Here's a quick 'n dirty iPhone edit from the recent SIA show in Denver featuring some of Spark R&D's 2012/2013 products. Both the Blaze and Burner get lighter thanks to refinements to the baseplates and toe strap connectors. Spark will also be launching a brand new interface system as well as two different pole options and skins with their tail kits.
And here's a first look at the new Spark R&D system called Edison. The system uses edge-overlapping metal connectors that can be used with splitboards and solid boards alike. The system also uses a new fixed pin system that will save splitters time and energy during their transition.
Spark R&D revolutionized the sport of splitboarding in 2005 with the introduction of the world's first splitboard-specific strap binding. Since then they've refined their product line every year and helped evolve our sport. Spark R&D has been a supporter and friend of splitboard.com since their inception.
About Spark R&D
Based out of Bozeman, MT Spark R&D is rider owned and operated, dedicated to pushing innovation in the sport of splitboarding, since 2005. With a view of the Bridger Mountains from our shop, we design and build splitboard bindings and accessories with backcountry performance coming first.
All of the products are manufactured and/or assembled in a small shop in Bozeman, Montana USA. From machining to anodizing, laser engraving to assembly– everything is done by a skilled team of workers who are also passionate splitboarders. In-house design and manufacturing capabilities allow our products to quickly evolve and provides us the flexibility to cater to niche customers within the splitboarding market. Spark R&D continues to step it up; seeking perfection based on customer needs and rider feedback, keeping pace with the rapidly expanding splitboarding community.
Customer service is extremely important to us. We’re always looking for feedback and ideas to make our products better. If you have suggestions, we’d love to hear from you. Thank you for your support.
