There is video (with subtitles) on the atomic we page http://www.atomicsnowboarding.com/index.php?id=poacher called poacher TV. A bunch of guys go out for an overnight tour with the atomic poacher (they even do a beacon check in the beginning) and they go over (briefly) the split function. There is also a pdf manual on their web page that explains the transition.

The climbing bar is a device attached to a splitboard that elevates your heel to aid with steep skinning. The topsheet is the material on the top of a snowboard.

This is the least of my concern with the Atomic split.

The shape, lack of tip-tail hooks, funky interface, lack of binding options, lots of pieces, etc are the issues I foresee.

hey guys, if it's not too late for avoiding a mistake I translate it to german for ricolas:
damit ist gemeint, dass die ausklappbare steighilfe mit der zeit das topsheet beschädigt.

sie schlägt ja immer auf das ungeschützte topsheet auf. das kann auf dauer nicht gutgehen!
lies bitte auch hier: http://www.erstespur.de/viewtopic.php?t=3987

mein rat: kauf dir ein board mit voilé-system!
my advice: better get a board with voilé-system! :wink:

I recently bought the Poacher 164 and have used it a couple of times. Hopefully I can help some people out with info. Here's some pro's and con's I've found so far.
Pro's
-lightweight and nimble going up
-using the "ski tip tails" as tips makes the board track well
-bindings are comfortable
-plenty of stance options
-skins (included) are full length and attach at both ends so there's no peeling
Con's
-can't use my normal freeride bindings and highbacks don't fold down
-rides shorter than a 164
-crampon tool does the job but is clumsy
-I ride agressively and I'm not sure if this board has the stiffness I like (it's early days yet)

These are just a few things I've noticed. Hope this helps.

Mountain Gear has this Atomic Poacher splitboard with skins, crampons and bindings for $719 now, 20% off the original $899 price. Hope to have mine by next weekend and will post about it then.
