This reminds me of the rim size wars on mountain bikes. 26, 650, 29, yadda, yadda, every niche needs peronalized gear. It's gotten overwhelming. If you can afford a quiver of splits, go for it- these would be nice for the reasons some have mentioned. But riddle me this: If it's got more than one split, doesn't it then become a splitzboard???
^^^^ This is really cool, and the Spark/Burton binder too
I am stoked to see larger companies working with these smaller split-binder manufacturers. First because it will spread the word about rad companies who are innovating like crazy and deserve some more recognition. Second, this will get more people riding on better gear and therefore more people will have a better expirience (better ride mode, easier touring) when they go splitting.
This will grow the sport more than anything else
That is called pushing the program forward my friends.
