    Where do you purchase new bushings?

  • chronicracing replied to the topic Bushings in the forum Spark R&D 4 hours, 35 minutes ago

    If you’ve been touring w/ out bushings, time for new brackets.

    Spark’s customer service has been outstanding since the beginning.

    As the bushing wears, it deforms and eventually falls out. I carry extra bushings, easy to press in. Thank you Spark’s!

    I tour @ 230lbs – 330lbs+, bushings last me roughly 70 days. I replace sets, once/twice a season.

    Yes, I’ve experienced this on two sets of touring brackets and in both cases Spark sent me new touring brackets as warranty replacements.

  • I have the 163cm and it works great for all conditions. I’m 170lbs and 5’10. Floats nicely in the pow, and still is nimble enough for tight jump turns on steep firm slopes on corn days…..

    Has anyone had the brass (or whatever metal) bushings on the touring brackets fall out? This is the bushing on the toe piece touring brackets mounted to the board that the pins on the binding slide into. All four bushing fell out on my bindings after 2 seasons, and the bindings flop around when in touring mode since then. A quick email to Spark RD…[Read more]

  • Hey Ladies (and smaller men),

    Just wondered what you used for overnight packs? I love my day pack (Ortovox Ascent) but need something bigger for those hut trips!
    I had gotten a deal on an Osprey Kode 42 secondhand and it really is a great pack, although it is too wide for my narrow shoulders and causes considerable collarbone pain (weight is not…[Read more]

    Sounds like the 163

  • Real popular in these parts, small batch , craft snowboards. The progression is pretty incredible, they get better and more innovative each year.

    I have an asymmetric fish which rides incredible well and know many riders that absolutely love their SnoPlank boards.

    I have an older 158 model A(?) split that is way too small for me if you’re in t…[Read more]

  • Federico replied to the topic Amplid Milligram in the forum Splitboards 5 days, 23 hours ago

    Hi there,
    Need an help regarding sizing of the milligram. Currently, my split is a 159 Rossi XV and really like its stiffness and performance. But it is time to change, and as I recently switched to hardboots (backlands+Dyno DH) I would like to go for a light split too.

    I am 176 x 73 kg. The 158 sounds short for what I like in the backcountry, as…[Read more]

  • Who has experience with Snoplanks? I’m looking for general opinions of how the designs perform, quality, etc. Specifically the Spindrift Split, but also the Model A Split.
    Thanks much!

    I still love my Dynos. However, if I were buying a completely new setup I’d probably buy the phantoms. It’s more of a complete package. That being said, my touring gear is now collecting dust here in sunny SoCal. I miss naturally snow covered mountains.

  • VtVolk replied to the topic Dyno or Phantom? in the forum Bindings 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Just chiming in on the Spark Dynos. I have probably 200+ days on my original set and I use them riding the lifts as well. Bomber. I require nothing more.

  • Hey all,
    Looking for at least one partner to tour with. I’m in Washington, out on the Olympic peninsula, open to all areas. My ninth season, got two AIARE courses, etc. Interested in longer mountaineering tours, as well as short fun day tours. Limited glacier travel experience, decently well versed trad climber. Reach out if you’d like to meet up…[Read more]

  • Hey man, still looking for partners for the PNW? Looking to get out a lot this winter. Reach out if you are! Would be cool to get out and hike some lines before the snow falls to check them out. I’ve been out hiking in the Olympic peninsula. Good stuff.

    Let me know!
    Chris

    @Trygve: After 4 seasons and more than 200,000m of vertical with my phantom split-tech system, I can no longer compare. I sold my soft boot setup 4 years ago. My occasional days in a ski resort are also fun as hell. Embrace change; jump ship.
