Best Splitboarding Accessories of 2016-2017
We’re embracing the movement between lift chairs and skin tracks. It’s inevitable. And as long as we’re all making safe decisions, more healthy and happy souls finding freshies wherever their dreams–and legs–can carry them, the better.
Last spring we spent a week testing splitboarding gear in the rugged backcountry surrounding Crested Butte, Colorado. Boards, bindings, boots, beacons, and all the other important stuff you’d carry for a big day in the mountains. Then, in an effort to help readers make smart buys before heading to the hills, we chose the gear that performed best. Here it is. Happy trails!
G3 Alpinist High Traction Skins
A new tail clip has a swiveled and flat hook specifically made for splitboard edges.
Mammut Pulse Barryvox
We tested it at Telluride’s Beacon Basin and found the interface intuitive and user-friendly.
Spark R&D Ibex Crampons
Teeth are fully engaged with or without the climbing wire for maximum security on dicey terrain.
Uses include bindings strap replacement, securing broken skins clips, broken crampons, and so many more things you’ll discover.
