we have tested the ultrasplit at Splitboard Journal - splitboarding.eu | en and well, using the R&D budget there are people around who would have developed a different system, or just relayed on the traditional one.

Splitboarding, maybe you're sincere, but you've had three posts total, all in necro threads, and two of them are linking to your website. Smells spammy. FWIW.

splitboarding
Which setup?

Hi that sounds great. The boards and bindings have improved a lot in the last few years. Which is your setup? Cheers and welcome to the world of splitboarding.

wellll they have full length teeth, but they are not crampons. i agree tho, if you're gonna get snowshoes go MSR - or get verts to compliment a split.

linvillegorge I agree that any difference on the downhill between a solid and a splitboard is negated by having snowshoes strapped to your pack in order to use a solid. I'd rather have a little more weight underfoot than more weight horribly off centered on my back.

snowshoes = no glide, sink more, carry your board on your back on the way up, carry your snowshoes on the ride down.

splitboard = glide some (lets you lift your legs less), float more, carry a backpack with BC essentials with no board or snowshoes strapped to it on the way down.

long story short; less work on the way up, less weight all around, better performance in nearly every condition.

snowvols Or if you like lots of powder check out powderwhores new movie. Wow such a good deep movie.

linvillegorge The only downhill performance difference I notice regarding splits is the weight. Then again, that may have a lot to do with my legs being straight beat from the skinning too.
