Need help identifying new strap-in/step-in hybrid binding
 
I was up last week snowboarding and I saw an interesting binding.

It was like a standard strap-in binding (which stayed fixed on the boot) but the whole binding clicked onto the board (like a step-in). It seemed like a great compromise between the strap-in and step-in type of bindings.

The great thing was that the bindings allowed the rider to lock-in on the lift and it didn't require additional adjustment.

Can anybody identify this binding? It was clearly not a flow.

Possibly these? 2013 Bon Hiver 13 Series Binding Used and Reviewed

That is exactly what I saw, thanks.

Even though I didn't catch the name of the bindings, the guy using them said that he really liked them. He was somebody who was into trees and powder; he also carried collapsible poles... so not a snowboard park type.

I use Flows and I really liked step-ins a decade+ ago so these sound like a great concept.

He rode with poles? Don't take any advice from him. These things are fucking bear traps that weigh about 25lbs.

That is actually a lie. Maybe you are the one I shouldn't be taking advice from.

A reasonable criticism: they are expensive.

I understand that many snowboarders (especially corporate shills - Burton) are often luddites when it comes to new ideas but I just wanted to know the name of the product, not get opinions from people who never used it.

Are you calling me a liar? The guy that has a set of these sitting right here. A guy that has ridden them. A guy that has had them fail on me on 4 separate occasions. A guy that currently is laughing at the sheer weight of these.

Or are you saying that I'm a liar because I don't believe you should ever trust some fucktard that has to use a pole on his snowboard? I'm kind of lost here.

Also I strongly suggest you perform an anal cranial extraction and realize that Burton did this idea long before BonHiver. It failed then and by comparison it was actually built lighter and better.

But yes I am a lying luddite that knows nothing about snowboarding. Then again if I was a luddite wouldn't I fear the Internet or anything that involved technology? Hmm perhaps you should look up the definition of the word you troglodyte.

Owned.

The general concept might have potential. But they're probably 5-7 years from viablility. And thats realistically to long in this industry to perfect a product before you make money on it.

BurtonAvenger = AngrySnowboarder. Just a heads up. I wouldn't tell his knowledge, whether you agree with him or not on some things he definitely knows his shit.

And who the FUCK boards with poles? Unless the dude had a full pack and was riding a split board what use is there for fucking poles? Is the dude essentially paddling on cat tracks? Is he that awful that he can't hold an edge, and too lazy to unstrap and skate?
