The Nitro Machine Snowboard Binding is light, stiff, mean, and nasty. It’s the stiffest binding in Nitro’s arsenal. Built to make towering peaks feel small, weak, and ineffectual, the Machine was designed to be ridden with a stiff, angry snowboard—like the Pantera or Magnum. When you’re riding a board that’s built to stomp huge drops and crush gnarly, super steep terrain, it better be set up with the Machine. The Machine’s carbon-reinforced chassis utilizes Nitro’s canted, dual-dampening Airbag system to take the edge off flat landings and absorb vibration to reduce fatigue. The airbags also dramatically reduce weight. The Asym Carbon Beam Highback is lightweight, incredibly stiff, and ergonomically designed for greater comfort and control. The profiled, ergo-cut ankle straps are asymmetrical to provide medial flex while adding lateral support for comfort and enhanced edge power. The toe strap is a convertible model that can be worn over the toe or in front of the toe to pull your boot back into the binding’s heelcup. Both straps are equipped with flex windows that give the strap a comfortable, natural flex and conform to the shape of the boot. The forged aluminum buckles work with the composite Speedwheel for years of smooth, slip-free use. Finally, Nitro’s Ladder Speed Device aligns the strap for a fast, smooth, positive connection.

After the success of ShadowFit, Salomon introduces the Salomhttp://www.snowboardsteez.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3018&action=edit&message=10on Quantum Snowboard Bindings for the 2014 lineup.

Developed with the help of legendary chargers like Jeremy Jones and Devun Walsh, the Drive is like the IPO but on steroids. Focusing on an increase of lateral support throughout your range of motion, Now has exaggerated the lateral arc of a taller more rigid highback around the outside of the boot. The asymmetrical, 3D Flippit ankle strap can be worn in a freestyle setting with the added support over the top of your instep. Or you can switch it up to a freeride mode by flipping the strap over to the other binding, placing the support higher on your ankle. Either way you flip it, the strap is wider on the outside maintaining the lateral support for both options. Inspired by the dynamics of skateboard trucks, major components of Now’s system mimic both the function and description of skateboard trucks. The Hanger transfers energy input from the straps directly to the bushings and onto the edges of the board. The Kingpin acts as a fulcrum, magnifying this energy through leverage. Traditional bindings diminish energy by the flexing and bending of the baseplate, leading to foot pain and fatigue. Now bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right into the board’s edges. They simply transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable longer.
