The moderate-flexing Spark R&D Arc ST Splitboard Bindings get a slew of improvements for the new season. The most significant include upgraded hardware almost anwhere that sees friction during the skinning action. Bindings with the "ST" - or "Smooth Touring" - moniker have overmolded components with low-friction plastic over an interior metal structure, making them smoother, quieter and more durable. The Asym Rip 'N' Flip highbacks are also re-designed for better fit and functionality, and the pivoting action at the bracket is much improved with ST tech added. If your idea of splitboarding is more surf than huck, check out this well thought-out design before you pull the trigger on a binding system.
Spark Arc ST Splitboard Bindings
Improved ST (Smooth Touring) Mode – Spark injection molds a proprietary thermoplastic over existing aluminum or steel parts in a process called "overmolding," reducing friction and improving durabillity.
ST Whammy Bars – Overmolded plastic blend where the climbing wire meets the baseplate to eliminate stickiness. (Note: not backward compatible with previous Arc, Surge or other older models)
ST Touring Brackets – Overmolded with low-friction proprietary plastic over and through the bracket holes in the aluminum base - strong, smoother pivoting, and lasts 4 times longer than the old brass bushing.
