Impress your friends with your climbing bar deployment steeze. This retrofit climbing wire with a side arm lever is for your single-wire, non-ST Spark splitboard bindings. Use your touring pole to flip the Whammy Bar down for 12°, then down again for 18°. Flip the bar back up to stow.

Whammy bars have been integrated into our T1 bindings since the 17/18 season, but are offered as a current spare part or retrofit for Spark fans wanting to upgrade their old bindings, or have some spares.

Weights: Whammy Bar 1.48 oz/pr (42g)

All T1 bindings, including the T1 Burton Hitchhiker & Nitro Vertical bindings.

***Not compatible with ST bindings

ST

ST Whammy Bars feature the same great functionality as our standard Whammy Bars, but are upgraded with ST Tech. We overmold a section of the wire with a proprietary thermoplastic blend, right where the climbing wire contacts the baseplate, allowing for even smoother transitions between 12°, 18°, and stowed positions.

ST Whammy Bars are integrated into our ST bindings. They are offered as a current spare part or replacement. We offer standard Whammy Bar kits as a spare part or retrofit option for older model T1 bindings. 

Weight: 1.34 oz/pr (38g)

The ST Whammy Bar is not backward compatible with the Arc, Surge or other previous models due to a geometry change in both the baseplate and wire. We will continue offering standard Whammy Bar kits as well for a retrofit option.
