Looking at the Now line up I noticed a binding with what looked like no highback... i apologize for not researching further but I was curious if anyone knows more on this concept? Is it purely a park phenomenon to tweak with or is there some science behind the idea?
The Now bindings even for this year can be used without the highback. The way the heelcup holds your boot and the pivot of the kingpin allow enough hold and leverage that you don't really need the backs. It does give a looser feel but it is still super responsive and really fun.
