Yielding a stiff and responsive ride, the Formula C has an appetite for aggressive park riding and all-mountain proficiency. With energy-transferring carbon fiber in the chassis and a highback equally stiff edge-to-edge and laterally, testers found the Formula C ideal for railing hard turns in an out of the park. But with the incorporation of canted footbeds and ample padding, the stiff nature of the Formula C is still balanced out by a comfort driven fit. It's a simple, lightweight, and aggressive binding geared for speed and response wherever you choose to ride.

Binding Features & Details

  • Carbon Reinforced ProFusion chassis
  • 3-Degree canted footbed
  • Sender ankle strap
  • Perfect Fit 2.0 toe strap
  • MSRP $300.00

Rad: The carbon fiber in the chassis makes for a response driven personality.

Bad: Some testers reported snow buildup underneath "snap-on" footbeds.

Tested + Approved 2019 presented by evo.com

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.
