Hey folks.. Are ya hot yet??? Well, let's talk splitboard and get ya cooled bit A new Splitboard company that has made some interesting improvements in splitboard hardware. Their "Binding Saddle" works with Spark R&D binding, but allows you to have numerous angle options as opposed to the tried and true Voile set-up (FYI, I have obtained a set of these and will give a full review of them sometime in December). Additionally then have Hooks and Clips that are a complete new design with out-of-the-box thinking. Kevin Clark is the innovator behind these with degrees in mechanical & industrial engineering. Well, this year the have Splitboards coming to market. Currently, just a 158 & 162 board (I ride 165 or bigger typically). The standard model is $399…. Yes, $399 out of the box.. and they have a Carbon version for $750, which is about $300 cheaper than other Carbon models on the market. I emailed kevin for Spec's, which he responded quickly, sending me the spec's for the 158cm: Specs 158cm Contact length 116cm Waist 25.25cm Tip/tail 30cm Side cut Radius 6m Reference stance 584oc mm I sent him a follow-up email for some specific info related to stiffness, waist width of the 162 and camber questions. I did forget to ask about if the stance is set back.. But I will. At this point I'm impressed with the board design and what he is offering.
