UNIQUE DEVELOPMENTS FOR 2018-19

IT’S WHAT
IS NEXT

The key to the Strata’s high performing yet super damp ride is the combination of baseplate and bushing materials/processes. The Microfuse Injected Stage 6 base is our lightest/strongest base to date, and extremely responsive. The all new Fused Vaporlite Bushing Systems have never been seen on a snowboard binding, and absorb vibrations and chatter like no other.

NON-STICK EVA

All new snow-shedding coating keeps ice from building up on your EVA padding. Waterproof! (Expedition FC, Expedition, FC, Ultra & Falcor)

FUSED VAPORLITE

Rapid injection molded, Fused Vaporlite is the most waterproof, durable and vibration cancelling material ever created on a snowboard binding. Featured on the new Strata.

GRADE 8.8 HARDWARE

The most commonly used hardware is made from "mild steel" that has a property class of only 4.6. Considering how much stress a binding is put under, we use only the strongest steel (featuring a property class of 8.8) on all hardware.

TOE STRAP PIN

Always looking for weight reduction, the new "pins" adjustment system (featured on the Expedition FC), is a great solution to simplify and lessen the load.

HEX ANKLE STRAPS

Seamlessly conforming around your boot, Hex Ankle Straps are incredibly responsive and durable. Found on the Expedition FC and FC bindings.

FORMA ELITE

The Forma Elite Ankle Straps provide strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside. Found on the Ultra and Falcor bindings.

EXOFRAME

Direct-Connect system anchors boot to baseplate with no elastic stretching found in traditional ankle straps. Found on the Atlas binding.a

YEAR ZERO

Before we design the new binding and product innovations each year, we take a moment to look back and see what existing technologies we can improve from the past. Year Zero represents starting each season with a solid foundation, so our new innovation can be built upon success.
