|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.|
|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.
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.
