WOW! This baseplate looks like another big step forward in design. I am psyched to hear the details.

Hey guys,
Really glad you're fired up! We've had a bit of supplier issue with some of our parts, but we should be all set mid/late November for complete Fuse binders, and we'll have baseplates only listed on the store probably within the week. See http://www.sparkrandd.com/dealers/ for our European dealers.

:thumpsup:

So is there a waiting list for when the new batch of Fuses become available or is it first come, first served?

Dangerous,
I also had an e-mail into Spark. Received this response awhile back...

Quote:
Hello all ye splitboard enthusiasts!

As all of you know Spark R&D has recently released our new Fuse binding, and as you also know.. there are many of you eagerly awaiting their arrival for purchase. Well, we have em!

One reason they are behind is because we were shipped buckles with red and yellow color accents on them instead of the black we ordered. We are finding most folks are not to worried about it, and if you really can't deal with it, we'll work with you when the black ones show up.

We have shipped nearly seventy (70) Fuse bindings of various sizes to a handful of dealers.. mostly in North America, here they are:

Prior Snowboards in Whistler, BC; the Back Country in Truckee, California; Hoback Sports in Jackson, Wyoming; Tribute Board Shop in Nelson, BC; White Pine Touring in Park City, Utah; Snowboard Connection in Seattle, Washington, and a handful to our local shop, World Boards here in Bozeman.

For those of you not near any of our dealers, we have put a limited quantity in our online store.. 13 Small and 17 Medium:

http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/SparkRD/StoreFront.bok

For those of you in Europe, our orders for Biwakscharte in Germany and 4 Mountains in Switzerland will be shipping on November 23.

Our friend Takumi from Voltage in Japan has a fresh pack of Fuse with his custom graphics.

These folks only have certain sizes and quantities at the moment, but we are cranking out more binders as fast as we can.. be patient, they are coming! If you need more info about these dealers, check out our "Dealers" page on our website:

http://www.sparkrandd.com/dealers/

Thanks to everybody for your support and enthusiasm for our products. We will keep this list updated in the coming weeks as we build and ship more bindings. Think snow!

Spark R&D Sales


So, maybe some of the stores mentioned have a pair?

Cheers,
SC

SC, thanks for the heads up. I emailed Spark yesterday and here's the response I got:

"I have put you on our notification list for when we and our dealers have more bindings. Demand is crazy right now, and we have sold out of everything we have produced, so it may be a while. Thanks,

Chris
Spark R&D Sales"

After I got this message I did some purely visual comparisons to the Voiles thinking they might be a good alternative but I have some real reservations about those binders. I think the Fuses will be well worth the wait...
