I have no idea, BUT round about last March a photo was posted on this forum for about 12 hours before it, and the thread it was in vanished without a word....
Anyways, the picture showed some pretty bad ass machining to the fuse, which based on the photo probably shaved about 10-15% off the weight. The base plate was machined 'swiss cheese' like the Voile baseplate, but it was clearly a Fuse base.
Also in the pic was a touring bracket machined out of an aluminum block, and all the parts in the photo were crazy anodized purple, orange, etc... Very boutique BMX/MTB looking stuff....

So who knows :scratch:

I heard a rumor about the newer lighter touring bracket... That would be cool...

The fuses would probably be worth it if you get get them. I guess it just depends on what you have now. Anything new that comes out will probably take 6 months to land on your door step.

If you are rockin first gen Sparks, probably worth waiting, if you are still using the voile plate, couldn't hurt to get fuses.

So I emailed Spark about getting some bindings this fall to our local dealer, and I asked if they were coming in with any new designs or if I should be expecting the fuse's, and here was the response I got from the Sales Department:

Stay tuned ... :) I think you'll be pleasantly surprised ...

So I think there will be something new coming through this fall, and I'll be on them!!! :bananas: I'd have to say it will compliment my Zephyr split very well.

Anyone have any beta or ideas what the modifications will be? Looking forward to it. And I know, Karokaram is new and awesome, and all that stuff, but Spark is where its at for me.

Is it snowing yet?

Spark moved into a larger space so they should be able to ramp up production this year which is good news. Those pictures that were posted for a short period of time were from the owner of Twenty6 (who shares a space with Spark) and who machined his Fuse's down to almost nothing. I'd be stoked if Spark can machine more material off their binders while keeping the strength necessary for them to be performers and have a long lifespan.

Hey guys....

http://www.shopatron.com/products/produ ... .0.0.0.0.0?

Something we should know about? New straps (toe & heel) for sure. And as far as I'm aware, that isn't a Bent Metal highback either.
