Default Step In Binding: New design

The popularity of the step in bindings is on the rise again. Main problem people have is not enough support for the toe, therefore puttin more pressure on the heel.
A redesign to incorporate a step in strap or support for the toe could be the answer.

Would you convert to step in bindings if this was developed? and do you think it would work?

Soon we will be riding skis side ways and be calling it snowboard, lets keep the sport orginal, but still develop with these ideas.
Amen for the modern original bindings.

The first person to come up with a system that is as fast as skis and as responsive and comfortable as strap-ins will be a rich person. Or they could end up as a pissed person that got their design stolen. Either way it is something everyone wants.

K2 cinch has one also, but I still think Flow's are the best. I have a pair of 2010 Flow NXT-AT. The bigger surface area of the flow cap distributes pressure more evenly over your foot. You get less foot fatigue and I think it's more responsive b/c it's contacting much more of your boot.

The Gnu bindings are made by Sp-Fastec. They have some good videos here on how they work and how to adjust them at set up. Here

They look exactly like a traditional binding with an ankle strap and a toe strap, except that you can also lower the high back right down flat to get in and out. Better than the Flows as the ankle strap automatically releases when you lower the highback so you can slide in easy and then lock down the ankle strap for a secure fit.

That is what I like about boarding. So many different types of gear and different models to suit everyones needs. We are not all burton clones.
