The Now Pilot Snowboard Bindings are designed for all-mountain riders who are always on the hunt for that perfect side hit.

Moderately stiff with a quick, secure, and comfortable strap/buckle system, the NowPilot Snowboard Bindings are the all-mountain freestyle bindings that'll effortlessly knock out all three P's -- Park, Pow and Pipe!

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.

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.
Highback 2.0 w/ Flex Hinge – The new Flex Hinge 2.0 highback features greater lateral support, a redesign and reposition of the Flex Hinge for more support while still dampening chatter, and eliminating calf-bite.
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.
Highcup Compatibility – Compatible with all NOW hangers. Low profile for extra flexibility. Street, park and pow.
