Orbit, a company from Redlands, California has created what they think is a “the most radical advance in snowboarding since metal edges”. The Orbit binding plate features a “revolutionary free-rotating binding that allows your foot to instantly pivot to the optimum stance, while still giving you masterful edge control.”
Imagine a salad spinner under each binding and you’re beginning to understand what the Orbit has to offer the snowboarding world.
The company also claims that the swivel allows riders to go edge to edge “about twice as fast,” “land more jumps,” “reduce stress on knees,” and our favorite it gives you the “sensuous floating feeling” that feels like you’re surfing.
If you thought strapping into a snowboard on a carpeted floor was no problem, then stop by the Orbit booth at #3047 and see just how difficult it can be.
