If yes, THAT would be a great news :rock: March 3, 2013 at 4:48 pm #665299 philip.ak 679 Posts Yes, there will be conversion kits. I have not seen a price. March 4, 2013 at 8:23 pm #665300 klo8 12 Posts Hmm, cool. But, it surely won’t cheap, since the conversion kit should include a whole new baseplate (or is there any way of turning old Blaze plate into Magneto one?)

Speaking of which, it’s interesting how many features these new bindings have (and Karakoram and Edison) that were present in some form or another in the original ill-fated Burton interface system. Heel lift was integrated into the baseplate, and it worked great with their crampons. No pins. Camming action to lock both board halves together. Pretty easy stance angle adjustment without changing stance width. It was a little too early for its time though (meaning tons of issues in the field)… EXACTLY! It’s nice to see that someone (Will) finally appreciates the great ideas that have been incorporated into the Burton S-Series system, and transforms them into a new binding system. Integrated heel lifters that push the crampons into the snow in each setting, on-the-fly easy to install crampons, pinless system. Those are the things I love about the Burton system. How tight and rigid the Burton’s clamp system holds the two board halves together in ride mode is still not overcome by any of today’s systems. :doobie: BTW: Has anyone noticed that Sabretooth – the Tesla crampons will be Dynafit compatible? 😉 March 6, 2013 at 4:00 am #665303 provotrout 130 Posts @fade wrote: BTW: Has anyone noticed that Sabretooth – the Tesla crampons will be Dynafit compatible? 😉 Interesting point, from the video I watched that seems likely. You know that for sure? Kind of a tangent, I’m guessing the crampons are a must have on the volcanoes and possibly the coastals. Does that bear out with the people on here? March 6, 2013 at 7:16 am #665304 JAndersB 4 Posts Spark informed that max stance angle is appr 43 degrees with Burton channels.

I don’t know that for sure, but if you look the Spark R&D 2013/14 catalog, the mounting pivot on the Sabretooth looks exactly the same as on a Dynafit crampon. And as Will is making Dynafit toe piece adapters and sells Dynafit toe pieces for splitboards, I assume that when he makes something new, he makes it useful and versatile applicable. 😉 March 6, 2013 at 6:34 pm #665306 philip.ak 679 Posts I emailed Will @ Spark and he said the conversion kits will be $250 for the Magneto (milled out baseplate ala Blaze) and $270 for the Afterburner (solid baseplate ala Burner). You will be getting touring brackets, heel risers and such with the kit. Still not cheap. Not sure why the one with the added milling will cost less than the solid plate.

And the whole set? 500? 600 Eur? March 31, 2013 at 7:34 pm #665309 Reindeer mtn 64 Posts Hey don’t know if this has already been shared? Legend Dave Downing using the Burton with Spark Magneto bindings shredding some pow: April 17, 2013 at 10:18 am #665310 enjoy the ride 22 Posts I just checked the thread superficially, but I want to give an anser to the question with the angle. With the new Burton system combined with the Spark Tesla you have a maximum angle of 30 degree. If you want to see how is the first setup of the system, you can do it here: http://www.splitboarding.eu/en/splitboard-news/first-impression-freebird-2014-spark-rd-magneto-binding July 18, 2013 at 9:23 pm #665311 tiltedworld 406 Posts Don’t know why I didn’t see this before, apologize if it is already posted. www.vimeo.com/60717962 July 19, 2013 at 7:01 pm #665312 TEX 2486 Posts What kind of poles is Dave Downing using in that Video? I need a set of those July 19, 2013 at 9:20 pm #665313 wjb 163 Posts The BD compactors? I had a set when we were at Greenstone earlier this year. I am mostly happy with them. The button on one jammed up and wouldn’t deploy without a lot of fiddling. BD replaced it so we will see. I got them cheap on the Clymb and they were way better than my old ones.
