The Joint 2021 combines Bent Metal's standard of high performance components and a Mervin Made Flex Control Drive Plate for more all-mountain action at a lower price. The Drive Plate made of boron fibre, combined with a nylon highback and heel cup, offers a responsive yet forgiving all-mountain performance.
Nylon highback has a medium flex, perfect for all-mountain snowboarding. The Cube is located on the back of the highback. This allows you to quickly and easily set your Forward Lean.
The Flex Control Drive Plates consist of different layers that give the binding power and flex. The Boron Fibre Drive Plate has a medium flex and consists of an upper layer of EVA foam and a layer of nylon fibres at the bottom. The layers in between consist of ecological top and bottom sheets, two layers of boron fibres and a poly core. This gives the base the soft to medium flex and the necessary reactivity. This creates a medium flex pattern, for a variety of conditions and riding styles. The one-piece chassis is made of a polymer that dampens vibrations for a smooth ride. The included Axis Disc gives you maximum freedom of adjustment and is compatible with all common mounting systems.
The Mobility Light Strap is very comfortable and lightweight. The 3D structure and TPU elastomer material provide a cushioned, forgiving riding experience. The Light Form Toe Straps give your feet support and provide a dynamic fit and performance. The hardened Forged Aluminium buckles allow the binding to be put on and off quickly and smoothly.

A small contender on the snowboarding market, Bent Metal have made a name for themselves in the last few years with their patented flex control drive plates. Handcrafted in a zero waste, eco-friendly factory in the US, their focus lies on providing you with the best binding possible. Thanks to their location they can take an idea, turn it into a prototype and take it up on the hill all in one day. That's what we call dedication to the sport!
