HOW TO CHOOSE SNOWBOARD BINDINGS

Essential parts of the board, the bindings ensure effective gliding and snowboard control, while also providing support and comfort.q

Description of snowboard bindings

Firstly, discover what snowboard bindings are composed of.

Correctly choosing snowboard bindings

There are 2 families of bindings:

THE TRADITIONAL BINDINGS

A classic instep strap + a toe strap which provides very good support.

Variant with cap strap: a front strap which covers toes (front and above toes). The great advantage of a cap strap is the high level of comfort, whilst supporting the front of the foot just as much as a classic strap.

By tightening the cap strap, the shoe is held upwards whilst it moves fully back into the binding. It is perfect for reducing the chance of feet overhanging the board.

SNAP BINDINGS

With front entry or wide and unique instep strap.

The plus points? Quick to slip on and memorised adjustment (simply adjust once), greatly appreciated!

Choosing the size of your snowboard bindings

The choice of binding size is based upon your shoe size. An indicative equivalent is provided for each binding. For example L = 8 1/2 to 14 1/2. This binding is a size L and is suitable for shoe sizes 8 1/2 to 14 1/2.

Just like we normally try on snowboard boots to pick the correct size, we recommend trying on your bindings with your snowboard boots to get the correct size.

 

Good luck with your choice of bindings. Have a good season!
