Guys I have the option to do a run of 20 sets of the Hardboot binding I have designed.
I know there are a few options out there for hardbooters now but this is really the only binding that uses the Voile style puck attachment. This means that most of you already have the hardware, all that's needed is the Dynafit toe for touring and a Spark addaptor kit and your done. This will be viable if I get 20 people to go ahead with the first production run.
They will be only for ride mode, you will need to use Dynafit setup for tour mode.
The cheese greater holes will be replaced with hexagonal holes that allow access to the screws in the Voile pucks. The flat adjustable arms will be cylinders in the production version, a better concept.
You will still need voile pucks, FirstLight Pucks or similar.
For those that still ride Soft and Hardboots this is a great option as it allows you to use your Sparks, light Rail, etc and the FirstLight plates on any board.
Ok the price
We are going to sell these as shown in the above picture for USD $375.00 Delivery Late Nov 2013 There is enough adjustment on each binding to accommodate a large range of boot sizes.
Shipping will be from Australia but I'm sure there will be a distributor in each continent that will help out for some form of compensation. Shipping will be from a local source.
Please let me know if you are interested as I will need to make 20 set initially Any questions please let me know

These look great!!!
Not sure I'll like hard boots for my split and am trying to cobble a test setup on a limited budget to minimize risk. Using my current AT boots and toe pieces, so buying only Dynafit toe piece adapters and some bindings. These bindings are really nice, too bad price is a stretch for my experiment...
