    So I’m new to sparks only been out on them about 4 times, but I’m already a true believer. My question is: Is the comfort provided by the optional baseplate padding worth the extra weight.

    Hey Peacefrog,
    Glad to hear you’re a true believer! Thanks for your biz. FYI a pair of pads weighs 2.1 oz (60 gm).

    Have a good one,

    I found they increased retention of snow/ice beside my boot, so I ripped them off…don’t really notice a big difference comfort wise. YMMV

    I thought last year my feet were a bit sore after riding all day, not sure if it was crappy socks or a worn out boot either. I’m not seeing the pads on the sparks site. Are they still available? Did anyone else just get some gel or foam and fabricate their own?

    Hey guys,
    We do have the padding material in stock, and can whip them up if you want. Drop an email at if you’d like a set.
