    Hi, I wanted to give an update on the Milligram-weight situation. So I got response from Amplid where they admit that my copy is too heavy, and it seems that it for some reason got the wrong wood core. Supposedly it will be even more fun to ride, and they have given me an acceptable deal on next years model.

    @mike Too bad to hear they are off. I…[Read more]

    Howdy again, I just got the 19/20 Milligram 163 and since Im a good mix of engineer and weight weenie I was quick to put it on the weight scale. Im surprised it actually weighs in at 3100 grams (3.1kg) without sticker or wrapping, while Amplids homepage states 2.8-2.9kg. They probably specify for without the clips, but they dont add up to 100g pr…[Read more]

    @schwalbster Thank you for your thoughts and reply.

    Hi, I know I asked the exact same question in this thread before, but there is one thing I`d like that might change your opinion. As mentioned earlier Im very interested in purchasing a Milligram but Im still very undecided between 158 and 163. My current bodyweight (without gear) is about 77kg which I know is in the upper weight range for the…[Read more]

    @scooby2 Thanks for prompt response! Yeah to me that seems to be the lightest binding setup there is actually.

  • Ok, thanks for the reply @doug ! Much appreciated.

  • @doug Thanks for the response. Just to clarify regarding the boot model. Are we talking about the “Backland Carbon” which weighs in at about 1100 grams per boot? Or the “Backland Ultimate” model at nearly 800 grams?

    @scooby2

    After you posted about this binding from Splitboard-Power Im really curious to hear your thoughts and experience about these bindings. Is there any reason not to buy these over the Dynos except from price? Im currently wondering if these bindings paired with Atomic Backland Carbon boots and Amplid Milligram board would be a good…[Read more]

    @doug, did you do any other mods than buying those link levers? Im looking for a fast&light hard boot but Im not interested in trying and failing with different mods. The link lever sounds like a good idea though. -T

  • Hi, any updates here? I really agree that a quick «snap-on» mechanism for locking the heel would be great for skating out vallyes, over lakes etc. The Voile strap seems too time consuming. No time for that when you’re mountaineering with your Dynafit Skimo friends.

  • Anyone here having an opionon whether this is easier with AT setup? However Id imagine skating is easier with the heel locked. Is there any AT heel locks typically used by splitboaders?

    Jonathan, thank you for the reply. 163 it is then….Im tired of sinking deep into the snow when uphill when my Dynafitter friends just float on top…so that’s a go for 163 vs 158. No way Im switching. I rather spend a few more calories. Should consider to attach helium-balloons on my pack haha 😀

    Buell, good to hear your opinion on the…[Read more]

    Hi, what is peoples take on this matter now in 2019 considering weight, robustness and ease of use?

    Considering jumping ships from soft boot setup 🙂

    Thanks!

    Hi, Im looking for a light and tough splitboard with mainly mountaineering in mind where 15-22 mile trips will be a typical distance which is quite far for me. I already have a Rome Double Agent which is actually pretty light compared to many of those Jones board etc, but I want something lighter that carries my weight better during skinning ie a…[Read more]

  • Thanks for your answer! Didnt realize I got a reply until now. I bought them myself for use on my Burton Imperial softboots (no heel welt so had to buy the heel baskets). I think they work OK on snow and hard snow at shorter segments, but on mix they flex too much around in my opinion. I ended up buying a pair of Petzl Sarken in addition for trips…[Read more]

  • Ive been using the Atyx FL45 pack several times now for splitboarding and summer mountaineering.

    Pros:
    -Lightweight
    -Minimalistic.
    -Just enough outer strops/loops to fit crampons, two ice axes and A/H-carry for the splitboard when split.

    Cons:
    -One big compartment (in addition to the small one in front) so things can “get lost” in there.

  • Hi,
    Mountain Equipment Tupilak or Arcteryx FL45. First one is twice the price of the latter. Ive got the latter and very happy about it so far. Ive threaded strops inside the loops on the backpack for A/H-carry (not availble on FL30). One compartment only.

  • Hi,
    Thanks for all the reponse guys! Due to very heavy investment for jumping ships to AT system I’ll stay with softboot setup. Of course I see the clear benefits with it during skinning and crampon compatibility for example. However its not superior in every aspect either…like the brackets needed when transitioning to ride mode etc which p…[Read more]

  • Hi, Yes thats what I ended up doing actually. I use the Petzl Irvis Hybrid now on tours where the need for crampon is undertain, and the Petzl Sarken if definitely crampon terrain and «mix». I think at least the latter works very well with rear basket.
