Yup, canted footbeds are unnecessary. Thats why every brand except Union and maybe Drake will offer some form of it by next year. Yup, the ENTIRE industry is wrong. And so is science. Hinged strap? Its one of the most useful things on the market. And I also forgot to mention the dual adjustable toe strap. You can asjust the top stand independently of the bottom one.

How can an entire bindings baseplate be considered tech? Its not even new this year. And 3 pin ratchets ARE better. They make things smoother and keep them from binding. Something Union neglects with the toe ratchet.

And that asym strap makes no sense. For one its bairly asym and again its contrary the the entire rest of the industry who put the fatter side under the ratchet.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
