Striking the ideal balance between lightning-speed response and playful freestyle performance, the IPO Snowboard Binding is a mid-flexing binding designed for ripping anything the mountain throws your way, thanks to its pivoting Skate Tech and Hanger 1. 0 base. Now's Skate Tech features a Hanger 1. 0 base connected to a hinged Kingpin at its center, which acts like turning on a skateboard truck. Sieva ankle straps make for a solid, boot-conforming fit, and the 3-D toe strap grabs the front of your boot for a better overall fit and greater response.
