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.

  • Interfaces directly with Voile pucks
  • 6061-T6 aluminum baseplate
  • Padded highback
  • Stiff flex
  • Avalanche Rip Cord binding release
  • Touring mode negative lean
  • New improved straps and ratchets

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.

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


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!

  • 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.



    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    size small mens works perfectly for my girlfriends size 8 boot. she uses it with her 150 burton anti social split board, great combo.

    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.

    Thanks Reid! I almost always end up with dudes' bindings because of my brontosaurus feet, but I'll check the sizing on the women's.... I do like 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-


    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.
