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.
Flex-Hinge 2.0 Highback - The Flex-Hinge 2.0 offers greater lateral support with a redesigned and repositioned Flex Hinge to absorb chatter and eliminate calf bite.
PA66-GF Buckles - The PA66-GF buckles are made with the same high-grade Nylon and Glass Fiber blend found in NOW's post and disc. This material is light and strong.
Hanger 2.0 Baseplate (Wider Heelcup) - The Hanger 2.0 offers a wider heelcup footprint for better boot compatibility. A drop-down medial wall was added for lateral flexibility, while the addition of snow-clearing channels prevents ice buildup underneath the highback legs.
- Made with 30% glass filled Nylon for weight-savings without sacrificing strength.
- I-beam wall sections are both rigid and light.
- Baseless design allows for uninterrupted board flex.
- Allows for easy energy transfer to the board’s edges.
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.
