Why we chose the Spark R&D Arc Women’s Snowboard Bindings: Less faff, more fun.
There are two common misconceptions in splitboarding: The first, is that you have to lug a crap tonne of weight up the arse end of the mountain; and the second is that once you get there, you spend the next hour painstakingly transitioning from walk to ride mode. Spark R&D have dispelled both these myths with their legendary bindings. The women’s specific Arc binding is as lightweight, functional and freeride friendly as they come.
“The binding features a narrower baseplate, lower and more compact heel hoops and custom moulded straps”
Aside from the weight, Spark don’t do things by halves. The binding features a narrower baseplate, lower and more compact heel hoops, and custom moulded straps designed to accurately fit the most common boot brands out there. The aluminium baseplate is cut out to drastically shave excess weight off without compromising the binding’s overall stiffness. There’s another advantage to this: Metal conducts the cold. The less of it underfoot, the better the chance your toes have of staying warm when you’re out on a dawn patrol.
