I'm tempted to install Telemark Tech System with Quiver-Killers onto my splitboard(s).

Image



Since, I own Scarpa F1 boots and Dynafit toe bindings.

I raced tele back-in-the-day.... on three-pins.

And inspired by MountainMurph (Bob Athey); Telesplitter

So, what do you think???
Ahhhhh "minutiae season" everything is going Psychedelic. I need some Pow... right now!!!

Tele systems might be possible, but I have heard bad things about quiver killers on a board. Thinner wood gives them less bite.
T-nuts?

Quiver killers are a go on the split. Better than ski screws the techs tell me... I have the QKs on 2 boards now, never a problem with them. :twocents:

That guy rips tele turns for a split! I have always imagined that splitting would advance to the point that you could confidently tele, somewhat heel lockdown, downhill ski and snowboard with the same set up. i love cruising the groomers in ski mode on the split, blows people away when they see it. that’s also why i like camber underfoot. try skiing the T.Rice split! not happening on anything but blower. seems like the hard booters would have a big advantage for this? not that skiing is much of an interest, just curious if the split skiing is much easier on HB?

Everything is easier and superior in a hardboot.

Scored a TelemarkTechBindings TTS at the Aspen Ski Swap for a great price. So the Dyna-Tele-Quiver_Killer-Split project is on! HooRah! :bananas:

Bummer! The TTS is not going to fit with everything else I have installed on my Storm Dyna-split. :cry:

Apparently, I needed a smaller TTS binding size. My Boot size is a Mondo 27

Anyone else interested in a Telemark Tech System (TTS ) beta. size long. Instructions not included.

Comes with Dynafit Speed Radical Toe Pieces (like new). Spark R & D is selling these for $180 dollars.

See http://www.wasatchski.com/tts.htm

Asking $150.00 dollars (firm) plus shipping to the US only. Payment via PayPal only.

The TTS retails for $400 dollars.
PM me if interested.

What's the difference between the long and the short? Wire length on the heel throw? Something like that should be easy enough to remedy. Contact the manufacturer & see what they have kicking in the parts bin?

All that being said, I'd be interested in those Speed Radical toes if you'd consider shipping north of the border.

It really is has to do with that my Spark R & D adapter plate interferes with mounting the TTS on the splitboard.

Sorry, I prefer to ship in the U.S only.
