Interesting take on backcountry snowboarding gear management. The Ross Snow Tech “CONVERT” Binding kills two birds with one stone as it’s the world’s first snowboard bindings that doubles as snowshoes. The transformation seems straight forward and fast so if they operate well in the field you might want to give them a closer look HERE:
“The world’s first and only snowboard binding that directly “converts” into a snowshoe.
The Convert majored in style and minored in Aerospace Engineering. Adopting the mechanics of satellites, the transition from snowboard binding to snowshoe can be achieved in 30 seconds or less.
By releasing the highback to fold flat (behind the heel) and flipping the toe extension from beneath the base plate, there is no additional equipment necessary to instantly get you through the deep.
We hope you stretched those hammies cause the heel raiser, included in the design, is your ticket to the top.”
- The Four Point Mounting System: Meticulously engineered, our four-point mounting system provides maximum response, strength and instills confidence on those big mountain lines. Compatible with traditional 4×4 hole patterns found on most snowboards.
Locking Mechanism: Our proprietary over-center cam locks allow for rapid, tool less, conversion between your cruise and climb with no loose parts, pins or extra tools to carry around!
Integrated traction specific design: The baseplate, frame, and highback integrate snow pack channels and design features to provide you the traction to trust the tour.
Climbing Bar: No mountain stands a chance! Integrated heel raisers help you seek the peak and leave you wanting more.
