Powder Clip

Anyone that has ridden binding free will tell you that the sensation is second to none, in emulating that surfing feeling on snow. Part of this is because freedom of lower leg movement, and part is the massive reduction in weight.

The problem is that it takes perfect conditions. Deep snow, and open bowls and tree lines, to make the beautiful sweeping turns. If you live and ride somewhere that doesn't have these sots of conditions, "No Board" or "Yukiita" boards just don't work great. Anytime you bottom out, you crash. If you are in tight trees and need to make hopping turns, or tight manoeuvres, you can't, and inbounds, when you're going from powder stash to powder stash, with groomer runs between them, you spend most of your day walking down the mountain.

The Powder Clip provides that "binding free" sensation, while still keeping you connected to the board. 

The entire base is flexible, and moves with your boot on the deck surface. This allows your boot to roll fore and aft, and heel to toe, much in the same way it would without a binding, giving maximum lower leg movement and control. A single, boot centred strap holds your boot onto the board, while allowing it maximum movement, without any slipping feel. A small "highback" provides just enough support to carve the groomer runs between powder stashes.

With a single centred strap you'd think you're going to have heel lift, but you don't. Because the binding follows your boot, you never have that sensation of your boot moving around and lifting inside the chassis.

Coming in at about 450g (when used with the single strap, and 550g with two straps), it's half to a third of the weight of most "normal" bindings.

Once you ride these, traditional bindings are going to feel like you've got ski boots bolted to your feet!

The Powder clip has a front foot 0-45 deg adjustment, in either CW (goofy) or CCW (regular) format, and need to be ordered accordingly. The rear foot binding adjusts from -20 to 20 deg so can be ridden posi posi, or duck.
You centre your boot over the board by adjusting the heel cup back or forward on the chassis. Adjust width of binding by moving the heel cup to the outside of the Base plate for Large feet. The boot top strap can be moved from a more traditional ankle strap position to the centre of the chassis, and the toe strap removed entirely, for a more natural "binding free feel" in powder (riding with one strap only).

***REGULAR (Left Foot Forward) BINDING IS SOLD OUT AND BACK ORDERED TO EARLY MARCH***
