Default now binding!!

Hello everybody i'm new in this forum!!

i'm going to change a binding for this year.

i always use a Custom Snowboard Binding, but i was looking online and i find this new binding Now Snowboarding | World's First Skate Influenced Binding

what do you think?

i have a splitboard and most the time i'm in the backcountry...


do you think it's good binding???

thanks

Matteo

I own a pair of Now bindings they are amazing in pow the transision edge to edge feels unreal so smooth, they eliminate alot of chatter so going over some rough stuff I don't feel as much as I do with my Ride Meastro bindings.. I don't have a bad thing to say about the Now bindings. They are great in pow but I'm not sure how they would feel on a split hopefuly some other member might be able to help you there.

i was talking about this the other night with a friend. i like my now's a lot but mounting them on slider plates would seem to negate the pivot action. and i'm skeptical of how the bushings would align. it seems to me they would overhang.

as someone else said, if your splitting then get a pair of sparks or light rails. it will be the best option.

These bindings are amazingly fun in pow, so they'll be great in the BC. Theoretically I feel like the slight fore/aft movement would also be benficial while in touring mode too.
