For those splitters who already have a set of Blaze, Burner, Magneto and/or AfterBurner bindings, but are now ready for the Tesla T1 System. Switch the heel loop, highbacks, ankle and toe straps onto Tesla T1 baseplates and you are ready to rock.
Spark R&D Baseplate Design - Incorporating cutouts for traction, snowshed and weight savings.
CNC Machined - All Spark R&D splitboard bindings are CNC machined from billet aluminum for maximum strength.
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 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.
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.
