THE SURGEThis is the Surge Snowboard Bindings by Spark R&D. Color is Blue.
The Surge is built for big days on big lines, and is preferred by our bigger, more aggressive riders. Solid baseplate design, stiffer Rip ‘N’ Flip highbacks, and more supportive Pillow Line ankle straps combine to give riders greater control in demanding terrain. All Surge bindings incorporate our industry-leading Tesla T1 technology. This season an optimized snap ramp will help shave a few extra grams. Every piece of this binding is made in-house with the exception of a few screws and the buckles!
In the Box: Bindings, Tesla touring brackets, Tesla T1 heel rests, mounting screws, and Spark pocket tool.
What else do I need? A set of Spark Pucks, Spark Canted Pucks, or Voile pucks.
Weight: 1.51 lbs/ea (686g) - 3.02 lbs/pr (1372g) - Medium

Everything you need to know about the Surge!
Pillow Line Straps
Surge Pillow Line Straps are lightweight - 53% lighter than their fabric strap predecessors. They are ultradurable, comfortable, waterproof, one-piece molded construction, and made 100% in-house. Strap pillows are thin and flexible for a comfortable, conformed fit, while thicker ribs are held off the boot and provide stiffness for a uniquely responsive ride. Surge ankle straps have a wide, asymmetrical footprint around the boot for incredible all around support. The toe straps come in one construction for both Arc and Surge models, and are designed to be used as a toe cap but also fit traditionally over the top.
Rip 'N' Flip Highback
The R&D shines with a shape built from 3D scans of popular splitboard boot models, and a list of rad features designed specifically for and fully appreciated by the splitboarder. The Surge highback has a high amount of glass fiber fill for a stiff ride and maximum response. The tool free forward lean adjuster (FLAD) offers complete customization from 0° to 22° in ride mode. The Forward Lean Adjuster toggles easily between forward lean position and -13° touring position for easy transitions.
One Climbing Wire
T1 stands for One Wire – because that’s all you need. A single fatty wire built into the baseplate switches easily from stowed, to low (12°), to high (18°) climbing positions and back again while touring. For 17/18, all Arc and Surge bindings come standard with Whammy Bars for easy climbing wire position changes on the steeps.
Snap Ramps & Side-Lock Touring Brackets
T1 System bindings slide sideways into the offset touring bracket and are locked into place with our snap ramp. No pins, no cables, no fiddle factor. Integrated Ibex crampon mounting claws on touring brackets make for quick and easy installation and removal.
Slide them on and snap the ramp down. Snap the ramp up and slide them off. The most functional way to attach your binding to your board in ride mode. Period. Spark R&D bindings are designed to work with all puck compatible splitboard models. When used with Surge bindings conveniently access puck screws with the bindings in place for precise stance adjustment. New for this season, Spark R&D is offering a 3° canted puck model.
T1 Heel Rest
The T1 Heel Rest catches the climbing wire in the 12° and 18° positions and is specifically designed to hold the T1 Heel Locker in place.
Buckles & Plastics
Ladders and adjusters are produced in-house with unique thermoplastics that maintain flex over a wide temperature range, performing well on spring tours as well as sub-zero suffer fests. All straps incorporate Burton's time-tested bomber buckles.
