Description

Snowboard bindings use the same 4×4 binding insert pattern as high quality, wood core skiboards but provide no lateral support, which is critical for skiboarding. What this kit does is convert your snowboard bindings into soft boot skiboard bindings that will work with any 4×4 insert equipped skiboards. You simply need to screw the provided Saavi wings onto your binding’s highback with the supplied machine screws. As long as the highback has openings in it, you are good to go without any drilling necessary, just a Phillips screw driver is required. After attaching the wings to the highback you just attach the snowboard binding and supplied RVL8 “Missouri” riser into the inserts in your 4×4 skiboards and you are ready to ride! No home tinkering or mechanical work required. If your highback has no openings, or if the opening is not large enough, you will need to drill two small 5/16″ holes in each highback to allow the attachment of the wings. Here is a video showing how to attach the Saavi Hooks to snowboard bindings without highback openings.  

RVL8 Softboot Binding Upgrade Kit Installed

The screw-on Saavi wings and RVL8 ratchet straps are bomber in quality and come with a 1 year warranty. The RVL8 “Missouri” riser is a thing of simple lightweight beauty that provides a firm connection between board and binding. With the proper base binding and moderately stiff snowboard boots the whole set up will allow aggressive carving of skiboards with soft snowboard boots.

Features:

  • Saavi snowboard binding wings (1 pair included)
  • RVL8 large, wide, padded, comfortable,3rd ratchet straps (1 pair included, installed to the wings)
  • RVL8 custom, 100% UHMW “Missouri” risers (1 pair included, with hardware)
  • Stainless steel mounting hardware (8 screws)
  • 1 year warranty

This conversion kit has been extensively tested by RVL8 staff and customers with a variety of snowboard bindings with great results. Note: how well the binding performs after conversion does depend on the stiffness of the binding so we do recommend using a stiff base binding with an aluminum heel cup.

    I noticed that Greco has added the long
    awaited RVL8 Snowboard binding conversion
    kit to the store today.

    I have had a lot of experience testing and
    developing this kit and I think it is really
    something the skiboard market has sorely
    needed and kudos to Greco for bringing it to
    market . What this kit allows is for someone
    to convert essentially any snowboard binding
    into a soft boot skiboard binding that will allow
    that binding to be used on any 4×4 insert
    equipped skiboard with standard soft
    snowboard boots. The user simply needs to
    bolt the wings onto the highback of any
    snowboard binding with the supplied machine
    screws. As long as the highback has
    openings in it , you are good to go without
    any drilling necessary and just a phillips
    screw driver . The wings have a pre attached
    rachet strap already supplied . After attaching
    the wings to the highback you just attach the
    snowboard binding with the supplied screws
    through the holes in the riser into the inserts
    in the skiboard and you are ready to ride ! No
    home tinkering or mechanical work required .
    Just a screwdriver . If your highback has no
    openings and you have the rare snowboard
    binding with a completely solid highback then
    you will need to drill two small 1/4 inch holes
    to allow the attachment of the wing .
    I have used this conversion kit with a variety
    of snowboard bindings and I have supplied a
    previous post with details about the best
    snowboard bindings to select .

    How well the binding performs after
    conversion does depend on the selection of a
    proper base binding so I do recommend the
    user consider carefully which snowboard
    binding to convert.
    I also recommend for best performance a
    relatively stiff snowboard boot , 3/5 or 6/10 or
    above stiffness on snowboard stiffness rating
    scales.
    The bolt on wings and rachet straps are
    bomber in quality and durability . and stay on
    rigidily despite crashes and extensive use .
    The riser is a thing of simple lightweight
    beauty that provides a firm connection
    between board and binding . With the proper
    base binding and proper moderately stiff to
    stiff snowboard binding the whole set up will
    be a high performance skiboard binding
    allowing aggressive carving of skiboards with
    snowboard boots .
    Ps . Greco does supply the lightweight
    "Missouri" riser designed by Bill here on the
    forum by itself as well.
    If you have a double winged binding such as
    some of the cool Technine double scrub hook
    bindings , you can then just buy the riser
    alone and a pair of snowboard rachet straps
    and drill and attach the straps to the wings of
    the binding yourself to create a similar set up
    at a lower cost .
