I'm looking to get my 2nd splitboard up and running soon. Right now I have an Arbor Draft that was split by Glide Inc and has had 3 bc seasons and 6 inbounds seasons. Obviously, it has become too much of a rock board.

A Ride Antic 162 wide is sitting in my garage at the moment with a total of 1 day on it. I am thinking of sending it to Glide Inc. to split. He has been excellent working with me and helping me with what I need. A lot of the info I have so far is thanks to him.

Problem: I need hardware. I want to be able to swap my bindings (Blaze LT) from board to board with no hassle. I know I need to get the LT touring brackets. I also want to use some K-Clips on it too. Furthermore, to fill in the gaps (heel risers, voile pucks, nose and tail clips, etc.), so does that mean I need to buy the Voile Universal Splitboard Hardware For Light Rail 2014? It doesn't even look like it has tail or nose clips with it! Furthermore, the pucks are probably different...

I need to buy:
Voile DIY Kit
K Clips
W/ Hardware and mounting template
LT Touring Brackets

Any way to save any money? Any useful advice?

You can pick and choose just what you need from Voile. A lot of people use the adjustable pucks on they DIY. They also now sell Spark LT brackets. Sorry no K-Clips, but they have they screw hardware to mount them. I also order and carry extra parts with me like screws, bolts & nuts; if you don't need them someone in your crew surely will.

The Voile guys (& girls) are super nice and can help on the phone too.

Do you live here in the U.S.?

If so pm me for details, as I am selling my Voile DIY Kit and a pair of like-new Voile skins used a few times.

I bought spare parts from Voile to have an extra DIY split kit, when I move from their touring brackets and Heel raisers to Spark Tesla system.
I bought DIY pucks including screws and t-nuts, screws for hooks DIY kit(got karakorams on my first so have a pair laying around) nose/tail clips, 10 extra t-nuts for the touring brackets and raisers.

Called the nice people at Voile. I talked to Sonja and she was a big help. I am able to piece together everything I need for about $200 which includes the K-clips from EVO. Not bad at all.

Still waiting on Powder Rider (check your pms) to see if his kit may be cheaper.

Find out today if A-Basin will happen. Have a feeling the boss will decline.

If A-Basin is a no go, once I receive all the pieces I'll mail them up to you. Or you can text (on phone or pm) me your address and I'll ship directly to you. Going to get a snowboard box from Christie sports to ship it.
