Has anyone seen Burton's Split bindings from ISPO this week? They look exactly the same as the new Spark Tesla system. I know Burton supply all the rachets etc but have they brought out Spark? Or done a deal with them? Got the FamilyTree logo plastered all over them.
Some great looking kit coming out. Except the 3 section split from Salamon. What's that all about!

This deserves to be in the 14-15 gear thread. Is it just a rebranded Spark? Will there be a Burton Edison or did Jake have his hand in shelving the Edison? Purely speculation, but this news smells similar to my bathroom at seven am....Hawaiian Breeze mahalo

Also interested to hear more on this. From the news I cannot see any changes to Spark?

Why would the B hate on the edison system. A big dissapointment that it got discontinued.

Burton apparently done a colab with Spark next season and also with Voile with a new interface for the channel system. Looks good and can't wait to try next season.
Here's a vid of DD explaining- http://youtu.be/fNiJHh8542Y

Agreed. The puny widths are the main thing keeping me off them. :thumbsdown:
