Snowboard Bindings Explained

Of course, there are several types of snowboard bindings.  Today, straps are the standard.  Flow, K2, and Gnu also make several variations of "flow-in" bindings.

Flex

Flex is possibly the most important thing to consider when selecting the right set of snowboard bindings.  Softer flexing bindings are more geared towards freestyle and park riding while stiffer bindings are typically reserved for freeriding.  Still, flex remains largely a matter of personal preference.  Flex is measured on a scale of 1 to 10...with 1 being the softest and 10 being the stiffest.  You can view each binding's respective flex rating on each individual product detail page.

Note: It is important that the flex of your bindings line up with the flex of both your snowboard and your snowboard boots.

Sizing

What binding size should I choose?  Binding sizing varies from brand to brand.  Please check the size chart under each binding's individual product detail page.

Highbacks

The highback is the plate at the rear of the binding that supports your heel and calf.  Different kinds of bindings have different highbacks.  If you are more of a freestyle rider, it is typically recommended that you go with a smaller, more flexible highback for extra maneuverability.  Aggressive freeriders will want higher, stiffer highbacks for extra control.
