It will be ten miles from civilization when you truly appreciate the premium comfort, strength, and proven performance of this Burton x Spark R&D brainchild. A revolution in split-specific performance, the Hitchhiker marries the reliably easy conversions of Spark R&D’s Tesla System baseplate with Burton-enhanced features like the Hammockstrap™ and Supergrip Capstrap™, both featuring the speed and strength of Double Take buckles. Topped off with a customized hi-back featuring skintrack-friendly negative Forward Lean options, this is the best possible solution for ruling the ups and downs of backcountry touring.
MOUNTING SYSTEM- Splitboarding
BASEPLATE- NEW Spark R&D Tesla T1 System featuring a built-in single, fatty climbing wire [Machined Aluminum]
Burton-Designed Single-Component Hi-Back Construction
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Using our book of material secrets, we can manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive.
Negative Lean Hi-Back
The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing like Ethan. We offer two versions, DialFLAD™ and MicroFLAD™, both tool-free and micro-adjustable for easy fine-tuning and maximum angle options.
True OTT Hi-Back Padding
Reactstrap roots in a stitch-less construction for ultra-response with minimal materials. The addition of a nylon cross spine equals a more direct connection with the board.
Our Flex Slider makes strapping in a breeze with a strategically stretched hinging zone that allows the heel strap to flex and fall fully open. Thanks to science of forced molecular alignment, the Flex Slider is also stronger, making it worthy of our LIFETIME WARRANTY.
This minimalist design merges two materials into one technologically advanced toe strap. A firmer material in the spine provides a supportive and lightweight skeleton, while a softer over-molded material improves boot wrap and comfort.
BUCKLES- Double Take Buckles Featuring Insta-Click
Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton’s Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and "Insta-Click" engagement combine for increased torque per crank, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.
CUSHIONING- Features Re-Ground Materials to Reduce Waste
The Hitchhiker Binding mounts directly to 2015 and newer Burton splitboards without any additional hardware neededTo mount the Hitchhiker Binding to any other splitboard, you must purchase additional interface hardware sold separately through www.sparkrandd.com/gear/spark-pucks
