Questions & Reviews
Being a hardbooter can be super frustrating as I look at the hundreds of options skiers have and I can't find a single working option for splits. On my skis I have the Trab vario 2 and it's worlds away from thengear offered to splitboarders. We are left in the dark ages. This Puts me out there in major situations with makeshift gear. Not a nice feeling.
Still on the RD site it states the R&D adapter plate is designed for the use of Speed Radical, Speed Turn, or Low Tech Race toe pieces. It seems I would need to purchase a new adapter plate (which adds cost, weight, complexity and offsets the toe hinge point forward). However this may be worth it in order use the trab toes, which are the best ski toe design out there but still overbuilt, expensive and with too large a footprint to be a good option on a split. I've already run through too many ski toes and adapters. The original voile pin system is lighter, smaller, cheaper, simpler and easier to repair in the field than any ski toe adaptation so far. But it's clunky and leaves the weight of the slider plates on your feet while touring. The ups and downs of a hardbooter.
While people assume splitboarders don't need an efficient set up for some reason, but let me reiterate that we are out there doing the same stuff you are. I will be out on multiple 20+ day self supported ski tours this winter. Right now I would not attempt this on my split because the equipment just isn't there yet. But I'm tiring. I see you are too, I thank you for that. Let's keep it moving forward and not support plum or dynafit/phantom who are putting out subpar gear and see if we can't get trab to make an actual splitboard binding.
