As part of Mervin Manufacturing, the people of Bent Metal know what matters and have shown this with the Upshot. The women bindings are light, provide the best support and are so comfortable, you wish your shred day would never end.
The Urethane highback is made from soft urethane that flexes with your boot for a smooth response for freestyle snowboarding in any terrain. On the back of the highback, the Cube offers a fast and easy forward lean adjustment that incorporates urethane dampening.
Flex Control Drive Plates are built from a number of layers to provide the right amount of power and flex. The Upshot features a Calcium Bi-Ax Drive Plate that has a medium-soft flex. It is constructed from a top layer EVA foam footbed to provide dampening and a fibre reinforced nylon carriage at the bottom. The layers between consist of an ecological top and bottom sheet, two layers of Biax fibreglass and a poly core. This gives the base the soft to medium flex and the necessary response. The Pivot Discs are compatible with 2x4 and The Channel™ mounting system. The reduced size increases the true board flex.
The Bent Metal Upshot comes with the Mobility Ankle Straps. The lightweight, 3D structured TPU Elastomer straps are comfortable and ensure a smooth and forgiving ride. The Light Form Toe Straps provide a moulded grip to secure the strap on your boot. They feature a dynamic fit, are very lightweight and give you maximum performance. The Forged Aluminium buckles allow for super smooth entry and release that does not break down.
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!
