Fun, convenient, and comfortable, the Arc Split Binding feels light on the uphill and surfy on the down. It's one of Spark R&D's lighter options, and the least expensive model, while still meeting Spark's strict standards for performance. Its Rip 'N' Flip highback is suitable for surfing, tweaking, and freestyling the backcountry, and the CNC-machined aluminum baseplate is 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 comfort and longevity. Not just stiff, the Arc makes the ascent and descent as easy as possible. The highback has a tool-free forward lean adjuster that you can customize in ride mode, and touring mode for easier hiking. The Whammy Bar climbing wire assists 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.
