SP United Split binding 2015

GENERAL OVERVIEW:

Coming back for another season, we are happy to introduce the SP United Split binding.

A splitboard specific binding that comes in two different versions, SLR (standard ratchets) and the FT (Fastec system – back entry binding system). These bindings are a basically a SP snowboard binding welded to a Voile slidertrack, shaving off some weight of the base of the binding and of the slidertrack itself.

It features an aluminum baseplate and it’s compatible with the Voile system, and an EVA footbed for a softer feel when riding or landing your jumps.

It is possible to purchase a splitboard crampon, designed specifically to fit with the SP bindings. This crampon can be installed on the fly and it’s completely locked once is installed.

SP United enters the splitboard specific binding market with a very solid product giving to the splitboarder community more different options to choose from.

From last year the binding has improved the material of the straps to offer more durability and lighten them, and also shaving more weight from the baseplate by removing material.

 

WHAT WE LIKED ABOUT IT:

  • The superior quality of the straps and highback, as well as a super solid construction, due to its large experience making snowboard bindings. Improved from last year
  • The automatic way to install the splitboard crampons, and how they can’t come out once they are installed. They even work pretty good with the heel risers on.
  • The toolless adjustability of strapss and highback.
  • Very good quality-price ratio.

 

WHAT WE LIKED THE LEAST ABOUT IT:

  • The extra height that you get because of having the slidertrack welded to the base of the binding, even though it doesn’t affect when snowboarding.
  • It lacks a negative lean in the highback, which would help to have a longer stride.

 

WHAT IS IT USEFUL FOR:

  • We believe it’s a great splitboard specific binding for any kind splitboarder from entry to moderate level, for any day-trip splitboard mission without compromising safety and comfortability. The straps and ratchets keep getting better year by year.
  • We would like to point out the great task of r&d of the crampons which means a great improvement for the splitboarder community.
