NOW - PILOT - SNOWBOARD BINDINGS - MENS
If you're cranking down on this pair of Now Pilot Snowboard Bindings, make sure the airspace is clear for liftoff! With their proprietary Skate-Tech design, you'll waste less energy on your carves and keep fluidity in your runs. That means you'll be seeking out new and challenging terrain, adding extra time in the air and keeping your tracks polished. With their specially-designed Flex Hinge 2.0 Highback, crank the forward lean as much as you'd like because a crease in the upper highback eliminates calf-bite without sacrificing heel-side response. Highcup compatibility allows you to switch out the highback for a no-back insert to rejuvenate your rail-riding and pow-slashing. Embrace the unknown and let the Pilots guide you to the goods.

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.
Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Ability LevelIntermediate-AdvancedThe majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.Flex Rating: Medium
Flex RatingMediumThe amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.Binding Style: Strap
