Default Switchback Bindings?

Switchback Bindings Unveiled
Switchback Bindings

What do you guys think of the new switchback bindings?
Have not heard much about them until today but they look pretty interesting.
Never a bad thing to have the Helgasons on the time backing a product in my opinion.
It looks like an interesting concept.
Is anyone else thinking about putting together a pair?

Its a pretty solid idea and they were comfy. Angrysnowboarder.com will have a full review before they drop in stores.

Im assuming you got to try them?

I am highly considering them.

i checked them out at SIA. i wasn't feeling it at all. they felt/looked very 'un-solid' if i dare say. i dont have the catalog with me right now but they offer color swapping parts and I think easy highback removal. i didn't see them at the demos so I can't say how they ride- so i could be totally wrong about them. i do know that after riding the Now bindings I didn't bother with anything else though except for a couple of spins on the Flux DMCC.

To me, the NOW binding seems like it came from the illogical idea to make a binding worse. Want to add more response? Nah, lets making flop around, just to fuck with people.

i tend to agree. and the skateboard comparison is completely wrong. seems like it would create a 'dead zone' before you actually got response.

are these switchback bindings just for switching colors or are there different stiffnesses and stuff like that?

after reading the little article on them... there is absolutely nothing appealing about them to me. i'm pretty sure you can take the highbacks off of almost every binding. most people don't give a crap about switching up colors.

Interesting idea. I wonder about the quality and how durable they will be.

I could be wrong but I am pretty sure the highback switch is not just color but performance.
