    Also a new techbinding for ’15/16 from a very unlikely source, but I’m not allowed to reveal any more than that.

    Oh nice, Atomic is bringing back the Poacher, but with proprietary tech bindings? Sickkkkk….. :clap:

    Nah, its much, much cooler than that. It will be more like Koenigsegg building a snowmobile.

    They have been doing them for a while. A topic from Wild Snow from last May – http://www.wildsnow.com/9762/plum-ski-bindings-review/

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

    Feels like a space race. Exciting times.

    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 :scratch:
    I do like the nose shape on the other board, if for no other reason than to add some f’n variety.

    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.

    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.

    Found this over on WildSnow.com …

    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

    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!!! 😳

    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.

    This is supposed to be a guy from the Salomon team :

    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

    Agreed very exciting :thatrocks:

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

    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.

    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:

    Dear god, as if Gopros weren’t annoying enough, now we’ll have these little flying critters following every spoiled kid and bro-bra around on the hill. Time to buy a big fly swatter, or a shotgun.
