When developing the 157 Split our goal was to develop a splitboard that performs equally well as our solid boards once going down the mountain. We’re all about the ride down the mountain - Performance Matters.
On the other hand we have spent hundreds of hours in skin tracks to find a skin and binding package that would perfectly fit our board. Not only going down, but also going up. During the development we came up with a third goal: buy better, reduce waste. At a certain stage we had so much stuff lying around in our car that we had to find a solution.
With the Karakoram Connect R bindings we found a binding that did fit all our goals. The Prime Connect-R is a light and stiff binding in the All-Mountain Prime range from Karakoram. This creates a light binding with a solid feel and gives a solid snowboard performance. A great binding to take along on your splitboard tour but also great for some solid carves on some hard pack groomers. Combined with the Quiver Connectors you can easily swap your bindings from your splitboard to your solid board which will save you some space in your board bag (and car).
Besides the pre cut fully customized Montana Skins and the Karakoram Connect R bindings including the split set up and the quiver connectors we added the Karakoram Wide Crampons into this package. Karakoram Splitboard Crampons have a unique design that gives you the grip of a fixed ski crampon with the ease of touring from a floating crampon.
In general Powfinder Snowboards can be ridden a bit shorter and wider than you would do normal. Don't be afraid to go for a shorter length. The boards float very well due to their specific shapes and increased surface. Experience has learned us the following:
149: Best for light weight riders, young guns or girls. The 149 will also suit average sized riders who like an more playful ride.
* waist wide: 255 mm * boot size (EU): up to size 43 * rider weight: 40-74 kg 157: Best for average sized riders who love to ride every where. The 157 will also please bigger riders who like more playful ride. The 157 could also be the weapon of choice for smaller riders that like a stiffer, longer board and enjoy to ride those longer turns.
* waist wide: 270 mm * boot size (US men/EU): will fit up to 46 * rider weight: 50-95 kg
164: Especially designed for the taller and “plus size” rider: Bigger boys need bigger toys. The Morris 164 signature has a waist width of 28 cm, ideal for riders with the largest feet The 164 will also please powerful, average sized riders who like a stiffer, longer board to enjoy those longer turns.
* waist wide: 280 mm * boot size (US men/EU): will fit most boots * rider weight: 65 - 115+ kg
