    Arc Splitboard Binding

    The Spark R&D Arc Splitboard Binding feels light on the uphill and surfy on the down. It's one of Spark R&D's lighter options, and it is the least expensive model, which isn't to say it doesn't meet Spark's strict standards for performance. Its Rip 'N' Flip highback has a moderate stiffness suitable for surfing, tweaking, and freestyling the backcountry, and the baseplate is a single piece of CNC-machined aluminum that's been hollowed out for a lighter feel that conforms to your board's natural flex. The Pillow Line straps also have a solid, one-piece construction for durable longevity.

    Not just stiff, the Arc is a fully featured binding to make the ascent and descent as easy as possible. The highback has a tool-free forward lean adjuster that you can customize from 0 to 22 degrees in ride mode, and touring mode boasts a staggering -13 degrees for easier hiking. The whammy bar climbing wire includes two heel risers to assist with the skin track's steeper sections. Finally, Spark's innovative Tesla T1 system attaches the binding to your board without easily-lost pins or flimsy brackets. Instead, the binding slides over Spark or Voile pucks and securely snaps in place. This system makes for quick-and-easy transitions as well as a solid ride downhill.

    Solid and easy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought these bindings for a new Salomon Sick Stick Splitboard. They are quite simply to mount and I ordered a set of the canted pucks at the recommendation of one of the gear guys at Backcountry. Once on the board I spent a but of time setting up my stance angles and ratchet straps and I was good to go. The straps go on very easy with mittens and its not hard to get them inserted properly, even in a bunch of fresh snow. The release of the straps was also quite effortless. Basically a quick slap and they release and you are able to step out of the binding. The high back is easily adjusted to the angle you like as well. Everything is machined metal and feels really solid, Best of all the bindings rode really well. They were responsive and comfortable, cant ask for much else. Since these haven't been used too many times yet there is still some stiffness in sliding them onto the pucks. I expect this will loosen up over time.

    Quality and ease of use

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've had sparks in the past and they seem to improve all of the time. Very easy to use and they don't break the bank.

    Bring on the Snow!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have not been able to use them. Out of the box the highback feels pretty soft. If you want a stiff binding go with the Surge. The Arc Pro may also prove to be slightly stiffer with the carbon infused high backs.
