NOW Drive Snowboard Bindings 2022
NOW Drive bindings are perfect for all-mountain / freeride thanks to a lot of comfortable features that reduce leg fatigue and improve response. The Calfback highbacks are set up to eliminate pressure points and deliver a consistent response. You can even adjust the damping by customizing your bushings (medium and hard bushings included) and see for yourself what NOW's Skate-Tech design is all about.

Skate-Tech Baseplate Design - NOW's Skate Tech system mimics the function of skateboard trucks. The ‘Hanger' powerfully transfers energy input from the straps to the bushings and onto the edges of your board. The 'Kingpin' acts as a fulcrum, magnifying this energy through leverage.
Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by flexing and bending the baseplate, forcing you to crank your straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer highbacks. This all leads to more foot fatigue and pain. NOW bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the board's edges. NOW bindings transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable, longer.
Lifetime Warranty (Limited, See Details) - Covered under manufacturer lifetime guarantee against breakage of the baseplate or heelcup along with defects in materials or workmanship. This lifetime warranty DOES NOT cover broken bindings due to abuse or neglect, damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility, or lost parts due to lack of hardware maintenance.
Highbacks, straps, ratchets and other components are not included under lifetime warranty.
Calfback Highback - Higher medial side follows leg angles
Pre-rotated 10 degrees
15mm higher than the Freewing highback
Lateral hook for added support
Calfback Technology distributes pressure evenly from the top of the highback and dampens the ride
Hybrid Flip It Straps - The hybrid strap is a combination of the Hyperfuse strap and Flip It strap. The injected spine and EVA are bonded together to form one strap, which gives you the best of both worlds - support, durability and comfort. The Hybrid Flip It strap can also be used like the regular Flip It. Simply switch your ankle straps to the other foot and change your support setting.
3D Pro-Grip Toe Strap - Non-slip and solid grip is what you will have with the 3D Pro-Grip Toe Strap. Not only is it super grippy, but moldable, and can be used on the tip or toe of your boot.
PA66-C Buckles - The PA66-C Buckles are made with a high grade composite blend material that is extremely light and strong, in turn reducing the overall buckle weight by 20%.
Ladder Tech - • Curved out at base, to keep them out of the way
• Sleeker profile
• Angled sides for cleaner look/feel
• Cold temp and impact tested
Hanger 3.0 Baseplate - Featuring a wider bushing footprint that is closer to the board’s edges for enhanced board connection and faster energy transfer. The H3 also encompasses a reduction in weight, a dropped-down inner lateral wall for better ankle mobility, and is able to accommodate bigger volume boots. To top it off, it also has a new kingpin tool-less 2.0 that is more integrated and user friendly. Not only does the H3 come heavily equipped with these advanced features, but also showcases some of its predecessor the H2’s snow-clearing channels, medial drop-down wall and high-cup compatibility. Now this is worth the upgrade.
Kingpin Tech - Hollow rivet assembly links the Hanger to the Alumi-ring, which creates a fulcrum for efficient energy transfer.
Hollow stainless steel rivet is extremely light and strong.
Hinge Connector - • Hinge design allows strap to move out of the way
• Stop mechanism, prevent floppy strap
• Minimalist and strong
Base Bushings (Medium: 45 Shore) - 45 Shore is classified as a medium hard/soft bushing, right in the middle. The softer the bushing the smoother the ride, however the harder the bushing the more responsive the ride. This is a true damping system that is placed at the main contact point to the board, which means by adjusting the hardness here it has the most impact in lessening board chatter while still allowing for powerful energy transfer directly to the edges of your board.
Base Bushings (Hard: 55 Shore) - 55 Shore is the hardest bushing available. The softer the bushing the smoother the ride, however the harder the bushing the more responsive the ride. This is a true damping system that is placed at the main contact point to the board, which means by adjusting the hardness here it has the most impact in lessening board chatter while still allowing for powerful energy transfer directly to the edges of your board.
