how are plastic bindings so strong?

take est for example

when you take away the footbed you just get this U shaped frame. looks like you can snap it in half with your bare hands. but it's so strong. lets say you weight 170 lbs, doing huge landings and the bindings can withstand all that weight and impact.

crazy eh?

Unicorn tears and pixie dust, yes. But everyone knows there's no such thing as a virgin.
