Spark R&D Arc Pro 2022 Binding - Black
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.
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.
