Spark R&D Magneto Splitboard Bindung

The Magneto is the leight weight from Spark R&D. A lot of weight is saved through notches in the baseplate. Therefore the binding fits perfectly for splitboard tour friends who walk far to shred in untouched powder. The highback is relatively soft to realize a senstitive power transmission. The stiffness in the direction to heel and toes realizes perfect control in hard conditions.The ankle straps support your feet and are flexible at the same time. Nothing stands in the way for fast turns. The toe straps are made out of a new material called Gripmatic. That's why they stay there where you need them.

The Magneto Splitboard Binding is available in three colors: Lichen, Blue and Black

Sizes: S,M,L


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 those who are into the Pin System: The Burner and the Blaze still exist.

    i tested the magneto for 2 tours.
    it performs really well. no more hassle with a pin. easy change over! the system is self clearing, no need to clean the interface before assembling the board
    only the climbing bar operation is a little bit tricky, for the lower one you have to activate both bars and then pull back the higher one.
    the riding performance is also quite good. would be interesting to compare it with the afterburner directly

    Die Bindung ist super leicht, war beim Aufstieg sehr angenehm und gab bei der Abfahrt einen sicheren Halt. Das einfache System ermöglichte mir als Splittboard-Anfänger ein schelles Umbauen ohne viel Kraftaufwand.
