OR Show — You Asked for It — Atomic Splitboard by Lou Dawson January 24, 2008 written by Lou Dawson January 24, 2008 The Atomic Splitboard. Latch detail. Binding pivots for touring mode. As far as we could tell with a quick glance, the binding comes off via this mechanism, in turn attaching to the touring pivot. 7 comments 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail previous post Girl’s Take, OR Show – Day 2 next post OR Day 3 – Scarpa’s New 7 comments Sol January 24, 2008 - 5:54 pm Thanks Lou, that was a fast response. Did you get a chance to pull one of the bindings off to see what mechanism lays beneath? Sol. Joel January 25, 2008 - 9:33 am It looks like Atomic is making their own hardware? It’s great to see another player in this niche market – there’s not nearly enough and the current hardware is in bad need of re-thinking. I’d love to see how the Atomic system works. I’ll be looking for it! Kudos to Atomic. Gary January 25, 2008 - 12:32 pm It’s good to see Atomic coming out with a new system. Joel, what is so bad about Voile’s system? I have been using it for years. About the only drawback I’ve had is weight. That certainly does not look to be a problem solved with the Atomic system. I have found Voile’s system to be elegant in it’s simplicity. Something the Burton version did not go for and you paid for it in an even heavier product and problems with icing. bcrider January 25, 2008 - 1:01 pm Thanks for taking some pics and providing some info Lou! damian January 26, 2008 - 8:40 am Burton failed, Voile did well getting a good ball rolling… now it is time for other players to refine and improve on Voile’s interface (which is clunky but workable). This might be a good start, it might not. Thanks for the info. palic January 26, 2008 - 4:10 pm Uppss, that’s nice with new player in splitboard area! Lou, and what about triboard? German made and patented, see http://www.t3-splitboard.de. Suppose, the only trouble for not being so world-wide known triboard is that it is patented. And the triboard is not known and spread in splitboard commnunity. NM SB October 22, 2008 - 7:57 pm According to one review (in german) the whole system including bindings is 12.8 pounds, which is two pounds lighter than any reported full voile system I’ve seen. I haven’t seen a riding review of this yet, though. Comments are closed.
