Product Info

The moderate-flexing Spark R&D Arc ST Splitboard Bindings, ideal for freestyle-oriented backcountry riders and lighter bodies, gets a slew of improvements for the new season. The most significant, as indicated by the "ST" in the title, are upgrades almost anwhere there is friction during the skinning action - bindings with the "Smooth Touring" moniker have "overmolded" components with low-friction plastic over an interior metal structure, making them smoother, quieter and more durable. The Asym Rip 'N' Flip highbacks are also re-designed for better fit and functionality, and the pivoting action at the bracket is much improved with "ST" tech added. If your idea of splitboarding is more surf than huck, check out this well thought-out design before you pull the trigger on a binding system.

Product Details

Tour Mode

Improved ST (Smooth Touring) ModeSpark injection molds a proprietary thermoplastic over existing aluminum or steel parts in a process called "overmolding," reducing friction and improving durabillity.

ST (Smooth Touring) Whammy BarsOvermolded plastic blend where the climbing wire meets the baseplate to eliminate stickiness. (Note: not backward compatible with previous Arc, Surge or other older models)

ST Touring BracketsOvermolded with low-friction proprietary plastic over and through the bracket holes in the aluminum base - strong, smoother pivoting, and lasts 4 times longer than the old brass bushing.

Baseplate

CNC Machined BaseplatesCNC machined baseplates remain solid for max stiffness and durability. All of the baseplate side windows have been partially filled to increase durability and strength

Straps

Pillow Line StrapsPillow Line Straps are lightweight, durable, comfortable, waterproof, one-piece molded construction, and made 100% in-house. Surge ST ankle straps are wide and asymmetrical around the boot for incredible all-around support. Toe straps are designed to be used as a toe cap, but also fit nicely as a traditional strap across the top of the boot.

Ladders and adjusters are produced in-house with unique thermoplastics that maintain flex over a wide temperature range.

Buckles

Proven Burton Buckles
