The Spark R&D T1 Arc baseplate kit is for splitboarders looking to upgrade their Blaze, Burner, Magneto or AfterBurner bindings to the Tesla T1 system. Simply switch out the heel loop, highbacks, ankle strap and toe straps onto the Tesla T1 baseplate and you're ready to hit the backcountry.
Tesla System - The Tesla is a culmination of years on the skin track, riding backcountry and Spark's devotion to detail at the drawing board. 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.
Side-Lock Touring Brackets - Clog-free brackets make switchovers efficient and painless. Slide bindings from left to right onto the offset brackets, lock down the toe ramp and you’re set for touring. New Sabertooth crampon mounting claws for quick and easy installation and removal; you never even have to unstrap.
T1 One Climbing Wire - T1 stands for One Wire, because that’s all you need. A single fatty wire built into the baseplate switches easily from stowed, to low (12°), to high (18°) climbing positions and back again while touring. This eliminates the second wire while saving weight and fiddle time.
T1 Heel Rest - Redesigned heel rest catches the climbing wire in the 12° and 18° positions and is specifically designed to hold the new T1 Heel Locker in place.
