Dear god, as if Gopros weren't annoying enough, now we'll have these little flying critters following every spoiled kid and bro-bra around on the hill. Time to buy a big fly swatter, or a shotgun.

Am I really the only one who gets the point of the 4 piece Solomon board? It's not an everyday board, it's a board for a very specific purpose and it looks like a great addition to the quiver. I might have to see about getting one or something similar, I'd love to have it for spring ski mountaineering days when it's miserable to walk on wide planks all day long.

No you are not, BUT as I stated earlier - I'm a fan of Salomon but this is a shitty design.
If I were looking for this tool I'd get this one (e.g. skis with more symmetrical sidecut)

I don't see the point on doing a 3-parts splitboard if the two halves don't have a sidecut on both edges, like the design from Phenix!

What's the purpose of an inner sidecut?

Sidehilling grip will be better with a straight edge.
