The “explore” model could be a contender for modification. A bit heavier then the TLT 6 but has a similar touring mechanism. http://communitytouringclub.com/nouveautes-salomon-2016/ January 28, 2015 at 3:52 pm #779763 enjoy the ride 22 Posts We have just finished our first impression splitboard test of some of the 15-16 splitboard gear.

Nice. Forward leeeeeaaannnnnnnn. February 1, 2015 at 1:29 am #779958 Cbalke 237 Posts The R&D lab at ThirtyTwo has worked side-by-side with Jeremy Jones to deliver a boot that fits exactly what he needs while spending weeks on end in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. Designed with a mountaineer in mind, the new Jeremy Jones pro model features a waterproof zip-up cover to prevent your laces from freezing, a Vibram sole for withstanding the rigors of crampons and a BOA-enabled rear flap to increase your range of motion while splitboarding. It is also celebrating 20 years of snowboarding with its new team movie, 2032, due this fall.- From Snowboardmag February 1, 2015 at 5:40 am #779959 permnation 303 Posts Sparks stuff is looking nice! I heard the heel-lock has been changed for next year. The new forward lean mech looks very user-friendly. Being a 32 fan, it’s nice to see them re-introduce the Ultralight this season, and the Jones model for next season looks promising. The Keen-style rubber toe is cool. The boot has some great features, but 4 different closure styles…zipper, big laces, inner laces, and Boa. That just seems like too much shit going on or that could break. What did the splitboarder say when he ran out of weed? Bro, my boots are broken. @cbalke Did you get to play around with or try on the Jones boot? What’s the price? February 1, 2015 at 6:41 am #779961 Snurfer 1448 Posts New spark looks great, had little doubt they’d get the lean adjust sorted. Most intriguing thing about the Jones boot is the rear release (walk mode). Having done a fair amount of tinkering to mod the current Spark lean adjuster it became clear my soft boots were the impediment to stride length, not the toe interface. As someone who has little interest in icy sidehilling, or mountaineering (tech toe setup) this is just what I’ve been waiting for, but I have to agree with permnation, all the other fiddly shit is overkill. Powslash the Euphoria looks to remains the same as 14/15, the other deck is a collab with Smith.

A big, or longer, step forward. I wonder if there will be others? Fun to see all the pow shapes too. @sun_rocket February 1, 2015 at 8:21 am #779964 BGnight 1382 Posts Inner boa is the shit. I wish Fitwell’s had inner boa. I’m looking to move away from K2 T1’s as my resort boot. I’ll definitely give the 32’s a look. And they’d be good for most backcountry stuff and I can keep my Fitwells on the shelf except when I need something more gnarly. Curious how stiff the sole and toe box is (for kicking steps and booting all day up volcanos). That’s the most important part. I have my doubts they got either right looking at the boot. I could care less about the walk mode. Funny how much you guys geek out on your stride. You’d think you needed to do lunges to get anywhere 😀 Nothing inspiring in the board category yet except maybe that Nitro.

If I get more info I’ll pass it along.

The Nitro 183 ST looks wicked. Wondering what base profile they went with. So many powder shapes…so little powders.

The Magneto and Afterburner models will be discontinued and replaced by two models with upgraded Tesla baseplates. There is an upgraded heel locker for the new base plate. The Rip-N-Flip highbacks are backwards compatible allowing them to be used with older spark bindings. Next year Spark is also rolling out 2 women’s specific binding models.

Should be interesting as you’ll actually be able to rideit on hardpack. Venture also came out with a carbon Zelix split. Light and snappy! Those Jones boots are pretty cool, walk mode is pretty nice. Karakoram’s are looking really nice with their new interface. Hoping to check that out at the on snow this week.
