Product Info

A true touring binding for dawn-to-dusk or overnight objectives, the Spark R&D Arc Splitboard Bindings are the lightest strap splitboard bindings in the world, due in part to the new for 17/18 ultra thin Pillow Line straps. Every feature is paired down to its simplest, lightest form, including the T1 Touring System, which means no more fumbling with pins in sub-zero temps and thick gloves. Instead, a simple slide and click keeps your bindings locked in tour mode, while the Forward Lean Adjuster gives you a whopping -13° for skinning. Not that this binding ignores the descent. The Rip 'N' Flip Highback has glass fiber content to add strength and responsiveness with a moderate flex. The Spark R&D Splitboard Bindings are ideal for the powhunter not afraid to go the extra mile.
