You have got to be kidding.

1)change your name. Maybe you had it first but that name fully belongs to Justin Vernon now

2) those things look like a major injury waiting to happen. I would never trust them.

3) do people think snowboarders are really this lazy? are we? Speed entry bindings are one thing. Stuff like this is unnecessary.

Think they did a lot of testing out around mount snow last season I believe. Not a bad concept and from what I understand only the backfoot unlatches. I am considering getting a couple pair just to test out myself. Probably would say they are about as secure as bindings on a split board.

Believe Cro-Reps-Smith might have tried a pair he has a video posted in the vid section that is from these guys.

Found the video-

I meant the name Bon Hiver (I was being presumptuous that you work with/for/own the company)

I'm all about challenging the ideas of what a snowboard is and can be for the sake of improvement. I don't think strapping in is particularly inconvienent that designing a binding system around it is worth the compromise in performance.

i rode these for about 3 weeks at mt hood and overall the held up decently enough. i was only riding the proto types so there was a lot of little things that got annoying at times but he took all our feedback on them and is going to fix that in the final models. i can say that my foot never came out of the binding when i didnt want it to.

It's called feedback back and good bad or fucking blunt you should take it. So stop whining like a sand filled vagina and take your lumps.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!
