Just installed the dual wire system on a...

Just installed the dual wire system on a splitboard I'm currently building. I've noticed the long wire lays really close to where I want to install my rear binding. I'm not sure I can get the stance I want without flipping the wire vertical. How have people who've installed the dual wire getting around this?

Jarp,

There are a few things that will affect the interference of the bindings and climbing heels.

What measurements are you using to mount the touring brackets? If these are mounted too far back on the board, then you'll throw the pivot point off but also create a possible interference between the climbing heels and the rear binding.

Also, how far apart is your stance? Are you running a narrow stance? That could affect and create possible interference.

Plus how you mount the climbing heels in relation to the touring brackets will affect the height of your heels and the angle of your binding while touring.

Hope this helps, let me know some more info and I can do my best to help you out.

good product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these climbing blocks on my old split setup as well as the new hard boot setup. they're light, durable, and easy to install. the climbing wires support my weight well (5'8" 150 lbs). the first set lasted a full season of touring, about 80 days. the larger wire is massive and your skins or skinning technique will limit you're uphill travel before the blocks. I'm my opinion they're barely necessary unless you tour in a place similar to the wasatch where skin tracks go strait up the mountain. just my 2 cents.

Good improvement

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had the DIY kit which didn't come with the dual height wire. The higher wire makes it much easier for steeper touring. I leave booth up if I'm using the higher one and when or if it mellows out easy pole push for a flatter positioned binding. With the crampons attached to the board and high heel, you can climb surprisingly steep.

Everyone Needs Two Settings

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Why Splitboarders had to put up with only having one climbing wire height for so long is mind boggling. There is no other choice than to set up your Split with these dual height jobbies. Increasing the heel height makes it easier to climb steep terrain.

The hard part is getting your finger under the wire to raise it with a glove on, but Splitboarders are resourceful.

You don't use your grip on your poles to raise the wires? I smashed a finger once, that was the last time I used my hands

is the highest hight on the dual higher than the stock riser ? How much higher ?

Responded on

I've used both set ups, I've found the stock wires to be the middle height while the "high" is higher and the low is lower.
I like the ability to have 2 heights but at the same time I'm adjusting them so much as opposed to just making the stock ones work for me.

why don't you have these?

I've heard you can adapt the G3s, but I went with these for simplicity. Made steep climbs a breeze! smooth action on both levers, almost easier to reach with a pole handle than the original climbing wire.
My shins and calves thanked me my first tour with them up to Camp Muir. A splitboarding must unless you're just going Cross Country Splitboarding.

Skin straight up

Dual height climbing heels are essential for me. It is insane how much steeper you can go with the high bars.

Folks with regular heels will get angry at the steep skin tracks you will set... Don't settle for one height, when you can have two! Way to go Voile!

But, If you cut switch-backs you will use less energy, and cut a skin track others can follow easier.

Just something to consider......

I agree with Hayden! Not everyone has lungs like you Neil! But yeah these are a no brainer if you want to save your calf muscles from ripping!
