i'd never disagree with you on that - but it'd be nice if it was an option. maybe offer it as an add on like the Burner upgrade kit.
there is a market for it as evidenced by competing product lines. Karakorum run carbon highbacks and i haven't really read about any of those breaking. i have confidence that Spark would test them until they're proven before releasing them like they seem to be with the Edison. i think they learned from the lesson of the Blaze v1.0 straps...
edit: i should't have said 'the carbon highback' in the first post, i mean A
carbon highback - maybe a stronger one for bc
