It’s important the binding fits the snowboard boot correctly. What do you do to make sure the fit is OK?
We have 3 sizes and adjustable tooless heelcup. With our bond tooless technology it is possible to adjust totally the binding to the boot without using any tool (heelcup, straps and hiback too, a lot of different combinations).
Which factories do you use for production, what country? Where do you do the assembly?
China mainly, except fo the carbon hiback made and assembled in Italy.
