We love our channels in the running base. Even so they require some extra efforts when it comes to the actual production and also when it comes to mounting hardware.
Therefore we provide these rubber layers with all our splitboards. Please put them under your touring brackets. This way you're screws will fit and also get loose less likely.
You will find them in your skin package.
And talking about the skins, no, the channels don't cause any hazzle with your climbing skins, just press them into the channels when applying them and everything will be more than fine.
