Forums DIY and Mods Heel Lock Down Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 49 total) 1 2 3 →Author Posts November 6, 2012 at 12:55 am #577532 rughty 620 PostsOk…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? November 6, 2012 at 1:04 am #661288 Powder_Rider 498 PostsI 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 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… November 6, 2012 at 1:35 am #661291 saign 330 Posts @wasatchfreeride84093 wrote:I would certainly be interested, as long as it it doesn’t cost to much. :thumbsup: +1 November 6, 2012 at 2:15 am #661292 JimmyC 351 PostsDefinitely interested!!!

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 November 9, 2012 at 2:54 am #661303 acopafeel 134 Postshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23cZDK_sNEY:thumpsup: November 9, 2012 at 2:16 pm #661304 tuff_enuff 46 Postshaha, thanks for sharing this awesome video!

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… November 10, 2012 at 5:41 am #661306 tiltedworld 406 PostsCount me in for a few.
