NEW GEAR: 2014 BURTON LANDLORD AND SPARK R&D MAGNETO

We are really looking forward to getting our hands on the Burton/Voile/Spark collab project for 2014. The split version of Burton’s new Landlord (they should have named it the Slumlord…) incorporates the Channel system to make setting up and adjusting your stance fast and easy. The new puck mounting system is paired with custom Burton pucks from Voile and utilizes a thin plastic spacer to make setup simple. The Magneto binding from Spark creates a pin-less split setup that looks to significantly decrease changeover time. The simplicity and weight savings of this system look great, but what excites me most is that the Landlord has more taper than any split Burton has ever made.
