    • 1. Splitboards
    • 2. Technical issuesThe actual bindings are old-fashionnedand not practical • There are many small parts, specially the pins that you have to lock/delock for the change of the position. • There´re existing solutions that are more efficient (faster procedure of assembly, handier parts) • With icy conditions you get snow in every part of the actual bindings wich must be cleaned.
    • 3. Technical issuesThe gloves are big and not handy • The pin (from the bindings), the hooks, and the lock of the skins are really unconfortable to handle with the gloves. • “...I freeze my fingers every time I have to split the board...” - (Michele from LaGlisse) • Mobile communication is impossible with gloves.
    • 4. Technical issuesThe PROs are not happy with their boards • “The screws of the hooks shoudn´t get to the other side” • “You can not adjust the bindings as you want” • “The radius should be between 15º-18º” • “The board is to heavy specially when you have to carry uphill” - (Pietro Lamiani)
    • 5. Technical issuesThe skin can´t be attached when theboard is not clean • The board must be dry • The skins must be warm • “In bad wheather it´s impossible to clean the board” (Michele from LaGlisse)
    • 6. EducationIf you don´t have the right preparationyou can´t practice this sport • “You have to be aware of the avalanches, once you get in it´s impossible to get out” - (Michele/Pietro) • Read and obey all posted signs on the mountains, they are there for a purpose. • Complete and certified gear (apparel, splitboard, helmets, boots, etc) • Safety equipment in case of emergency (shovel, gps, first aid kit, etc)
    • 7. Feelings in matterSplitboard is not made for womenintermediate• Is too extreme for just an intermediate• The hole procedure is too hard (climbing, split-attach)• “Women are always more cautious” - (Michele from LaGlisse)• Less physical strenght
    • 8. Design Challenges
    • 9. How to introduce splitboard into women intermediate• Develop a faster procedure on assambly• Appeal to women in design and functionality• Increase safety• Make handier parts
