    Streamline your setup.

    Tired of feeling like you're standing on stilts when you're splitboarding? The Voile Light Rail Splitboard Binding is designed to interface directly with your Voile pucks to eliminate the need for the thick baseplate found on standard snowboard bindings. This works with the lightweight aluminum construction to simplify your setup, reduce weight, and improve performance.

    The Light Rail essentially takes the slider piece that you would normally use to attach your standard bindings to, and turns that into the baseplate. This means the Light Rail's baseplate slides directly onto the pucks, putting you closer to the board. It also creates a more stable, secure feel so your splitboard performs more like a solid board.

    The Avalanche Rip Cord release system allows you to undo both straps with the pull of a cord so you can bail out in avalanche rescue situations. A negative forward lean setting allows for longer strides so you can tour across flats more comfortably and efficiently. New straps this season reduce pressure points and redesigned ratchets operate more smoothly. If you like to reach your lines with your own two feet, the Light Rail won't hold you back.

    Super Simple and Fullproof

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    These things are a bit of a labor to set up with the pucks if you don't have a channel board but once they are set up properly these function really well on the up and the down. The pin design might be a little bit slower but for the price id rather save the money and have a simple solid design that wont let me down out there.

    The bindings have more than enough stiffness for inbounds or out of bounds shredding so I just have this on my all in one set up and love it!

    The Binding of Choice

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using a pair of these for two seasons now and loving them. If you've got any questions about these bindings, Voile products or splitboarding gear, feel free to hit me up as building a split set up can be a bit of a pain.



    Ride:

    These ride great. I've ridden them in deep powder and on hard pack and had no issues in regards to performance. Just a little bit of foot fatigue on the longer days.



    Touring:

    These tour real well. I like these a lot more than the plates you can mount your resort bindings on as the mounts for the Light Rail bindings are much more accessible.



    Sizing:

    Feel free to hit me up with sizing questions.



    Components:

    If you're planning on picking up a set of these and want to chat about the other parts that you'll need that are unique to your set up, let me know and I can help build your split set up.



    Hit me up with any questions about these bindings, Voile products or if you'd like some help building your split set up.

    Could be better

      After using these a few times I do wish the binding had a locking system so that you could lock them to your board when you are side stepping. Even tho the bindings are light weight I do wish they were a little more durable. The binding its self is very simple but wish the straps were more like your everyday snowboard binding. Its as if these bindings were made from a template back in the early 90's. They do get the job done, but they could make some improvements to make this binding so much better.

      Alta Snowboard Season

      The best split binding for the price!

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Light Rails are easy to use, bomber in all situations, and very responsive when in ride mode. The toe straps are awesome and really lock you back into the heel cup. The ankle strap is very form fitting and addresses issues that most straps have problems with. The one pull release on the bindings gives the rider in touring or riding mode a quick exit if there is an emergency or if you just need to switch out modes. I have not seen this on any other splitboard binding. Instead of just four ratchets, you have two pull cords which release your toe and ankle strap. Light Rails are a great splitboard binding which costs hundreds less than other brands. Save some bucks for that avy course and go with these bindings.

      The best split binding for the price!

      awesome

      • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I had been riding with normal bindings with the conversion kit for the past 2 seasons. I purchased the light rails this season and am super pumped on them. Having the bindings lower like a regular setup makes a huge difference from being raised up with the conversion kit. Since I already had the pucks setup on my board, it was as easy as sliding the light rails on and I was good to go. It feels great to shed some weight from the setup and also great price point compared to some of the other split bindings out there.

      Just as good

        Who needs the more expensive sparks or karakorams?



        The pin system has been criticized a lot over the years, but for simplicity it can't be beat. The main complaint seems to be that you may lose the pin, but it is attached to the bindings with a nice steel cable. If you're really worried about it, carry an extra one.



        These are less than half the price of karakorams. Sure they are a bit heavier, but so is the extra $400 you're saving.

        Quality binding at a great price!

        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        In regards to split board bindings, I've only ridden these and the Karakoram Split 30's, so this review will be a bit a comparison between the two.



        The Light Rails are a lot cheaper ($275 vs. $599 and up), but keep in mind you'll still have to buy some climbing heels ($36) and pucks ($55) when purchasing the Light Rails. Light Rails don't have the heel lock down feature, which can come in handy if you have some long flats, but where I normally ride there aren't many flats so I never used that feature. The metal base plates on the Karakorams tend to collect more ice, which can make chipping ice away a little more tedious when switching to ride mode. The Light Rails are easier to change from board to board compared to older Karakorams, but the new Karakoram Quiver Connector ($75 and only compatible with Karakoram Prime Bindings) makes switching boards super easy. It's tough to say which binding is better, as they both have their pros and cons. I think it just depends on whether you'll be switching boards frequently, the type of terrain you'll be riding, and your price point.

        What size suitable for Spark Summit Boots size 11 (mondo 29)?
        http://www.backcountry.com/deeluxe-spark-summit-boa-snowboard-boot-mens

        hi, what do I get with the bindings? I mean... do I get also the climbing heels , touring brackets, slider pins, crampons?

        Luca,



        With these you'll get the touring brackets and the pins for tour mode.



        You'll need an interface kit (pucks, climbing heels, etc) which will be sold separately.



        If you have any other splitboarding or Voile questions (or any one else!) send them to me.



        Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

        What size binding would I need for a women's size 10 boot? I usually go men's M in bindings, but I didn't see a size chart for these.

        Best Answer

        I had loaned my size larges to a lady friend with a size 8.5. She had to readjust them but they worked fine. Light Rail bindings have a lot of adjustment.

        The women's light rail in a Medium should work great for you, The different high back won't cut into your calf while skinning AAAAAANND THEY COME IN PURPLE!

        Will Backcountry be getting more sizes of these bindings?

        Also I couldn't find these under backcountry snowboarding or searching for "splitboard bindings" Is that right?

        Hi Reid,

        Yes we will be getting a bunch more sizes in! Hopefully any day now. And you are correct in the classification, it's a little wonky right now- they should be listed under the Splitboarding category! Let me know if you have any further questions, or if you would like me to get you set up with an order when they come in- kweiser@backcountry.com
