"If I could ride one pair of bindings for the rest of my life," said one veteran tester, "it would be the Trilogy." Lightweight, supremely durable, ultra responsive, and yet somehow soft enough to tweak, these bindings once again stood out with straightforward fit and top-tier performance. Testers found on-the-fly adjustments to be a snap, though once things were dialed in changes were rarely needed. Union's ankle straps were comfortable without being overbearing, and the lightweight toe straps provided just enough rubbery grip to remain secure. From boosting airs to laying down deep carves, the Trilogy is everything you need.

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.
