The new Jones Apollo binding is designed for the expert freerider who demands unmatched edge control, comfort and response. What sets the Apollo apart is the Jones’ exclusive Carbon Flax Highback that blends the ECO-performance of Flax with the lightweight, torsional stiffness of Carbon. Matching the premium highback with NOW Skate Tech technology created a binding that will respond to your every muscle twitch with lightning-fast accuracy. The Apollo can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushings and swapping the Flip-It ankle straps. Surf mode offers maximum tweakability, Freeride mode offers maximum response.
The new Asym Flax / Carbon Wide Back is a composite high back featuring an extended width upper half for improved turn response. No more falling out of your highback on hard toe-side turns. The Wide Back keeps your boot top locked into your binding driving more power to your edges as you initiate a turn. The Wide Back is also pre-rotated five degrees to better follow your leg angles as you bend and pivot. The multi-position forward lean block offers rock-solid support in any setting and the Flax /3K Carbon Fiber construction blends the ultralight stiffness of carbon with the superior sustainability of natural Flax fibre.
The kingpin creates a fulcrum that magnifies edge to edge energy transfer through leverage. It´s made from stainless steel with 4mm Allen key hardware. The hanger creates a lever that pivots on Kingpin. It transfers energy input from straps to bushings and onto board edges. The Baseless design allows for even board flex. It´s made from Nylon reinforced with 30% fibreglass. The bushings apply energy directly to edge and dampens board chatter. It also offers a customizable dampening system.
The Binding offers 3D Toe Straps with EVA combo and an tool-less ankle strap adjuster. The ankle strap allows for switching between freeride and surf mode. The straps offer EVA padding.
