Thumbs up How to Strap in Faster

This is a way of strapping in a few seconds faster:

Before getting on the chairlift, fold your highback down and under the ankle strap. Wen you unfold the highback, it will push the ankle straps behind it, moving those bitches out the way so you only have to move the toe strap to get your foot in. Fasten the toe strap first.

This helps for people who ride with skiers or boarders with speed-entry, which was my situation.

This is a tasty burger.

Nah. Those are the exact bindings both of my friends have...and they both broke! One was a couple of years ago and the other was only on his 2nd day of using them!

With the fast strap-in method, you get the reliability of traditional bindings with a speed not far-off of reclining highbacks!

It helps to learn this if you're not willing to get rid of you're old bindings and spend the extra money on new ones with speed-entry.

Thanks for putting that out anyway, I guess.

This is a tasty burger.

what if you don't have highbacks?

Then just pull back the ankle strap instead of the highback.

+1 Not sure why this is news, I've seen people strapping in standing up for years.

the only time I strap in sitting is when I am in an awkward area and can't keep my balance. This seldom happens. I don't want to make butt contact with the snow.

Does the OP sit down when he pees too?

I'm just starting this season and I don't sit to strap. It's not hard at all to do unless you are on steep terrain.

My friend and co-worker has been riding for 3 years and he sits down every time. Looks like a tard. I keep telling him to just stand the fuck up, but he won't even try.
