Retail Buyers Guide: Splitboarding FW19/20
Please outline up to three new key products of interest to splitboarders in your line, and tell us what makes them so great.
Multientry Split – only model in the line-up. Now featured in the multientry version, which allows you to use the binding in 2 ways: classic strap-in and easy-in & easy-out. This was decided upon due to the huge resonance for a late model from the 18/19 season.
Onto functionality now; how do you make your stuff work better than the competition during skinning, during transitions and riding?
Our Fastec system (easy-in/easy-out) is extremely efficient and easy to use. The new multientry version of our split bindings make them easier to use, even in the most complicated situations. Our “on the fly” crampons can be attached or removed without having to disconnect or step out of the binding when climbing.
What unique features will splitboarders dig about your gear next year?
The new multientry version of our split bindings makes them easier to use, even in the most complicated situations, and our on the fly crampons.
How are graphics evolving in your splitboard-focussed lineup? Any particular trends going on?
We refrain from any major graphics. It remains a conservative market.
What’s the ideal-world distribution channel for your gear as splitboarding evolves? B2C, speciality retail or wider? Do people still need advice on this stuff, or can they buy them by themselves?
Speciality retail still remains important as customers do need help when buying their first set-up.
