Salomon seriously put the touring inserts so far back that you can't mount a rear binding??? WTF :nononno:

Few things I noticed about the Salomon, Looks like it might not be compatible with any non puck bindings. Also what are the grey things between the touring brackets and the heal risers.

Dynafit-Gignoux New rando boot and binding for 2014/2015

Wonder if Barrows is going to try and modify this boot??? :thumpsup:

Seriously, I would like the "pin-tech" binding shown in the first image.

A few more (non-split) 2015 snowboard thingies if you can stand the pop-up adds. Really dig the Arbor turned Dupraz

This isn't a split and it's already available for 2014, but this is the first little board I've seen that I would consider owning.


Well now, if even you are considering a short board, it's time to take this stuff seriously!

My initial thought was that it doesn't look like the touring brackets are centered (set way to far back). Maybe it's just a show model oops.

I want to make sweet love to this deck!!! :oops:

The new NS graphics are very, very cool. I remember the huuuge backslash they had last year with the graphics they first showed. Several of the boards were redone before production, due to popular demand.

Salomon split looks kooky, a hinge in the middle of the board? One more thing for me to fiddle with at the top of the run, and it really can't be good for the ride quality... I wouldn't buy it, the board next to it looks rad though
:nononno:

Agreed very exciting :thatrocks:

Oh yeah, after thought...
What if the hinge breaks while you are out touring? Bad situation :nononno:

I'm huge fan of Salomon (running gear), but this is a waste of their energy - if they are going for the ski vibe, why not shape the center part so each ski has matching sidecut profile on both edges



Yeah, waste of money. Sorry Salomon. Imagine the time to put three different pieces together with freezing conditions. Obviously they didn't consult Splitboard.com once again. :nononno: Also lack of float while skinning with those skis. Who the F is working in their R&D department?

Salomon: If you want to develop new and improved split tech, talk to people who have a clue.

Salomon 3 pieces split. The center strip hinges in the middle and is packable.

Super-interesting 3-piece! Would make a lot of ascents in Europe much easier!
(less weight, Skis fit into skin track, easier sidehilling on non-powdery ascents)

Looks like there will be no hinge in the end, it's a 4 pieces split :mrgreen:
