Smart ideas again, no more pins. No more climbing wires on your board.

So I'm guessing the Edison only needs the 3 inserts for the touring bracket now, that makes DIY a very good option.

Hard to tell from the pics, but are they still sliding onto pucks?

They look sweet. A couple of observations:

1. Looks like Burton has adopted EST for their Splits, that's cool!
2. The interface doesn't use pucks, it's an evolution of the Edison that interfaces with EST. Hoping there is a mount that works for factory splits and DIY and solids.
3. With the climbing wires attached to the binder, there is no need for a Voile product on the board, aside from the hooks. If they made clips and hooks then you could have an entire Spark R&D setup.
4. The Edison also had that front toe release mechanism, I wonder how it moves the pin into place to hold it to the touring bracket?

The future of Splitboarding looks bright!

I played around with it a bit and it does use voile pucks. Noticed a bit of play shifting the locked binding in ride mode fore and aft. Could be an easy fix but something I noticed.

Aside from that it looks pretty easy and lightweight. Seems like a solid binder option.

Looks amazing. Super impressed with Will's designs and innovation.

Still build around voile pucks. Just not pins.

EST tracks. Bout time, I only told JG that 5,6, or 7 years ago. :)

Re the touring brackets. It looks like the pins on the bindings might interface into the bracket from the inside.

:thatrocks:

Can't wait to check all the new gear out next week!

Tex, if you're coming up for the donner split party you're welcome to demo my Spliff (split version of the nug).

Looks like two pieces of hardware between the bindings. Do the heels lock?
