Product Info

Spark R&D Surge Splitboard Bindings are built for backcountry performance, pure and simple. They're lightweight, durable, and uncomplicated, so you can get to the matter at hand: laying waste to all that pow. They feature Spark's Tesla T1 technology, a marvel of practical simplicity. Just snap the toe ramp down and you're connected. In ride or tour mode, there's no wiggle, no jiggle. Say goodbye to lost pins and frozen fingers, this is a true gloves-on transition situation. The Surge is beefier than the Arc, with a solid baseplate design, but is by no means heavy. Clever without being too smart for its own good, it features the integrated Whammy Bar and stiffer Flip'N'Rip highbacks with more supportive straps. All of this adds up to a dialed and bombproof splitboard binding. Spark R&D has paved the way, the rest is up to you.

Product Details

Tour Mode

Whammy Bar Climbing WireA single built-in fatty climbing wire with a side arm lever. You can switch easily from stowed, to low (12°), to high (18°) climbing positions and back again while touring, thanks to the T1 Heel Rest.

Tesla T1 SystemTesla T1 bindings slide sideways into the offset touring brackets and are locked into place with the snap ramp. No pins, no cables, no fiddle factor.

Ride Mode

Snap to RideT1 bindings slide across pucks utilizing the snap ramp to lock into place for a tight ride down.


CNC Machined Aluminum with Maximum CutoutsThe Arc splitboard binding is lightweight for long tours, epic overnighters, trees, and steeps. The baseplate is CNC machined with maximum cutouts to shave weight yet maintain strength and performance while incorporating Spark's industry-leading Tesla T1 binding anatomy.


Pillow Line StrapsArc Pillow Line Straps are lightweight - 46% lighter than their fabric strap predecessors. They are ultradurable, comfortable, waterproof, one-piece molded construction, and made 100% in-house. Strap pillows are thin and flexible for a comfortable, conformed fit, while thicker ribs are held off the boot and provide stiffness for a uniquely responsive ride.


Burton BucklesAll straps incorporate Burton's bomber buckles. 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.


Rip 'N' Flip HighbackThe Arc highback has a moderate amount of glass fiber fill for medium flex and a surfy feel. The tool free forward lean adjuster (FLAD) offers 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.


Puck CompatibilitySlide 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.
