What hardware comes with this board? Anyone...
What hardware comes with this board? Anyone have any recommendations on hardware?
The only hardware that comes with the board are the clips that hold the board together. You'll still need the Voile Universal Split Interface:
wich hardware would you recomend for this...
wich hardware would you recomend for this split, and wich binding?
Voile hardware with the Spark R&D bindings.
hardware then is easy to find replacements and much more affordable. Spark Bindings are light, tough and use burton ratchets which are smooth and replaceable
Worth every penny! Buy it if you value off-piste
foot- 11.5, weight 205, height 6'2". I mounted up the 164.5 to a pair of Karakoram Split30 bindings with G3 skins. The board alone is noticeably lighter than the regular t.rice pro. The whole set up is similar in weight (judged by holding under my arm) to a normal board set up with my pair of burton co2 bindings. The board tours really well and only requires some attention when skinning straight up a steeper section. Given the rockered nose, all I had to do was sit back a little on steeper sections to utilize the grip of the skin better. The rockered nose really helps skinning in fresh powder. The rocker also is different to get used to going cross trail, especially on hardpack/crust/ice. Just took a little bit of time to find that sweet spot for gripping with the edges. It's a different beast than a full cambered splitboard, but it took me one trip (up and down hill) to figure out how to handle the lib tech in tour-mode.
For ride mode- it rides like a solid board. Period. The construction is top notch and transfers energy equally to each edge and is very responsive. There is no loss of power, no chatter at speed, etc. Ride quality is not affected by this being a split board. Rode well switch, popped off rollers, and handled in-bounds terrain like a normal board. I did a few lift-accessed runs and did not have one problem with enjoying my day. When the board came it was actually signed by the person who built it- giving authenticity to where this came from- the USA. Holes are all well installed and lined up perfect for the Karakoram bindings. Zero complaints! Worth every penny (if you got it on sale!).

Does the split down the middle of the board...
Does the split down the middle of the board also have magnatraction on the edges like the jermy Jones Split?
Do you have to use the Karakoram bindings...
Do you have to use the Karakoram bindings along with Karakoram's accesories (hardwear) for this board? I understand the clips that are on the board are Karakoram. Could you simply use the Voile Kit and use bindings of your choice? Will that work?
It is recommended to use the Karakoram, but not necessary.
I've seen the Voile kit work on that board.
The only things from Karakoram that come on the board are the tip/tail clips and the toolbox-style latches to pull the board halves together. The ride-mode and tour-mode setup can be anything you want (Karakoram, Spark, Voile, etc.)
