    These have a heel lock that is skiable, I will upload some video on Monday. They fit some other bindings. Follow us on http://Instagram.com/rangerbindings and Facebook for updates. Thanks for the stoke it’s still coming out of the garage on a shoestring budget.

    I went and saw Chris and his workshop while in NZ for Splitfest.
    These bindings are amazing! lots of R&D and some new concepts so keep an eye on Chris and his design.
    Great work mate

    Cheers

    Thanks for coming over Firstlight Adam, Its nice to see people excited about bindings. Its been a lot of long nights in the shed cranking out and iterating bindings over and over again. But we are here.

    This is it, something that i could only dream of at the beginning.

    Thanks to everyone that has been interested in this endeavor, I probably would of given up after the first or second years of RandD if it were not for you. Rest assured splitboarding will continue to be pushed by the riders.

    Dude way to go on the heel lock!

    It would be cool to figure out a way to unlock the heel without taking off the binding, but its still way better than no lock at all.

    Very smooth stuff, love the new leather straps.
    When are they released and will you ship to Europe this season?

    Bindings are ready. Tech toe pieces are ready. Preorders go out first, a few will have these at the end of October. Everything will go onsale after that.

    Here is some new things i have been working on, i looked around for straps i wanted on my bindings and there was nothing that i liked so i built some. Focus was on Light weight but supportive ankle and cap strap. A urethane blend with leather and foam core for the ankle strap and a full urethane cap strap with ratchet.

    Here we go they are done. The Bossu.
    Wood veneer over e-glass high backs stiff with flex where its needed. Leather straps sewed on an old singer sewing machine (thats why i learned to sew at primary school). Urethane moulded in place contact points where the board and binding touch. Almost all of it (but the ratchets) built in-house in garage.

    Beautiful man nice work.. This sets a new bar for touring in soft boots (from my vantage point). Does the the tech piece work with hard boots as well?

    “Built in-house in garage” really needs to be trademarked! :thumpsup:

    I told my brother to check your bindings out (he’s in the market). Is facebook the only way to order at this point? He’d be ordering from Virginia. He’s into the ground-up operation you’ve got going. Any word on price? Peace

    Hey Zude, they are $549usd + shipping (around $65usd) to the USA . Includes ride mode and tech touring mode. Climbing bars won’t be available untill spring. Must use karakoram clips on the board.

    He can order by sending me an email rangerbindings@gmail.com. Still building a webstore. First bindings will ship on the 25th of November. Everything is built to order. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Chris,
    why does it need Karakoram clips?
    Shipping to EU, Sweden specifically?

    It works best with Karakoram clips it might work with Chinese hooks it has clearance to but i recommend Karakoram clips this is what i tested with. You could go no clips just tip and tail the binding can take up the slack in theory.

    I have been running around on the concrete and shingle with the bindings on trying to destroy the moulded in place urethane bushings but still looking good. My favorite part is the touring… the possibilities from here are exciting. Fitwells with some hardboot inserts please.

    I’m interested in these things, they look sweet. I’d like to see many more pictures of these things though, some shots of the board mounts or a new video with the actual production model showing all the pieces and installing the binding in ride mode would go a long way for me.
