The Basics - Snowboard Bindings
Snowboard bindings transfer energy and respond to your body's movements, providing precise control when matched to your board, boots, and ride style. It is important to choose bindings based on your riding style, ability level, board and boots compatibility, and comfort.
Snowboard bindings - categorized by riding style and flex level
The flex of your snowboard bindings should suit your skill level and the terrain you ride on. It should also be aligned with the flex in your boots. Beginners and freestylers tend to choose bindings with short, flexible highbacks (the vertical plate that rests against your Achilles tendon) for a softer, forgiving ride and easy recovery when landing jumps and tricks.
Advanced riders and free-riders typically prefer bindings with tall, stiff highbacks for precise control at high speeds, in deep powder, and on steep terrain. Your choice of snowboard bindings can be narrowed based on the following riding styles:
- All Mountain snowboard bindings are suitable for all types of terrain, including groomed runs, powder, park, and pipe. The flexibility of the bindings depends on your skill level and the terrain you prefer. Generally, riders opt for soft to medium flex, while racers prefer stiff flex.
- Freestyle bindings are designed for jumps, spins, tricks, and park features such as half-pipes, rails, and boxes. They typically have a soft flex to make turning and maneuvering easier.
- Freeride and splitboard bindings are recommended for unmarked backcountry and side-country terrain. The bindings are designed to be stiffer in order to provide better control.
- Powder bindings are usually stiffer on wider, longer boards to provide better control in deep powder.
