is there an alternative to the voille pucks that will drop the fuse binding 2mm so that it sits flush on the board? my guess is that this would add to the stability. currently there is a 2mm gap.

Mine is the same, looks like the 2mm is the gasket. might just try it without.

BTW got the Storm R delivered yesterday just as snow started falling and it kept on snowing trough the night, nice omen, ha?

Rode it inbounds today with fuse, and it just :rock: s! Even on bumpy parts I did not feel like riding a split at all. I have no words for how it performed in the deep stuff!!! The old Burton splitty is hereby very much retired....

dont make a big mistake .....
you need a littel gap - and rounded all corners near the deck of the slider bindings .
when you jump and had a hard landing can kill the slider corner your upperbelt.

I just got my Fuse Bindings in today and can't wait to try them out, however I did notice that there is a tiny gap between the base of binding and board topsheet when in ride mode, about 2 mm, as described in earlier post. I also was under the impression that these bindings should sit flush on the board and that this was a benefit.
I did not really understand the explanation as to why the gap is necessary. If all I have to do is to take out the gaskets so that the binding will sit flush then shouldn't I do it?
Maybe Will could comment on this and let us know what the best way to go about it is, or if the tiny gap is normal.
:thatrocks: :thatrocks:

Also I should mention that I spoke to Lib Tech today, and they are 100% going to be making a Travis Rice factory splitboard for the 2010-2011 season, sounds as though it will only be in one size though, 164, I think it is awesome that LIB TECH will be adding an awesome offering to the splitboard world! I was surprised that it was not already news on this splitboard cite

Lots of people have heard lots of things about a lot of things related to splitboarding. Until there's an official announcement most people refrain from posting. Now, if we start seeing protos in the backcountry and questions go unanswered--some people get a little pissy.

Maybe I'm missing something and maybe Will can comment, but wouldn't the baseplate scratch the sh!% out of the topsheet if it actually sat "flush" with the board? There needs to be a small gap to prevent this, I think.

Hey guys,
Yup, the gap is on purpose to allow the binders to go on and off without scratching the board. It also allows the board to flex normally. When you lean toward the tip or tail of the board the bindings touch down on the topsheet for additional support.

R&D at it's finest.

I just spouted off about it needing to sit flush. I don't know shit.

Nice quote Eco. :D
