I use the Spark Burner bindings, and have the standard Voile heel lifters that come with the DIY kit. Anyone using the Voile dual lifter with Spark Burners? I don't want to spend the $36 to find out that there is something that gets in the way of either the binding, or the Mr Chomps crampons. Thanks. :scratch:

All my boards have dual height Voile risers and all I run is Burners (my wife too). No problems at all, including with Mr Chomps.

You will need to find out which Mr Chomps and dual height riser configurations work better than others. Basically when the low riser is up, put the Mr Chomps above the high riser bar and do not put the Mr Chomps bar up. When in the high riser bar mode, use the Mr Chomps riser also. When both risers are down, put the Mr Chomps on top of the high riser bar and don't use the Mr Chomps riser. All that make sense?

wasnt really sure where to ask this, but I just ordered and installed the dual height wires on my board and they didnt come with the plastic wrapped tips like the stock single wire.. will this wear on the bottom of my bindings? or should I buy some tool rubber dip to coat them??

It won't hurt your bindings. Voile stopped putting the rubber tubing on a while ago. Something about it causing fold-down issues or something.

Why would you do that?

If I use the crampons, I usually use the low riser combined with the Chomps bar up to get maximum bite.
