Retail Buyers Guide: Snowboard Bindings FW20/21
Interviewee: Peter Bauer, Owner & Founder
What are the top three most important products of next year’s line, and why? Please tell us about them, and what makes them the highlights.
Mutant Bindings: Finally Amplid has a binding which really matches the top performance of their boards. Direct power transmission thanks to the aluminum frame and the carbon highback. The injected straps provide a perfect pressure distribution. 5-Tooth-travel buckle ratchets make sure you drop in first. Plus the weight is incredible.
Santos Bindings: The Santos is Amplid’s dependable all-mountain binding with a price tag that won’t break the bank. It’s easy to adjust, so getting that custom-fit-feeling is piece of cake. Underfoot EVA padding provides great shock absorbency and 3-degree canted footbeds give weary knees some rest bite. Injection moulded “Lock-Down Lite” ankle straps offer great support and response with enough mobility for tweaks. Available in any colour you want, so long as it’s black.
