Bindings are energy translating machines. Built of cushy toe and ankle straps, ratchets, tiny toothed ladder straps, baseplates, and highbacks, they communicate between your boots and your board and vice versa. They speak in movement-the universal language of snowboarding. Some respond with a sharp and snappy tone, and others have a soft, relaxed drawl depending on their stiffness. This heap covers the whole spectrum and is sure to please no matter how you slide sideways.
