Has anyone tried out the Dual height climbing heels with the New Touring risers together yet?

What kind of difference are you feeling , if any?

I was wondering what you think?

Thanks

I have them... The dual height rocks! I've been running this setup for years though, was using G3's before the Voile version... As far as the touring risers go, the only difference I notice is that I don't boot-out now with my toes, which has always been a problem when I switched to Sparks... Well worth it.. IMO

Curious what size boot you are using? I am not rocking the dual height heels, just the tall bars. Have you used Chomps with them?

I drilled the riser back of the voile measurement to clear the red plastic G3 piece (I thought about dremeling it but didn't). They fit perfect and the high bar holds the crampon in place. I also got some rubber tubing for the bars. $16 for the G3's From BC.com, Freeby spacer from Voile (Thank You! :thumpsup: ) for the 2 x M4 t-nuts and $2 of clear tubing from Ace.

^^^do you have the risers on the touring bracket also? if so, how do your Chomps sit flush on the top of the board, aren't they 'hovering' at the height of the riser?
