Greetings Spark Dealers! We look forward to working with you again in the 21/22 season. Our product line will carry over for the upcoming season with the exception of our fabric Strappy Strap which is being discontinued but replaced with our new BD Touring Straps. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a meeting with our sales team please email our Sales Manager at Luke@sparkrandd.com

Splitboarding is about getting outside and exploring. It is about taking your snowboarding, not to a new or better level, but to a deeper level. It is about seeking out an experience that you can’t find inside the confines of the resort. The timeless stoke for surfing the snow stays the same, and with it comes an exceptional level of pride where the entire mission can be reached through self-powered shredding. Splitboarding is not just for big-mountain riders looking for an adrenaline rush, it is for anyone who wants to get out and experience the fresh air, solitude, and satisfaction found in backcountry travel.

We are lucky as a company to build products that bring a lot of joy to people and allows them to go places they otherwise could not. We are as excited to help snowboarders get out in the backcountry and explore as we are about getting out ourselves. We design, build, ride and test our bindings – the R&D in our name is sacred and a part of our business that we all actively participate and believe in.

We are proud of the products we build, that we build them here in Montana, and that we strive to source the materials we use locally. That said, we remain humble with the knowledge that we still have a lot to learn. We will continue to push the envelope in all aspects of our company from design to production as we work to create the best possible experience for splitboarders. 

Spark R&D has been manufacturing the Burton Hitchhiker splitboard binding since 2014. In 2020, we introduced an additional partnership with Nitro Snowboards and manufactured the Vertical splitboard binding. We are proud to be working with both of these amazing industry partners.
