16/17 Surge – The Gemsstock

For winter 2016 / 2017, the Surge enters its second year in the Spark R&D line. It sits alongside the Arc binding in the Spark range and is built around the same Tesla T1 system. The Arc is the lighter, more minimal of the two, the Surge is more burly. As Spark R&D put it, the Surge is an ‘unapologetically stiff and powerful ‘ binding. I got the chance to use a pair of Surge binders on a recent trip to Norway. They were a permanent fixture on the Amplid Creamer Split I took along on that trip. https://thegemsstock.com/spark-rd-surge-splitboard-binding-2017-review/
