Just got back from St. Anton riding the board again for 3 days. No problems again, rides just like a normal one in powder and on ice.
Also did a bit of touring on it, but we weren’t comfortable with the avy conditions so had to turn back after a while. But at least I got to test the tour mode on a real mountain, and it was nearly perfect. Feels very solid and easy walking uphill.
I had to change to ride mode on a steep slope, so it was a bit tricky but it didn’t take me that long. Still some room for improvement, but overall i’m pretty happy with it.

Sending a bump to hear any news?
This is by far the most interesting Voile replacement I’ve seen so far.
I am still thinking about how to re-use the 3D inserts and Burton bindings I have.April 19, 2013 at 11:39 am #649732ieismParticipant
I don’t have a lot of news, it just works. It’s a little more work to clean the snow and ice of than a voile set but you get a stiffer lighter board. I have no doubts about durability anymore, other than having to retighten the screws after a few tours.

Time to resurrect this fun thread since we aren’t getting any damn snow!!! After talking with Ivar over the past couple days, I have decided to build a DIY swallow split (eventually) using Ivar’s puck design. Fist step though is to get an easier touring interface and what better way to do that than with parts I already have… Notch out some old ride bindings (the bonus to this design is that the only mod to the binding is the notches and ANY Binding will do, even those plastic ones!!! They also remain usable as resort bindings afterward.). Next was easily accomplished with an adaptor I made with round aluminum stock with a voile slider nut in the back and screwed the resort binding disc to get rid of those teeth and set puck height.
Why not take advantage of what skiers have over splitboarders in touring and extend that toe a bit!!! Nice long strides and toe bump during touring becomes a thing of the past.
Throw this thing in your pack for the ride down and enjoy the benefits of riding resort bindings in the backcountry…

I love this thread and GJ rughty. I was thinking of splitting a disc and mounting them on the two board halves. but since I only have plastic bindings left and cannot get my hands on split specific bindings I am stuck with the voile pucks until then. Will do a try and see how it holds up.November 26, 2013 at 10:33 pm #649735
