What I want most right now would have to be one of these Voltage Design split boards! hand crafted in Whistler, designed and sold limited edition here in Japan. This is a must have item for the back country lover who wants to cover more terrain this season. Split boards have been around for awhile, I made my first one ten years ago. They kind of faded out for awhile, but they are coming back strong since last season. Jeremy Jones has been very influential with his Deeper movie project and of course the bad economy combined with crazy lift ticket prices must be driving people into the freedom of the back country.
Burton has restarted making their split board, this time without the crappy binding system. So now you can use the Voile system and that means you can use the Spark R&D binding system featured below. I have ordered my binding through Voltage in Japan and can’t wait to use them this season. The design brings you lower to the board and is super simple to use. Check it out then start saving some money to buy a full set up.
