    and how do you connect to the verts? assume bolt on a Voile interface, slide on bindings and lock down with the LT/split pin?

    The verts have pucks and the bindigs slide right on em…The board would be on yer back, but lighter with no bindings….it would be really cool if there was some sort of boot and binding deal…maybe a preorder special..hint hint wink wink

    so the heal is fixed?

    I assume if you can fit dynafit then you could fit with Kbindings (using a std 3 hole pattern)?

    I need new boots this year too. I wish there was more than a short paragraph of info on there though.

    It would be really sweet if spark (or anyone else) sold the older blazes for a discounted prices *cough* now that they have the new and improved ones for sale

    The third strap option is awesome. Added lateral stability for skinning and skiing out.
    Pretty excited about the tail clips too.

    The Verts option is awesome but I feel that I like the regular binding option for what I use them for. Mainly because I can take a split or a solid board. If you haven’t tried the Verts though, you are definitely missing out. Those things are the shit, and they can fit inside my pack. Great for stuff the is too steep for a splitboard.

    Nice work on the new innovations this year! Props again to Will and everyone at Sparks.

    Pretty much, just like attaching to your board for ride mode. Your heel is fixed, which is a good thing. Verts are for steep terrain that you cannot split up. They rock.

    They had the small leftovers on sale for an excellent discounted price over the summer – scored some for my wife. Give them a call if you’re a small. As far as retailers old inventory, I find it much better to negoitate in person at the shop

    Agreed on all points. But at $20 the strappy strap is a bit overpriced just to have a graphic on it. You can create more than a couple for the same price with some velcro/nylon and a minute on a sewing machine. I think I’ll make my own.

    I will definitely be getting some tail clips – also will make a great Xmas gift for my brother.

    Verts are awesome for stomping up the steeps in deep snow.

    I have always used a BD or Voile ski strap, cost about $5.

    That inventory is probably long since gone from the warehouse, but you might be able to find some by calling some shops.

    Yeah, I have used Voile straps for the same thing but they stretch. I don’t think that $20 is to outrageous. Booster straps are almost $30 for about the same thing. Sure, I could probably go to the hardware store and make one myself for a few bucks less, but is it worth the time?

    Try the Backcountry in Truckee. I see them putting inventory on eBay all the time, but every time I go in there (1-2x/yr) they are willing to deal to move product.

    Agreed they do stretch a bit, but I feel it’s pretty minimal if you get them tight enough initially. Another option I have used is a simple velcro strap from REI, cost is even cheaper and no worries about stretch. Cheers
