They only announced their release on Friday. Which would explain the lack of info. They look sweet to me. I'm planning on picking up a pair, hopefully from my local shop, failing that, from spark R&D directly.

They're sold at Mountain Gear too. There's a link on the front page of this website.
I just ordered 'em and says they're expected to ship the 24th

They look awesome

So to be clear, if you already have a pair of Spark Blazes, which come with two pins, and then you order these touring brackets, you would then find yourself with two spare pins?

Pretty sure you cannot use the stainless steel pins with these, they come with aluminum pins.

I don't see why you couldn't use the steel pins with the new brackets!? Bindings and brackets will then both have plastic bushings, to prevent wear on pins, which makes it possible to use aluminum and to save some weight.
You can't use the aluminum pins with your old Voile Brackets because they would wear down really fast. Correct me if I'm wrong!
I ordered mine (STOKED!) and I'm planning to throw a backup steel pin in my fix kit.

Hey splitters,
The LT brackets are fully compatible with both our stainless and aluminum pins, but you can only use our aluminum pins with the LT brackets.

Any chance you will offer a bracket/binding combination package?

What I get from this is:
Aluminum Pins -> LT Bracket Only. If you use them on your voile bracket, you'll shred them fast, because they are a lighter material and need to be in the bushing.

Stainless Steel Pin (comes with Blaze / Fuse / Iggys) -> Regular Touring bracket and LT Bracket. If you get the LT Bracket, then you will have spare pins you can use left over from previous.

So basically, you can use either pin with the LT Bracket, Aluminum or Stainless Steel, doesn't matter. Just the Aluminum is lighter, and comes with it.
