Simplify, reduce weight, and increase performance of your Voile splitboard with the new Voile Light Rail splitboard binding. The Light Rail integrates the Slider Track and Strap Binding into a lightweight, low profile, but rigid splitboard binding.
The lightweight, laser cut 6061-T6 aluminum base plate is designed to eliminate ice build-up and the extended vertical sides improve stability and performance. A fully adjustable heel cup allows the high back to reach negative angles for more comfortable touring and a longer stride. The aluminum rails are CNC machined from solid 7075-T6 bar stock and anodized for amazing durability.
It couldn’t be easier to transform your stance from tour mode into a perfect forward lean with the all-new Ride-N-Stride Highback. Tilting the Highback forward and pressing on the bottom half of the lean block secures it over the heel cup, locking it into the forward angle of your choosing. When you’re back on the skin track, simply pressing on the upper portion of the lean block allows you to sink the Highback for an additional <25° of movement.
I’ve been riding and climbing on these for about five or six years and they are rock solid and responsive. I didn’t like the feel of the straps so I frankensteined them with much softer Burton straps. I believe the newer versions have better straps.

Older version needed improvement
I have the older version of the light rail bindings. It appears that the issues I had have been addressed.
The biggest issue I had is that after a couple of seasons of hard use, the pivot holes stretched and have completed distorted. The bushings in the newer version should take care of that.
The ankle straps didn’t fare well either, the vinyl surface cracked and fell off leaving the rough textile. They are now covered with duct tape.
That said, they are significantly lighter than mounting a third party binding on sliders and with some creativity third party straps can be used to replace the stock ones when they become worn.
Yes, the new models have definitely improved and addressed old issues. Also you can buy new Voile ankle and toe straps on our website.
