The AfterBurner Splitboard Binding from Spark R&D sets new standards. Through a massive alu-baseplate it is a little bit heavier and therefore perfectly suitable for big-mountain riding. Also this binding comes with the new Tesla System.
Through the baseplate the binding has additional stiffness and also the highback is very stiff, torsional from heel to toes. The AfterBurner is therefore especially suitable for agressive splitboarders who want high speed. The ankle straps are very wide and give additional support, whereas the toe strap holds your foot in perfect position even at high speed.
The AfterBurner is available in three colors: Red, Black and Bronze
Tesla System Features:
Snap Ramps: That feature enables an extreme easy mount of the binding. You slide it on the puks. When you step into your Magneto binding the Snap Ramp pushes automatically down. The fiddle with the pins is past.
Side-Lock Touring Brackets: makes it easier to slide the binding on your climbing brackets in split-mode. Easy! Just slide it through the holes in the bracket from left to right, Snap Ramp down and here we go! The new fixing of the crampons is mind blowing. You just slide them from left to right into the bracket and you are up to keep on going in hard terrain.
Fatty Climbing Wires and Heel Plate: The double-heel lifter is integrated in the binding. They have the full width to bring pressure properly to your edge. The heel plate protects your top sheet from damages through strong pressure during ascent with heel lifters.
Sabretooth Crampons: The special crampons are reduced in weight again. All moving parts are history and can easily be mounted on the fly.
Voile Puck Compatiblity: The proven Voile pucks are still very reliable and free themselves from snow when the binding gets pushed on. The Tesla system also works with DIY pucks.
For thos who are into the Pin System: The Burner and the Blaze still exist.
