The problem I see with these light rails is right here:

There is still a huge gap between binding and board. The fuse eliminates that gap. It might be that they just put more material there, but with the fuse, if you flex the board at all, which you will if you are riding it, you will have contact which is going to increase your response time from your board. While I am pleased with the further innovation in the sport, it just seems like the Spark R & D design still wins.

So what happens when you pull the "avy rip cord" on one binding but miss the other? Too bad it's not one pull for both bindings. Boo on the rip cord idea.
One could connect the two independent binding cords with a single pull between the feet. I first saw protos set like that years ago...

Just ordered a set of Voile Light Rail bindings, so it'll be my first time on anything like it as I never rode the Spark bindings. Looking forward to it.
Will probably lose the avy cords here in New England, but for Gulmarg or Chile I say why not, I'll give it a go.

Hey there.. kinda neat to see someone who had both the fuse and the Voile system.
BCrider.. what were your thoughts about the fuse? Lots of positive about the Light rail from someone who owns both setups.
BCrider.. what were your thoughts on the Fuse. Did you throw together a write up on them?

The diferent beetwen the fuse and the lightrail - the sliderpin, and the concept of made - fuse milled as one pice- the light rail milled and banding. the price and the oem :wink:

@ehcharley - boards and binding and sliderpucks must have contakt points and gaps. your picture shows the back of the volie l&r. the gap is for the board flex, and noting cut the deck - and stop the flex hard ( the corner can be rounded ) the same storry is the gasket under the sliderpucks. look at the fuse - all corner s are rounded - the contact points to the board is bigger - your stand felling is stronger and your energie is faster on the board, not the boardflex ....a board live from the flex .

I had both bindings - and next time the new Blaze - after this testing we can meet a gain .
