The Spark R&D Pro Series represents the peak of lightweight design to help you go further in the mountains. Built on their acclaimed Tesla T1 platform, the Spark R&D Arc Pro Splitboard Bindings take the best of the best – premium materials, custom-made components, innovative design – and wrap it up in a ludicrously lightweight package ready to take the backcountry by storm. From the carbon reinforced highbacks to the hollowed out pivot pins, every element has been broken down and pored over for opportunities to shave grams and improve performance, resulting a featherweight binding that rides great and still has the muscle to withstand the rigors of backcountry travel.
Arc Pro splitboard bindings feature all the same great assets as our standard Arc bindings – T1 technology, Tesla snap ramps, maximum baseplate cutouts, surfy highbacks, Pillow Line Straps with a flex window – but they are tuned up with premium materials and custom versions. We used carbon-reinforced nylon in the highbacks, full Pebax® plastics for the straps, ladders and adjusters, 7075 aluminum in the heel loops allowing us to make them thinner and lighter, 7 custom made screws and hardware pieces, and lastly, we hollowed out the steel pivot pins to shave a few more grams.
