Lift tickets are too spendy anyway.
The Burton S-Series Split Snowboard has been the go-to choice for serious backcountry riders since it's beginnings, and this season hasn't changed the facts. Unlike other split boards that take after skis for their flex, Burton made this one to actually ride like a board (a bad-ass big-mountain-line destroying board). The S-Series takes a standard Voile split binding setup (sold separately) for flawless function back in the hills. While this board features a slightly tapered shape, it comes with a twin flex to let you ride switch when you need to.

just got an s series, rides and hikes great, but i broke the little red plastic lever on the binding, does anyone know where i can order spares please?
Depends what binding you have, but for a part like that the manufacturer is always your best bet. Most retailers wont carry things like that.
thanks josh, iv had an answer from burton already and hopefully its in the post :)
actualy does anyone else have the 2010 s series, is yours difficult to close the binding plate on the mount, i clean all the snow and ice from everywhere, but it needs so much effort to close the mechanism ?
can you use a splitboard for normal...
can you use a splitboard for normal skiing
No. The bindings aren't set up for that, the edges aren't parabolic, and the points will dig in. Terrible idea.
You can ski 'em. But other than those long approaches with lots of rolling terrain, you wouldn't want to. I've seen guys rip tele-turns on splitters just to prove it can be done.
You can meadowskip all day though, and if you do alpine turns (carefully, there's no way to lock your heel down) you do indeed have a shaped edge to turn off of on your downhill foot.

So. I herd this years s-series with the s-rocker is the supermodel X which has a 10mm taper. Can anyone confirm this as a fact?
True, inspiration is based off the supermodel shape but it does not have S-rocker...
Its 10MM tapered and 1 inch back.
Here is a quick write up: "Offering mountain goat access to the most remote stashes, the S-Series splitboard is the ultimate self-propelled pow slasher. In touring mode your soul will find bliss as you effortlessly glide skyward atop the snowpack. For the ride down, we sought inspiration from the legendary Supermodel to guarantee the board floats, spins, and slashes like a snowboards supposed to."

Does it come with skins? I'd presume not since it's not in the description, split hardware? Slider Plates? Slider Pucks?
The price is great, and I'd try out a burton split for sure, but it would help to know what you actually get.
It says right in the description that the Voile split kit is sold separately... "it would help to know what you actually get", it would help if you actually read the description.
It doesn't say that at all in the description. This is as close as it gets and it's quite vague: " The S-Series takes a standard Voile split binding setup (sold separately)"
I was asking an honest question before dropping 7 bills on a splitboard and have been splitting for several years, your tone is neither helpful NOR appreciated. Thumbs down!!!
this board rules.
this board rules. burton has always been the goto company for snowboard innovations no different in the case of splitboarding (with the exception of their phased out attempt of splitboard bindings). :) in any case, this board rides like the description says, "Burton made this one to actually ride like a board." it was manufactured to work seamlessly with the Voile Universal Splitboard Interface work together like a charm. on the way down it feels no different than riding a regular snowboard. on the way up....well, it's awesome.
