The binding won't open while your weight is on the boot, ie you have to lift the lever and unweight/lift your boot at the same time to get out.

When on a heelside turn the weight of your heel on the baseplate keeps the binding closed. On the toesdie, the weight on the ball of your foot on the baseplate is enough to keep the binding closed on a hard turn. The lock is really needed for any type of air or when your boot is unweighted.

We have ridden the binding without a lock purely as a test. It worked fine for normal cruising, but definitely would not recommend trying that.

If a branch or other was to flick the handle it will flick back down & lock as soon as the branch was gone and you probably wouldn't know. If you collided with a bird while in the air, you could possibly have a problem.....

The aim in the video was to show the ease of exit, but probably could have shown that better & provided some more explanation.

Hiback levers have had a tendency to unlock in the past, especially when sliding on your back. We've place it in a position where it seems least likely to be hit by something. The front binding would be more likely than the rear if there was an issue. More fine tuning to do, but so far no issues in this regard..

You havenít specified sizing, what is the boot size range for the first batch?

If I were to invest in The Strewth SLS instead of hookers and blow what happens if you donít reach the 100k by March 14th?

Seems like an obvious answer from the pix, but let's just ask it anyway -- you can strap/unstrap like a traditional binding, right?

Also, less obvious -- is the highback sprung in any way? Does it pop open on its own when you release, or does it pop up on its own? Or does it just stay wherever you leave it?

- Not finalised yet, but we expect to have two sizes. If you're between an 8 and a 12 you're likely to be OK. We will poll backers for sizes during the campaign to lock this in.

- If we fall short of the target, we'll be looking to bridge the gap elsewhere (depending how big the gap is) and carry on, ie you get your bindings. If that fails, you keep your money.

Seems like an obvious answer from the pix, but let's just ask it anyway -- you can strap/unstrap like a traditional binding, right?
- Yes. Standard straps & buckles. You can strap in and unstrap normally. The buckles are a bit stiffer than normal to prevent unwanted tightening when the boot is out, ie similar to a Cinch or Flow buckle.

Also, less obvious -- is the highback sprung in any way? Does it pop open on its own when you release, or does it pop up on its own? Or does it just stay wherever you leave it?
- The hiback is not sprung. It will basically stay where you leave it. A slight push with the toe of your boot will open it if needed, as long as the binding is not locked closed.

FYI some of my friends at other rear entry companies said you might want to get a good patent attorney and look into patents.

One reason I retired my Cinch bindings after 1 season was the fact they didn't open far enough for me to easily get my boot in. Your's looks to be about the same 35* opening as the Cinch.

Also, why not put the lever on the inside of the binding?

Side note/rant: When possible I switch my ratchets (right to left) so that they're on the inside of my feet, rather than outside. I've never understood why all binding makers put the ratchets on the outside.
