Clever. With depth-limiting screws on the board, and with bails, more stance option holes and paring of unneeded metal, that could be an extremely light and simple hard boot binding design.

Very cool.

Looking forward to seeing this design evolve!

just looks heavy the plates look like ...weight!
and the vid show a cam where the binding would be ...
that would make it kinda hard to work!

needs improvement!

crazy - i think Flex line frome the board lift the slider up, and make a nuckel head.
test and ride it - the worst case is a brocken board....

I ride with AT boots so the arch of the boot fits right over the cam lock.
Voile pucks and sliders weigh 280g/foot, I'll have no problem making this lighter than that (at 335g right now)

Simple, minimalist, light.
I like it, interested to see a finished prototype.

I like it, snow and ice always make thing interesting though. Curious to hear haw it works in the field. Seems like it would tighten up the whole board :thumpsup:

Curious to what your stance-angles are? Will you add anti ice tape? I think Voile had some.

That's + 17° for my front foot, -8° rear.
I've always just sprayed things down with a silicon lube but a permenant coating of something would be nice

Something to think about: the square edges of that plate are going to point load the top sheet of the board. This point loading is going to lead to, at the very least, cracking of the top sheet, and eventually, cracking of the board. You are going to need to spread that load by creating a wider plate, and smooth radiuses at the ends.

Ya good point, I think that's what burton was driving at too
Once I drill the holes for the bails I can shape all those pointy edges. How do Phantoms deal with this, hard for me to tell, having not seen them first hand.

Phantom Splitboard Bindings have a wider profile plate, with large radiuses (mostly an oval shape), and the plate itself is a flat piece of 7075 aluminum, so it can also flex a little to distribute loads, rather than point loading the deck.
