Product Info

Demanding lines demand a lot from your bindings, and the Spark R&D Surge Splitboard Bindings provide the precision and edge control you need for the most challenging terrain. A stiffer version of the Rip 'N' Flip Highbacks, paired with new Pillow Line Straps to lock you in, make the Surge the right choice for aggressive riding. It still features all of Spark's tricks for touring, including the Whammy Bar for quick heel height adjustment, the Tesla T1 System for a pin-free transition (no more fumbling, frozen fingers), and the tool-less Forward Lean Adjuster for customizable lean and improved range of motion in the skintrack. If you're venturing out to access tough but rewarding terrain, add the uncompromising Spark R&D Surge Splitboard Bindings to your backcountry setup.
