Gnu Agro and Choice bindings

Some product shots of the 2012 Gnu Agro and Choice. There are a lot of other Gnu (and Roxy) rear entry models but these shots have been called out in a couple other threads so here goes.

The Agro is badass (one word? - yo ne se).

Lower the back and the ankle strap closure releases creating a huge gap for entry. Snap up the highback and secure the ankle strap closure and dassit. The ankle strap can also be popped with a liitle release for steezy chairlift comfort. Rear entry and two strap feel. Weight is right in there with standard high end front entry bindings. STOKED.

Wish K2 and GNU would keep a toe ratchet. These type of bindings are great until you hit that one time you need to use the full traditional strap set-up.

Hi Sudden,

I am thinking that you are meaning the deep pow scenario, yes? With Gnu, the two quick flip strap adjusts fully release. So, for a pow easy-out without lowering the back, you can flip both open and release. For a pow get-in, you can front enter, engage the two quick flips and ride out. It is pretty rare that you would need to do this but if you do, its there.

Didn't notice GNU had one on the toes too, that does make a difference. The scenario I was thinking was one I got into with my Cinches was a super steep icy patch where I had to lay on my stomach to access the binding entry.

Here is the 2012 Street. You just loosen the toe cap and release the ankle. It is way easy.
