The Logic is the softest binding in Bent Metal's lineup, but that's not to say it's lacking support. Its ergonomically cupped highback wraps around the back of your boot, providing a secure feel countered by a soft flex—you can give this thing a good bend by hand. This pliability makes the Logic the ultimate in tweakability, letting you forget it's there until you need response. That's when it steps up to provide support. Testers welcomed its simplicity and clear freestyle tendencies. Artwork by Sean Genovese is the finishing touch on what testers concluded to be the ultimate in no-nonsense snowboard attachment.

Tested + Approved 2019 presented by

Since its inception four years ago, Tested + Approved has swiftly and proudly established itself as snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. With an endless sea of gear to choose from—bindings and boots, helmets and goggles, gloves, layers, and everything in between—it's not getting any easier to know where to spend your money when everything seems to be touted as the next great innovation in performance and technology. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word.

We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique it. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. What remains is a collection of the industry’s most proven products; all of it Tested + Approved.
