It also has an exclusive hi-back that offers negative forward lean options for easier skinning. This is the ultimate binding for conquering the challenges and rewards of backcountry touring.

Product Features


  • Spark R&D Tesla T1 System machined aluminum baseplate is pin and cable free, so the binding slides easily into offset touring brackets and locks into place using a snap ramp

  • Single-component hi-back construction features one material throughout, providing consistent response and feel while riding in any terrain

  • Splitboard mounting system is lightweight and hassle free, interfacing with any channel puck mounting system

  • Negative forward lean hi-back is designed for comfortable backcountry touring

  • Quick-adjust FLAD system allows you to make micro adjustments to your forward lean angle to customize your ride

  • Double Take buckles offer quicker engagement, faster tongue uptake, and fewer cranks to tighten your straps for vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use

  • Hammockstrap ankle strap is ultra-responsive with a stitch-less construction and minimal materials, featuring a nylon cross spine for a more direct board connection

  • Supergrip Capstrap 2.0 toe strap is fully injected to reduce waste and features a rubber overmold to keep the strap in place and increase grip while wrapping over the toebox of the boot
