The task of choosing the right snowboard bindings can seem daunting because of all of the choices available to you, but it’s fairly simple when broken down. There are three basic things to consider when choosing your next set. The first is whether you are buying men’s or women’s snowboard bindings, as there are specific features made for each sex. For example, men’s are usually larger in size. The next thing to consider is the size. They usually come in sizes from small to extra large, and the size needed depends on your foot and boot size. The last thing to consider is if you want a stiff or soft high back, and your riding style helps you make that choice.
Deciding if you want a stiff or soft high back depends on your riding style. If you’re a freestyle boarder and into riding the parks, catching air, and sliding rails, you are definitely going to want a soft high back as it will give you more mobility and comfort when performing tricks and bombing off jumps. If you’re a big mountain rider and into high speeds and less worried about pulling of tricks and jumps, you’re definitely going to want to go with a stiff high back.
The only other thing to consider when selecting new bindings is foot position and compatibility with your board. Since most boards have pre-drilled holes so they can mount many different types on their boards, however, be sure yours are compatible with your board before you purchase them, and vice versa. By using our snowboard package builder you can be sure your equipment will be compatible. There are also base plates available which allow you to customize your foot positions by getting just the right angles on your board.
