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.

this sentence makes no sense. maybe I'm not awake yet. This is pretty confusing.


Yeah, I was thinking the same thing


It's the ALUMINUM PINS that can get screwed up by the steel brackets. The LT BRACKETS won't get screwed up by the steel pins.

Emphasis for clarity, not snarky-ness. :thumpsup:

I agree "fully compatible" but you cant use them? I dont think thats compatible.


Come on guys, it's really not that hard and I'm a friggin' foreigner :lol: :lol: To much :guinness: ? Drink some coffee and reread Wills post (and mine too while we're at it) and you will understand! :wink: :wink:

The difference between the Fuse (also Ignition II) and Blaze pins is in how they are bent. The Fuse and Ignition IIs are bent at pretty much a 90 degree angle whereas the Blaze has a little jog in the bend. Terrible description, perhaps photos will help:

Image
Spark R & D Fuse (above) *note how the pin has the round bend that goes out and then comes back inward toward the binder.

Image
Spark R & D Blaze (above) *note the bend is an even 90 degrees w/o bending back inward.

I have the LT Touring Bracket installed on my Blaze setup and toured with them this weekend. Skinned 9.5 miles / 5k vert so far. Haven't formed enough opinion to go into detail yet.

So has anyone gotten and used the new touring bracket yet? If so, is there a significant difference from the voile brackets (i.e. are they worth the $78)?

The LT-Pin touring brackets are SWEEEEEEET. Super light and tour nicely. I have about the same amount of vert on mine as samh and I absolutely dig them. Definitely worth the money, and they look cool too (not that that matters). Cannot say enough about the Blaze bindings either. Wish I would have gone soft a while back. :disco:

I got a pair of the LT pins last season. They are great. Way lighter and the pins make a more secure connection. I highly recommend them.

Any issues using the LT pins with touring risers?

I've got big hooves!! :) I have good clearance on the voile setup with their risers.

Hi All,

I've finally made the jump to Burner LT's.

I've looked around, but I wasn't able to find the answer-

I am supposed to tuck the bent end of the pin inside my toe strap?
