The BATTLE is an entry-level all-mountain binding that takes the struggle out of snowboard progression. MainFrame highbacks, Shot toe and heel straps, and CPU baseplates with Puffy Pad footbeds provide strong power transmission, comfort and response whether playing in the park or ripping all-mountain. Step into the Battle and get ready to throw down.
HISTORY: Snowboarding bindings were invented 30 years ago to improve safety, enhance riding quality and allow progression. BIOMECHANICS: They were, and still are, made to optimize the mechanical laws relating body shifts and board control, which are mainly energy transfer, response (or flex) and dampening. CHOOSE: According to your riding style, ability level, board/boot compatibility, comfort needs and buying power. REMINDER: • There's never enough shock absorption. • Flexy hibacks are more appropriate to begin with or for tweaks but offer limited response. • Your bindings should accomodate your boots with no effort. • Your bindings should allow your boot to flex but not to shift. • Pick straps that go over your boots, not over your board. • Women have specific calves that need specific hibacks.
