There's the new Austin Hair pro model and the 2012 Franchise that have already been posted on here, as well as Lyman's final Slingshot pro model, but I haven't personally spotted any.

Heyyy, whatchu tryna' say?

Just kidding. I actually don't like those 2012 graphics as much as my 2011, which looks sick, but I'll wait until I get a good picture of it.

Looking back at the 2011 thread it was around the last week of July that marketing material started coming out. I think the Ronix brochure download link popped up on August 2nd. Not sure about the Slingshot stuff.

What size foot do you have and what condition RAD's are you looking for. I have a pair and I'm not a huge fan of them. They are size 10, have been used for about 2.5 months, and are dyed black. I was planning on just eating the cost but I'd be happy to help you out. Shoot me a message if you want.

2012 systems will have a new toe cap and lockable highback.
Old    Chris (cjh1669)      Join Date: Apr 2005       07-21-2011, 11:32 AM Reply   
Tahts good news, the toe strap on the current one and the high back not being locked up is a serious pain
Old    Jason (jason95gt)      Join Date: May 2006       07-21-2011, 11:54 AM Reply   
I feel that the toe cap is a step back as being right on top of your feet makes a major pressure point. I thought they were going to the burton over the toe cap.
Old    Chris (cjh1669)      Join Date: Apr 2005       07-21-2011, 11:58 AM Reply   
The big problem I have with them is something the toe cap can fix. The harder falls I take cause the high back to slip back and the toe strap to go under my boot. It's a big pain get it back in the water. Also the ladders on these things break loose too easy, I came completely out of the binding last night on a wreck
Old    np3 (ponder86)      Join Date: Mar 2008       07-21-2011, 1:07 PM Reply   
I have came out of them numerous times. I'm glad they actually release though, otherwise some of the falls would have hurt a lot more.

I'm pretty sure that is what is meant by "toe cap". Right now it would be called a "toe strap", simply going over the top of the food, while a "toe cap" implies over the front of the toe as well, pushing down and back. Burton isnt the only company doing that.

Don't see toe caps though. I'm thinking I'm going to switch to burton EST bidings from system. Much better all around

Its happened a few times before, Alliance had a video of someone riding a Response in the snow, and there have been a couple threads on it, one of them fairly recently.

The witness will remain unchanged...only difference is it is not benny g's pro model anymore. He is not considered one of their global team riders anymore...which I think is stupid. Pros like him and lyman that have been around and are Pretty much freeriding legends shouldnt be disrespected like that. I know times are tough and keeping the top contest riders is a high priority but taking a name off a board that he helped shape and design and promote is silly to me. Wouldnt be surprised to see him on a humanoid board soon.

Did you read the article he wrote in latest alliance wake mag on behalf of Lyman? there was some criticism and near finger pointing type tones in there. GREAT read. definitely felt closer to Lyman, especially when it came to feeling like a out-cast because of a no tolerance to partying thing. Ive missed out on some opportunities to find thirds or be a third because i either shied away or because i was not included because of this kind of thing.

......So you sell a bunch of boards through being a top rider/ coach (and a great guy) have the best Pete/ Ole 7/ Method in the industry- and you get your name taken off the board you helped design. That at best is insulting

Here's a shot of Harley's bindings. I like how the teeth are hidden under the plate. Keeps it clean looking.



There is also a few more shots of the B-Side and a Harley's deck on wake2wake.ca
