The Women’s Arc has all the features of the men’s Arc but fitted to the ladies. This very lightweight Splitboard binding is softer with cutouts in the base to save weight without losing strength and performance. It features a softer version of the Rip 'n' Flip Highback and low profile ankle and toe straps for easy flex and increased mobility. With the T1 Tesla System, these bindings can do it all: overnighters, trees and steeps!
Tesla T1 Splitboard technology
The T1 system only has one climbing wire to save weight and time. This wire is built into the baseplate and switches from stowed, to low (12 degrees) and high (18 degrees) climbing positions easily. The T1 heel rest will hold the new T1 heel locker in place and catches the climbing wire in 12 and 18-degree positions. Snap ramps and side-lock touring brackets let you slide the T1 bindings sideways into the offset touring bracket and lock them into place with a snap ramp, no pins, no cables, no fiddling.
The T1 system also has great compatibility, the new Spark pucks can simply be slid on and ramped down. The Ibex crampons can be slid in from the side while touring, while two sets of horns on the Ibex crampons will catch the wire in both the 12 and 18-degree climbing positions, this will push the teeth fully into the snow for max security.
The flexible Rip and Flip highback is built to fit all popular Splitboard boots just right and features 0 to 22 forward lean in riding mode and -13 degrees in touring position.
A CNC machined baseplate with maximum cutouts from billet aluminum offers strength and light weight.
The 3D straps are pre-curved for a comforting fit. The buckles and straps are both manufactured by Burton for time-tested performance.
The Spark came when founder Will took his first trip into the backcountry. What started as an quirky idea, has in ten years turned into a successful company that created the first ever splitboard specific binding. Everything from design to packaging is done in-house and thanks to the factory location all products and prototypes can be tested fresh out of the oven. A dream come true for the Spark team.
