Hi guys,
I know a few people who took the spoilers off their bindings and they swear by it.
They say it gives a surf/skate feeling to the ride.
I'm gonna give it a try this winter.
Have you ever tried it?

I had a sweet spoiler on my Ford Escort. Pretty sure it added at least 10 horsepower.
Most importantly, it probably stabilized that high-powered beast at high speeds.

Sorry guys, English is not my native language.
I was talking about highbacks. :thumbsup:
In Italy we call them "spoilers".

Pretty much all bindings can be ridden without highbacks. But for some the boot-heel cup fit is not great without the highback. That is why some (NOW, Switchback) over little 'no-back' inserts to compensate for that.

Don't some of the new Flows simply have a strap in place of a highback or heelcup?

Yes, here they are



All these bindings are sold for urban/street, so I guess they excel for rails and boxes, but are not so good for the groomers.
I think they could be good in pow too.

Spoilers

Italians call them spoilers. It's the source of a lot of good laughs inside our Italian based brand. I like to call them spoilers from time to time.
