- A premium material most often found in high-end ski boots as it provides consistent stiffness and improved toughness in cold temperatures. It’s also 20% lighter.
- 7075-T6 aluminum hardware, 65% lighter than stainless parts.
Carbon Reinforced Nylon Highbacks - More responsive, lighter, and stiffer than Spark's standard glass reinforced highbacks. Injection molding allows for more complex geometry and improved impact strength compared to other methods of carbon fiber construction.
Pillow Line Straps - Pillow Line Straps are lightweight - 46% lighter than their fabric strap predecessors. They are ultradurable, comfortable, waterproof, 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.
Arc ankle straps have a smaller footprint than the Surge and feature a flex window for max agility while maintaining 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.
CNC Machined - All Spark R&D splitboard bindings are CNC machined from billet aluminum for maximum strength.
Tesla System - Tesla is Spark's premium splitboard binding system with touring brackets, crampons and climbing wires all working together with no unnecessary moving parts - just a clean, simple design that raises the bar in splitboard binding technology.
Made in the USA - All of Spark R&D's products are manufactured and/or assembled at their own small shop in Bozeman, Montana USA, since 2006. With a view of the Bridger Mountains right outside their window, Spark R&D designs and builds splitboard bindings and accessories with backcountry performance coming first.
From machining to anodizing, laser engraving to assembly – everything is done by a skilled team of workers who are passionate splitboarders. Spark R&D continues to step it up; seeking perfection based on customer needs and rider feedback, keeping pace with the rapidly expanding splitboarding community.
