    havent done any boot mods. pretty happy with current situation. rode G Rides for the last five years so these F3s are pretty damn comfy AND light havent even cooked em yet. direct mounted my dynafits with inserts i picked up. the pucks are also inserted. running karokorems clips instead of the sloppy yangs. getting ready to run and inside edge. on a NS T5 while I m waiting on Jonesy. Best set up ive ridden so far and about to get better. Dual climbing wires are a must!!!

    Does the mounting of the ski binding make it somewhat awkward being centered? As I’m sure you know most alpine ski’s have the bindings mounted closer to the rear.

    For general touring with a splitboard, the Dynafit toe piece with a Sparks Dynafit adapter plate works exceptionally well (better than soft boots) for touring, traversing and skiing down (intermediate slopes). I don’t think adding the Dynafit heel piece, is much of a concern for general touring and skiing smaller slopes. (hills that you would not transition to ride via snowboard). In fact, adding the heel piece can affect your snowboard stance width substantially.

    One thing I have noticed with the positon of the Dynafit placement is the tail of the ski drops quickly due to the forward placement which is nice for breaking trail or kick turns on steeps. Side-stepping either up or down hill has been problematic, having the heel to lock down has been very nice for these occasions. The extra height in the riser is a plus too. This set up was board first and option for ski’s second. with that in mind it was more about getting the bindings on the board and less about fussing on the placement to be accurate for being a pair of skis. As Pow-D-Rider mentioned it will effect the stance, I’m 6’5″ so the width between feet is not a problem. Just changed my angles and currently at 13Deg front 3Deg back and 22.25″ wide. Really like the new angles. Just wish my Prior was as wide as my old Super Charger 73, But I do not ride my split inbounds.

    I have been recently playing with a similar idea. A mad combination of all the crazy technology out there. My idea was to use an interface from a clicker binding with the cleat in the back and bottom of the binding instead of the boot. The cleat interface and release would be small and minimal and mount on the heel-side of the board. Two Burton EST channels on each side of the board (four total) would be fantastic. They make even more sense on a splitboard. A simple fixed attachment on the toe side with a pin on the toe of the binding. Then a dynafit interface on the front and rear of the binding not the boot. That way one could use soft boots. The bindings would give you all the rigidity you would need for basic skiing. I hate hardboots–it’s one of the main advantages of snowboarding in my view–and if one is going to use them, you just as well ski. Then again, I know how to ski. Hmmmmmm. Those Rossignol S3s and Dalbello VIRUS lite boots with dynafits looks like a pretty cool setup. 😉

    Like the idea of the tech mash-up. The quad channel idea makes much sense and could offer the most minimal interface for board mode. I imagine that continued small-time MOD innovation will lead to better choices for all of us. Would love to see some of the bigger Co’s take a gamble in this small niche market, I Imagine that those nordic engineers would/might love to sink their teeth into this than another ski-break design.

    I just got my dynafit heels mounted. Haven’t had a chance to get out on them yet, but I’ll post an update when I do.

    Stance is identical to my soft boot setup (never moved the pucks at all when I added the Spark adapters). The toe piece is now mounted direct to the board as well.

    Probably a bit heavier than the Voile climbing wires, but dual height, more durable, and the option to lock the heel when needed.

    15 and 0 degree stance, roughly 22.5″ wide on a 166 Prior Spearhead allowed



    Did someone say mono-ski? Hmmm… guess it’s already been done! They seem to be serious…. me, not so much!

    That is so damn slick! Maybe hardboots are the anwer. Perhaps the virus boots with that setup. Nice work. Decisions, decisions. I wish I had more money.

    !ROCK!
    Cant wait to hear how you like the new “multi-tool”!!
    I too have went back to a more neutral stance and really liking it. Need to get some better hybrid-binders, went back to the mtn plates for weight reasons only. Prefer the catek’s but way heavy.

    Why did you pick the virus light over the tlt5?

    thanks for the pics :thumbsup:

    But what are these AT bindings !? Seem to be the bomber ones, but not exactly :scratch: (without all the E-pads thing …)
    Did i miss something ? 😕

    Virus light?

    These are what bomber looked like last year before the new padded one came out.

    Awesome looking setup!!! I am unfamiliar with hardboot equipment but I am certainly intrigued. Just curious, is there any options for utilizing crampons with the Dynafit TLT toe piece?

    Have not tried these but have known about them for a while. Seem pretty straight forward and have some other cool mods for older dynafit heels too.

    treepilot: what’s the model of your dynafits and why did you choose those over any other model?

    Can someone measure the size of the toe or the gap between pins on the tow piece of the dynafit binding for me please. these setups look sweet!
