Ditch the softboots and step into the stark simplicity of the new Voilé STS Tour Binding for hardboot splitboarders. Powerful and precise, ultralight and uncomplicated, the STS (Splitboard Tech System) Tour Binding is built for the type of icy ascents, sketchy traverses, and spicy lines you call “fun” and and other people call “you did what?!” Splitboard mountaineers, big mountain guides, and local legends all agree—the STS Tour Binding is the future of moving fast in the mountains.

Recently switched from using the Phantom/Spark tech toes, and these work great. They are lightweight and simple in their design. Stepping in take a few tries to figure out the technique, but it's pretty quick and easy once you get it. One HUGE advantage these have over other tech toes is that they take up much less space between the toe and front binding inserts. There is no interference with the front bindings like there can be with other tech toes on boards with tight spacing, and I'm no longer limited in what splitboards I choose.

They just work
Having used the Spark/Phantom tech toe for several seasons I was interested to give the Voile hard boot specific toe piece a try. I used these bindings with the 1st gen Atomic Backland boot and the fit is great with no issues or friction in the system. Compared to the other split tech toe on the market the STS Tour is the lighter by about 15% (250g vs 296g per pair) but it's simple and durable design has yet to fail me. I also appreciate that these bindings feature a notch in the pins to clear snow/ice buildup. Operating these with a ski pole takes some skill but can be done. The springless design has been less prone to difficulty locking in during icy or wet snow conditions. I ski the split a lot found the ability to navigate and control the boards while splitskiing feels about same using both these and the spark/phantom bindings.
