Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Tip/tail clips upgrade – Spark vs Karakoram Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) Author Posts February 21, 2019 at 12:42 am #828290 HotSnowball 8 Posts I am planning to upgrade the tip and tail clips on my Carbon Solution. Looking at both the new Spark R&D Tip & Tail Clips as well as the new Karakoram Tip Locks. Any experiences or thoughts on either one (or both)?

They actively clamp the tip/tail of your splitboard together with a significant amount of force. When used in unison with the Ultraclips, the entire splitboard is extremely tight, and absolutely rattle free. The thing that makes our TipLocks better, is purely this ability to actively join together the two halves of your board. You really do notice the increased stiffness, particularly when charging out the bottom of a line in open throttle position, only to smash into avi debris under a few inches of powder. The tip of your board simply behaves like a solid board: There’s no blowing out of the tip clip, ever. Just my 2 cents. -Russman March 29, 2019 at 12:29 pm #830309 powderjunkie 1665 Posts the tiplocks look sick. Just bought a Jones board and was hoping they would be on the board. I’m assuming they are currently only aftermarket. Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
