163cm is the largest size available in this board, so 170 is not an option.
Burton has an interactive sizing tool here, check it out: http://www.burton.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Burton_US-Site/default/Product-SizeCharts?pid=W14-11540100
I've used these quite a bit and have not had that issue. The bindings are on a pivot hinge system, so the platform doesn't spring back into place like some snowshoes that use a tension or twist system.
The price is for a set of pedals (2 pedals).
How old is your son? Will his board size be larger next year? A good snowboard bag can last for years so it may be wise to size up if there any questions. Also, It is common for snowboarders to take multiple boards on trips and the extra space can come in handy.
That said, from personal experience, I would suggest you look at the more structured bags from Burton and Dakine. The Dakine Tour bag for example is close to the same price but offers better board protection, extra storage and a firmer more structured bag is easier to manage than a soft bag while traveling.
Yes, it fits in the shovel and probe pocket of the Float 32.
For the smaller Float packs it would have to go inside the main compartment, but you're all good with the 32.
APX for the ride down
Sorry Davin, I should have elaborated a little more. Yes, they work with other SPD SL pedals not just the DA 9k.
Hey Jake, doesn't look like you can get these pants or this brand on Backcountry anymore. Check out their site though for current seasons colors on the L1 Americana Pant: http://l1outerwear.com/outerwear/americana-pant
233g for the pedals only. Cleats and hardware are an additional 87g. So, the pedal system is 320g total.
A lot depends on your riding style of course and it's not always the length that matters; width, side cut radius and taper/shape all factor in, but at 190 pounds you're definitely maxing out this particular board.
It can be a lot of fun to throw around a shorter board at the resort. But, if your plan is to come out west and ride deep powder it will definitely be a little short. You'll find that you are submarining that board and struggling to keep the nose from diving.
Yes. Using this kit, you will be able to mount her current bindings on the new splitboard.
The bindings will mount to the Voile Slider Track with t-nuts (included in this kit) and then you just use the circular mounting plate the bindings came with, you'll adjust stance angle by moving the pucks and tighten down like a regular mount. No extra drilling is required.
To switch them back, you would just dismount them from the Voile Slider Track and remount them on her standard board.
If she really gets into splitboarding, you might want to look at some of the newer split specific binding options from Spark R&D, Voile and Karakoram that eliminate the need for the slider track altogether.
It is actually DC (for DC Shoe Comany) not DG.
The star is just a part of the DC logo, and since this hoody is just a logo hoody they call it the star hoody, or to be more accurate the "star pullover hooded sweatshirt".
Hey Max, this is a hard one to answer because everyone is so different in terms of temperature control and comfort when they are touring (or doing any other cold weather aerobic activity).
I am personally a big fan of Arcteryx products; but its all about the right fit, weight, material, performance and of course, style for you individually.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of options but I think a few other specific alternatives you might look at are:
Black Diamond CoEfficient Fleece Hooded Jacket
Marmot Up Track Softshell Jacket
Dynafit Mercury Softshell Jacket
Norrona Lyngen Warm2Flex Fleece Jacket
Yes, it is very helmet friendly. In fact, one of the knocks on this jacket has been that it doesn't have a volume control cinching system. It has drawcords to pull the face opening tight, but no rear adjustment to tighten up the interior fit. So, if you are trying to use the hood with no helmet it can be a little like having a grocery sack on your head.
It works. The idea is that it has a very specific formula that optimizes the blend of glucose, sucrose and sodium to maximize the body's absorption of the fluid so you stay hydrated.
It also tastes pretty good, which is probably why Peter Sagan likes it.
