Ride Snowboards cool new Reversible Ankle Strap provides two riding positions. Ride with the stiff part of the strap on the top for a more aggressive feel or swap the straps so the soft part is on top for more flexibility and lateral movement. The A-Series aluminum chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum with less rigidity than previous designs. The cored nylon highback reduces weight while still providing a responsive ride. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. Integrated rubber PODS make for an even smoother ride and the TPU basepad damps out high-speed vibrations. The A-8 is designed for an advanced rider looking for all-mountain performance. We have these bindings on demo if you want to try before you buy.
