    Ok…So I have been contemplating on how to break out on this new project I have been working on the last few months and figured this is as good a place as any. All I can say is this system is nothing like Karakorams solution.

    I can’t post pics up yet or describe the functionality, but who hear would be interested in a heel lock down which is compatible with Triad, Rughty Conversions, All Sparks, Voile Lightrails, and All Voile slider plate mounted bindings?

    I am curious to see your design.

    Has any one consider designing something like the heel/lift unit from an old RAMER R binding?

    Because a splitboard is so wide Instead of turning the heel-unit 180 degrees to engage the heel-lift or heel-lock. One could turn it ninety degrees to select heel lift or lock down.

    I would certainly be interested, as long as it it doesn’t cost to much. :thumbsup:

    I can’t see your pic,, but your description seems far too complicated to be the same as what I have done. Price would be really cheap…

    I’m all about doing free heel telemark ski turns.

    But I sure as hell would like a heel locking system for tricky uphill bits!! :bow:

    Someone find that vid of the old guy ripping manic tele turns on Voile plates. While I would appreciate some form of heel lock, I haven’t found conditions as of yet where it would be an absolute necessity. i.e. tail clips on skins. Patience is lighter. :twocents:

    That was Pontus

    I’m a decent skier, and even telemarketed for a few years. But when gettin through tight trees in rolling terrain, with sloppy slush, it would be very nice to be able to lock it down. Do a few miles of spring Gore Range runout and get back to me about your split-tele skills…
