Good Bindings! Responsive and comfy.
I’m blown away! They both look better in real life and the whole new system, it’s awesome! So good and feels so solid at the same time! Every lock feels more secure also than on my old ones. These are the bomb! Can’t wait to try them out! And yes, you can get any stance you want in them also by using the two closest inserts, perfect! (unlike Burton Re:flex with no adjustments at all) But wow, well done guys, these binders are killer!
I love these! They are lighter and stronger than their predecessors and even more responsive. What a great idea being able to adjust the size of the binding with some less obvious benefits being that if you change your boots they may come up bigger or smaller, it is much more versatile for shops to stock and resale value will be boosted as you don't limit your market to only those with the same size feet as you. Go grab a pair you won't regret it
Been rocking switchbacks for years and the new adjustability will make even better for my friends with wild boot sizes. Ps. If you haven't removed your highbacks on a pow day, yer missing out.
I've been a die hard Union rider for quite a few years but I decided I got sick and tired of setting up bindings for a certain board only to reset them again when I wanted to use them on another board. I was looking for that set and forget style binding like Old Skool Burton's. I found out about Switchback from a friend and ended up buying a pair when he suggested them. Best choice I ever made too! Switchback is unlike any binding you've tried before. Being Modular you can easily tune them to your riding style with out the use of tools except to attach them to your board. Changing straps, High backs, Base Plate pads are breeze, add stiffness by upgrading your high back, or reduce that same stiffness by buying a shorter or softer high back, tune the padding for jibbing, canted, or just plain flat. The choice is really yours and Switchback sells you any parts you need at a decent price. One part everyone should try is the "No Back" insert. It frees up the binding to make it feel like surfing! Try these out you can't go wrong, light, strong, reliable, best part is easy to upgrade and custom tune, all without having to carry a binding tool. Thanks Switchback love em!!
Introducing a new platform. The AERON base is the result of 3 years of hardcore R&D. A stronger and lighter base using an industry first binding construction method; overmolding forged aluminum with highest grade polyamide Nylon. With a smaller disc, smaller footprint and tool-less size adjustability, it offers unparalleled fit regardless of boot brand and size.
The forged aluminum power rods help transfer pressure from toe to heelside with minimal power loss. The aluminum rods are overmolded inside the heel cup to form an indestructible bond with no need for extra hardware.
The forged aluminum heel enforcement is overmolded inside the heel cup to form an indestructible bond. Switchback is the first binding company to use this technology to create a unique blend of materials, offering the an optimal combination of weight, strength and flex.
We put the padding exactly where you need it. The adjustable toe padding works like a gas pedal and cushioning at the same time thanks to the dual density foam in the toe area. It's soft enough to cushion impact and rm enough to not lose power transferred to the toe edge
Cushioning under the heel is crucial. If you ever had a heel bruise in the past then you know what we are talking about. That is why we designed the footpad to have full boot to board EVA under your heel bone.
Our patented pin system eliminates the need for hardware to hold down and change position of the ankle strap. It makes switching straps and adjusting strap position a breeze and saves weight. No tools needed.
The strap ladders are shaped to bend out before they wrap around your boot. This design tweak spreads the pressure of the strap evenly, eliminating pressure points and makes it easier to put your boot in your binding because the strap opens to the outside.
Our custom ratchets get the job done every time. The triple tooth ratchet saves you time strapping in so you can get going as fast as possible. We use the highest grade forged aluminum levers and strong spring system to make sure they keep performing season after season.
Our straps are molded in a way that eliminates pressure points. Both of our strap options are designed with ergonomics in mind, but executed with different materials to offer unique riding experiences. No matter which one you pick, you won't have to worry about comfort.
Our patented pin system eliminates the need for hardware to hold down and change position of the toe strap. It makes switching straps and adjusting strap position a breeze and saves weight. No tools needed.
The toe ratchet has triple teeth to make each action super effective so you can strap in and start riding as fast as possible.
The lighter and reduced footprint of our new minidisk allows you to better feel your boards flex, allowing for a more natural power transfer. Fully compatible with all mounting systems.
The size of the new AERON base is adjustable without tools, enabling you to fine-tune the fit to your boot. The forward and rear sections are independent of each other, so whatever size you chose, you will always be centered in the binding.
One of Switchback's most unique features is the effortless and tool-less highback attachment. This enables you to easily remove your highback when packing, or switching to a different highback to match riding conditions. Try riding pow without highbacks for a distinct riding experience.
Switchback's signature hole-in-the-highback design optimizes strength vs flex. When pressure is applied to the heelside you get maximum power transfer, but when your boot flexes sideways the binding flexes with you.
Switchback's signature heelcup locks the highback in the upright position, but a small force like the chairlift hitting your binding will release the highback so you won't get stuck.
We moved the forward lean adjustment from the traditional location on top of your heelcup to the natural pivot point at the inner highback mount. Adjusting the position of the hardware up or down adjusts the forward lean angle of the highback, retaining it's position. No more gaps.
All of our Switchback highback models feature a comfortable and durable EVA cushioning layer between your leg and the highback frame to keep you riding all day.
