"There's a reason why you never see a Switchblade Iceblade for sale on the used market, people love them and they last forever."
"Not only will a Switchblade extend your winter kiting season in the early part of the winter, before the snow has fallen...but it will also extend your snowkiting season into the Spring as the snow dwindles on land, but the lakes remain solid! But most surprisingly to me, it has proven to be a great asset every time I have stepped onto a lake this winter! Sure, the snow may be bonded to the ice in some places, but it's rarely bonded thoughout the entire riding area....and generally it's spotty throughout. This is why I love my Swithblade! It makes every lake a blast to ride. Faster, safer, and just way more fun! It has completely saved, or greatly improved everyday I've ridden the lakes this year!"

Just has a great session on the switchblade today. Glassy smooth ice and solid winds. What an amazing product. Thanks to Todd Hanson for making this thing happen. - C. Holmes, MN
The Switchblade Kit includes the blade, mounting bracket, fasteners, and sharpener.
Yes. The shorter boards 130-150cm will be more nimble in the turns.
Yes. The Switchblade may be mounted on both sides of your board for heel and toe-side riding.
If you keep your stance width narrow (heels around 2-1/2- 3 '' from the ends of the bracket) you'll get get more control of the blade, and less of the board flexing around it. Wide stance on a regular snowboard is great! but this is a little different.
You definitely want to keep your edge sharp, and your projection to a minimum, so you won't feel like your on a track. It should feel sticky and buttery at the same time.
Absolutely! The Switchblade gives you that much needed additional traction.
