NOW Pilot Mens Snowboard Bindings
The Now Pilot Snowboard Bindings fit right in with to the three p’s of snowboarding: park, pow and pipe. NOW’s carefully crafted Hanger 2.0 Baseplate creates a firm boot fit with fiberglass reinforcement, and a medium stiff flex and interchangeable freestyle straps let you get sendy with the best of ’em.
Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Hanger 2.0 – Nylon reinforced with 30% fiberglass. Offers a widened heelcup footprint that ups the ante on boot-fitting compatibility, a drop-down medial wall for added lateral flexibility, and snow clearing channels to prevent ice build-up underneath the highback legs.
Highcup Compatibility – Compatible with all NOW hangers. Low profile for extra flexibility.
4X4 Disc | 50% GF Nylon / 50% Fiberglass – Light and strong, with minimal board fixture. Channel disc not included but available for purchase.
Post is 50% GF Nylon
Bushings | Hard (55 Shore) – As the main contact point to the board, the bushings apply energy while diffusing board chatter. Dual injection, quick-snap connection to Hanger.
Flex Hinge 2.0 – Flex Rating 6 – This highback has a higher medial side to follow leg angles, with a lateral hook for added support. It is pre-rotated 10 degrees, and 15 mm higher than the original Flex Hinge.
Freestyle Flipit Straps – The NOW Flipit strap made its debut on the Drive binding two years ago, and has been a staple amongst freeriders and riders who are seeking support and convenience on the fly. The Flipit strap is a traditional stitch-and-turn construction with an injected spine sandwiched between EVA and fabric.
3D Toe Straps EVA Combo
NOW Tool-Less Adjuster Straps
Buckles 2.0 – NOW’s Buckles 2.0 have been redesigned with stronger levers and upgraded springs. These new buckles can take more abuse than ever and offers durability and peace of mind.
Skate Tech – Inspired 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.
