The Women's Arc has all of the same great features as our standard Arc - CNC baseplate with max cutouts, surfy highback, and lower profile ankle strap - but sized specifically for women's boots. Shorter and narrower baseplates fit snug and comfortably, accommodating down to a size 5 US (22 Mondo) boot. Lower and more compact heel loops move the ankle strap mounting point down to hit the sweet spot over your boot while positioning the highbacks lower on the leg for a better calf fit. NEW for this season, the Women's Arc will also feature our Pillow Line straps: lightweight, waterproof, ultradurable, comfortable, one-piece molded construction. 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. Weight: 1.35lb/ea (611g) - 2.69lb/pr (1222g) - XS/S Pillow Line Straps Arc Pillow Line Straps are lightweight - 46% 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. Arc ankle straps have a smaller footprint than the Surge and feature a flex window for max agility while maintaining 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 Arc highback has a moderate amount of glass fiber fill for medium flex and a surfy feel. The tool free forward lean adjuster (FLAD) offers complete customization from 0Adeg to 22Adeg in ride mode. The Forward Lean Adjuster toggles easily between forward lean position and -13Adeg 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 (12Adeg), to high (18Adeg) 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. Puck Compatibility 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 Arc bindings conveniently access puck screws with the bindings in place for precise stance adjustment. New for this season, Spark R&D is offering a 3Adeg canted puck option. T1 Heel Rest The T1 Heel Rest catches the climbing wire in the 12Adeg and 18Adeg 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.
Introducing Dynafit's entirely reworked skin. A technical breakthrough prevents undesirable snow build-up while also providing excellent gliding and climbing qualities. A special middle membrane stops water from being absorbed and improves the skin's edge seals. The skins are tear resistant and do not wrinkle easily. The Dynafit Stretch System provides the ideal attachment between skin and ski tail. Snow and ice is prevented from getting under the skin, which is tightly wrapped around the tip. FreerideTourers, SkiTourers and SkiRunners all realize their common dream: top performance, great traction, lightweight, and long gliding skins.
Dynafit turned to Pomoca's engineers to create its lightest weight ski touring skin, the Race Ready Speedskin. From the ultra-secure skin attachments to the three-layer construction that maximizes glide and climbing grip without adding to overall weight, this skin is a must for anyone who counts grams and seconds when racing up the mountain.
