That is insanely light! And also not correct. We've dropped Mtn Gear a note about the misprint. We'll have a big release in the near future on the Blaze, in the meantime the actual weight is 3.75 lb (1730g) per pair, 1/2 lb (230 g) savings over the Fuse!

We'll be in touch soon guys, thanks for the stoke!

I was gonna, ask where did the 2lb weight savings come from, no need now. I'm guessing that 1/2lb comes from using an in house highback and straps. And someone mentioned titanium somewhere. Any difference's in the baseplates/heelcup department? ie. incompatibility with Bent Metal highbacks/ankle straps?

Thanks for the correction Will, thought that you were welding them from Helium or performing some sort of voodoo. :scratch: I was freaking out all morning. 3.75lbs is still very light, and I know still 110g lighter then the competition too! Keep up the good work, excited to get on the Blaze's this winter. Send them to Backcountry Experience in Durango ASAP!

i was told the straps and highbacks are custom and the baseplates are likely not compatible with others.

Will,

What does the Highback connection points with the heel loop look like this year? Is it a different and improved design to help alleviate boot wear that happens with the Fuse's?

Thanks!
