Binding question history of a few Brands

Hi

I've been out of snowboarding for about 4-5 years and just finally got back into it,things have changed so much.

made it on the Hill last night and wow I have rust to shake off

I'm looking for some info on a few brands I keep seeing that I never remember when I was really into the sport when I was younger

I really need new bindings,my k2 bindings have the footbed molded into the bindings

Can someone explain when the switch came to make a footbed adjustable


unionWhen did this company come around-What's it's partner company(Burton-ride)

How's the quality of this brand

Rome-???

Technine ???

Nitro

Ltd

Any info on these brands would be great

union Started 6 years ago. Fairly good durability. Ride is ok, some rave, I think they're a little overrated. No partner, they're old Drake designers

Rome- 2001, Targas and 390's are very popular and built well.

Technine Started in Beaver Creek of all places. Been around a long time and invented the lifetime warranty on baseplates. Quality is on the up, not quite up to par yet, but close.

Nitro Raiden for bindings. I have no idea how long they have existed as bindings. They make a really good binding and are probably the most underrated binding manufacturer out there.

Ltd Don't even worry about them. Low end. Really low end.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Union is "meant" to be with Capita boards. Both brands are under the C3 umbrella.

C3-Worldwide | Home of CAPiTA - COAL - UNION

Too Fast!
