Spark R&D Arc Pro 2022 Binding - Black

Boardworks Breakdown: 

If you are a lighter rider that charges, or a medium-sized rider that's looking for a fun surfy binding, it's really hard to beat the Spark Arc bindings. Getting the pro versions of the Arcs is ideal for those that want to have the lightest split they possibly can while still having great performance. They climb great, ride great, and are super comfortable. Not to mention they are chock-full of super functional features. We really can't say enough good things about these bindings. 

 

Manufacturer Description: 

The lightest and highest performing splitboard bindings in the world - made with incredible attention to detail and no compromises.

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.

In the Box: Bindings, Tesla touring brackets, T1 heel rests, aluminum mounting screws, and Spark pocket tool.

What else do I need? A set of Spark Pucks or Spark Canted Pucks.

Weight: 1.23 lbs/ea (557g) - 2.46 lbs/pr (1114g) – Medium

Technology

Pebax Pillow Line Straps

Arc Pro Pillow Line Straps are made with Pebax® plastics, a premium material most often found in high-end ski boots as it provides consistent stiffness and improved toughness in cold temperatures while being 20% lighter. Like our standard pillow line straps, they are ultradurable, comfortable, waterproof, one-piece molded construction, and produced 100% in-house. Strap pillows are thin and flexible for a comfortable, conformed fit, while thicker ribs are held off the boot and provide support for a uniquely responsive ride. Arc Pro ankle straps are smaller around the boot than the Surge Pro and feature a flex window for max agility while maintaining support. The toe straps come in one construction for both Arc Pro and Surge Pro models, and are designed to be used as a toe cap but also fit traditionally over the top.



Carbon Renforced Highbacks

The Arc Pro Rip ‘N’ Flip highback is made from carbon-reinforced nylon in a ratio designed for medium flex and a surfy feel. This material blend is more responsive, lighter, and stiffer than our standard glass-reinforced highbacks. All Rip ‘N’ Flip highbacks incorporate a tool free forward lean adjuster (FLAD) for 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 side arm 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.



Puck Compatibility

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. When used with Arc bindings conveniently access puck screws with the bindings in place for precise stance adjustment. Available in a flat and a 3° canted model. Note that pucks do not come with the bindings out of the box and must be purchased separately. 



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.
