So I still don't really want to drop the cash on a split board so I've been looking for the solution. Product
At first I saw these and thought what the fuck? Now starting to think these along with verts could be a good transportation system when riding in the back country.
I think those things would fucking suck. Seems like they're made for people looking for a walk in the park, not tough back country use. I bet they lack the rigidity for use in tough terrain and could you imagine puncturing one of those things deep in the back country and needing to wade through deep snow for a considerable distance? Fucking suckage would ensue.
um ..... you are talking about the ones that cost 220 dollars right? What happens if you are out in the woods and you break the pump or you pop it. I am not saying you can’t break a normal snowshoe but it also does have metal spikes to help climb icy areas.
I don't know. I feel like rocks puncturing them wouldn't be the problem. BULGARIAN MOUNTAIN RESCUE
They have some stories of groups that use them. They also have crampons on the bottom for harder terrain. I can see the whole deflating problem however.
Yeah but is the weight saving really going to kill you if you don’t get them. Lets say you get the atlas 10 25” snowshoes that I have they weight 4.5 lbs and cost me 160 dollars. You get the combo snowshoe at 220 that you have to blow up and it weights 1.75 lbs, that is only 2.75 lbs different. And I have 60 more dollars to spend on beer and other cool shit like better poles.
