Bindings

Best Men’s and Women’s Snowboard Bindings of 2016-2017.

“I didn’t ride those bindings. They rode me.” So said more than one during this year’s on-snow testing of freeride and freestyle bindings. Some freeride bindings better serve aggressive riding, while others suit kicked back soul-surfer types. And whether you ride competition-level parks or skate-style runs, there’s a freestyle binding tailored for you. From Bent Metal’s sturdy new lineup to Switchback’s fully interchangeable system, snowboarders have never had more on the menu.
