Sick sticker, one of best designs I have ever seen. A small zig zagging uptrack to the right of turns might add something. Wish I had that talent.

Other considerations (who's got more?):

AT boots and Bomber splitboard bindings, 35 deg. front/30 deg. rear.

I like the rounded tips and tails (in split mode) on Burton's split - tips less likely to break on impact and tails less likely to catch pole baskets.

Could use reinforcement at outside of nose (inside when skinning) - the topsheet wears away from repeated contact with edge of other board half.

Tapered shape and longer nose would help board adapt to snow conditions on descent (nose up for deep pow).

High visibility colors for locating lost/injured rider.


Please do keep us updated. Where are you at school? How/where will you build your designs? Are you designing the interfaces/hardware, too?

Good luck!

Just to answer a few questions...

There have been 32 repsponses so far! Thanks to everyone for taking the time and answering thoughtfully. You're providing me with data supporting my thinking and design so far as well as some really good new ideas. I've started compiling the info and will post it when it's ready.

Also, I intend to contact you guys who mentioned your experience with composites. I do have a bunch of questions for you. Especially about S-glass and vacuum infusion.

Re: stickers. These are the only stickers I've sent to the printers this week. I think I have 2 free In-N-Out stickers that I got with my grilled cheese, animal style. I can probably part with them, so holla back.

About my school. I'm in the Industrial Design program at San Francisco State University. I came into the program with lots of graphic design experience, but I could barely drill a straight hole. When I started building splitboards, there weren't any available for me commercially because I'm small. Now, I have a Voile 153. Prior makes small splitboards now, too. I chose this project to learn about composite design and to gain skills at building with my hands. And, well, to make a lightweight splitboard so I could keep up with my badass friends. Goodbye, snowshoes.

I had intended to work on interface redesign, but my program lacks the mentorship and proper equipment I would really need to find success as quickly as I wanted (I am hoping to graduate this spring). I'm not a mechanical engineer and if I could have found a partner in engineering, it could have been ideal. But I'm learning a lot from this and I have the rest of my life for other projects.

Besides, I'm going to have 5 splitboards by May. That's not bad.

Thanks again.
