Why We Like the Spark R&D Blaze Splitboard Binding
Spark R&D's Blaze TR Binding is back again this year for all those in search of some human-powered snowboard action. Splitboarding is become more popular each year, this is a great binding to start out or finish your first split-setup. The orginal pin mount model is a good choice for new or casual splitboarders.
The Blaze is the longest running splitboard binding on the market. Designed for the all-around adventurer looking for straightforward tech and high performance at a pricepoint that‚s hard to say no too. Construction features baseplate cutouts to maximize snowshed and reduce weight. Now including the LT Brackets and dual height wires, you'll just need a splitboard, pucks and skins to get you out in the backcountry.
Offering a soft to medium flex the Blaze will provide a turny and surfy feel to let you take control of your board.
Spark R&D Blaze TR Splitboard Binding comes in Black only.
I was on a tight budget this past spring, but really wanted to piece together a full splitboard package. I went with the Spark Blaze bindings because they're about $100 less than the Arcs, but seem just as good! Yea, they use the old pin style system, but it's really simple to use and works well. It's easy to transition and honestly I'm way faster than my buddy who has Karakorams! lol The bindings feel solid and secure when I ride down, very similar to my solid board bindings. Definitely worth it if you're on a budget, and I'm having a blast with my setup! No regrets!!!
