The Magnum is the first adjustable heel cup binding by Fix, featuring customizable sizing at both the heel and footbed for superior boot positioning over the centre of the board. The balance of strength, weight and dampening makes this one of the most requested bindings by the Fix team.
Fix is the only binding company that can claim to be 100% regrind free. Regrind is the excess waste from the injection moulding process that gets ground up and injected back into the products. Fix takes all of the production waste and repurpose it to make a binding box, which can be reused however you want. Store your wax kit, carry your beers to the beach in the summer, or storage for your snowboard video collection.
The Glass Filled Nylon Highback is constructed asymmetrically to line up with your heel edge for a more responsive ride. The raised inside is there to transfer your power better to the board while the deeper outside of the highback gives you space for tweaks and other moves. The upper edge of the highback is softly padded to avoid painful marks on your calves. Glass increases the stiffness of the binding and the general rule of thumb is that the less glass fill, the softer the binding will be. The tool-free forward lean adjuster allows you to adjust your binding easily on the fly without any additional tools.
The Glass Filled Nylon Baseplate consists of the lightweight base and the extruded aluminium heel cup, which easily lets you adjust the binding to your boot for a perfect fit. The material is a mix of fibreglass and nylon, for maximum weight reduction, responsiveness, and shock absorption. The full-length, adjustable EVA Footbed dampens hard impacts and protects your knees and feet with a thick cushion so that they do not get tired, and you can ride longer. To reduce the complexity of the binding, the ladder attachments are fastened without screws - fewer parts, fewer error sources.
Cast aluminum buckles reduce the weight of the binding drastically. These buckles work like a dream and last forever. So soft, so comfortable. The ankle straps feature a memory gel that conforms to your boot like ooze eliminating pressure points while preventing damage to the straps themselves.
