Spark R&D Arc Splitboarding Binding
Lightweight and Surfy
The Arc splitboard binding is lightweight for long tours, epic overnighters, trees, and steeps. The baseplate is CNC machined with maximum cutouts to shave weight yet maintain strength and performance while incorporating our industry-leading Tesla T1 binding anatomy. All Arc bindings feature a medium flex version of the Rip N' Flip highback and a smaller profile Pillow Line ankle strap with flex window for a nice surfy ride down. This season an optimized snap ramp will help shave a few extra grams.
Every piece of this binding is made in-house with the exception of a few screws and the buckles!
In the Box: Bindings, Tesla touring brackets, T1 heel rests, mounting screws, and Spark pocket tool.
What else do I need? A set of Spark Pucks, Spark Canted Pucks, or Voile pucks.

Pillow Line Straps
Surge Pillow Line Straps are lightweight - 53% lighter than their fabric strap predecessors. They are ultradurable, comfortable, waterproof, one-piece molded construction, and made 100% in-house. Strap pillows are thin and flexible for a comfortable, conformed fit, while thicker ribs are held off the boot and provide stiffness for a uniquely responsive ride. Surge ankle straps have a wide, asymmetrical footprint around the boot for incredible all-around support. The toe straps come in one construction for both Arc and Surge models and are designed to be used as a toe cap but also fit traditionally over the top.
Rip 'N' Flip Highback
The R&D shines with a shape built from 3D scans of popular splitboard boot models, and a list of rad features designed specifically for and fully appreciated by the split boarder. The Surge highback has a high amount of glass fiber fill for a stiff ride and maximum response. The tool free forward lean adjuster (FLAD) offers complete customization from 0° to 22° in ride mode. The Forward Lean Adjuster toggles easily between forward lean position and -13° touring position for easy transitions.
Whammy Bar Climbing Wire
A single fatty climbing wire is built into the baseplate with a sidearm lever for easy position changes on the steeps. You can switch easily from stowed, to low (12°), to high (18°), and back again while touring.
Snap Ramps & Side-Lock Tesla Touring Brackets
T1 System bindings slide sideways into the offset touring bracket and are locked into place with our snap ramp. No pins, no cables, no fiddle factor. Integrated Ibex crampon mounting claws on touring brackets make for quick and easy installation and removal.
Slide them on and snap the ramp down. Snap the ramp up and slide them off. The most functional way to attach your binding to your board in ride mode. Period. Spark R&D bindings are designed to work with all puck compatible splitboard models. Available in a flat and a 3° canted model.
T1 Heel Rest
The T1 Heel Rest catches the climbing wire in the 12° and 18° positions and is specifically designed to hold the T1 Step Locker in place.
Buckles & Plastics
Ladders and adjusters are produced in-house with unique thermoplastics that maintain flex over a wide temperature range, performing well on spring tours as well as sub-zero suffer fests. All straps incorporate Burton's time-tested bomber buckles.
