What a great time to be a splitboarder! The brand new Enfuse Shift bindings system is a minimalistic interface that is a solid option for those looking for a high quality piece of craftsmanship. Made from scratch by splitboarders in the Czech Republic, using Nitro Snowboards software (straps, ratchets and ladders), these bindings will definitely raise a few eyebrows on the skintrack.
Nice and easy to set them into touring mode, and having two fixed heel raisers, the Shift works very well on the uphill. Add it up the possibility of not having positive angle on the highback for a great experience skinning up the mountain.
One might think that the interface would ride somewhat nimble, being the most minimalistic interface out there. But far from that, the whole binding-interface connection feels solid in any kind of snow condition and terrain.
The padded highback and comfy straps give you a smooth ride, whoever it does lack some sort of padding on the baseplate for those long Spring days where the conditions are very mixed.
The hexagon highback angle adjuster offers up to six different angles with just a simple twist, while the straps also offer tool-less adjustability, pretty convenient when you are out in the backcountry. The rest of the screws require only a 4mm Allen tool, not having to bring too many tools in your backpack.

Enfuse Shift bindings
The Shift uses a whole new interface system, not based on any system available in the market. A really minimalistic approach that uses basically four screws per foot, to where the bindings attach thanks to its orbital locking system. A bold approach that it’s been proven to work, even on the coldest conditions thanks to its specific shape.
