to go through a transition the other day and lock down my pins: simple, tried and true. Call me old school, but it made me grin.
