Product Info

This is your Pilot speaking, thanking you for flying Now Air. Make sure all highbacks are stowed in an upright position and please prepare for takeoff. The Now Pilot Snowboard Bindings are freestyle bindings with a loose surfy feel thanks to Now's signature Skate Tech. They come with your choice of hard or medium bushings for either tighter response and big hit absorption, or mellow cruising to help you smear and stunt your way down the mountain.

Product Details

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Baseplate

Flushcup TechnologyDesigned to hold boots even without a highback, these have a flush inner surface where the highback meets the heelcup. This gives direct energy transfer between boot and binding.

Hanger 2.0 Nylon Reinforced with 30% Glass FiberThis baseless design allows for uninterrupted board flex, with rigid I-Beam wall sections that transfer energy to the board's edges.

PostNylon with 50% Glass Fiber

4x4 DiscNylon with 50% Glass Fiber

Channel CompatibleSold Separately

Highback

Flex Hinge 2.0 HighbackPre-rotated 10 degrees, with a higher medial side to follow your leg angles, a lateral hook for added support, and a flex hinge that dampens chatter and eliminates calf-bite. 15mm Higher than the original Flex Hinge.

Straps

Freestyle Flipit Ankle StrapsNow has added two layers of EVA to this strap. It is cushy, yet supportive, and has traditional stitch-and-turn construction with an injected spine sandwiched between EVA and fabric.

3D Contour Toe StrapsIf it's grip you're after, look no further. This strap is not only super grippy, but it is also moldable and can be used either on the tip or top of your boot.

NOW Tool-less Adjuster Straps

Buckles

PA66-GF Buckle LeversMade with the same high grade nylon and glass fiber blend found in Now posts and discs. This material is light and strong.

Additional Features

Skate TechInspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns, major components of Now's system mimic both the function and description of skateboard trucks. The Hanger powerfully transfers energy input from the straps to the bushings and onto the edges of your board. The Kingpin acts as a fulcrum, magnifying this energy through leverage. Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by the flexing and bending of their baseplate, forcing you to crank your straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer highbacks. This all leads to more foot fatigue and pain. NOW Bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the board's edges. They simply transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable, longer.

Highcup CompatibilityCompatible with all NOW hangers. Low profile for extra flexibility. Street, park and pow.

BushingsAvailable in Medium (45 Shore) and Hard (55 Shore)
