The Jones Mercury binding is made for the all-mountain rider who is looking for excellent edge hold and still wants the freedom to tweak. The Mercury is the medium-stiff flex binding that will respond instantly to your every move thanks to NOW Skate Tech technology. Whether in surf mode or freeride mode, the Mercury does it all.
The Control Flex Highback is designed for balanced response and flex. The asym highback has a wider lateral side for added toe side turn support. The stiff middle spine is for solid carving performance, while flexible side edges add freestyle performance. Of course, the forward lean can be adjusted tool-less.
The Mercury scores with NOW Skate Tech. The “Hanger” acts as a lever that transfers energy input from the straps to the “Bushings” and onto the board edges. The “Kingpin” acts as the fulcrum for the “Hanger” and magnifies the energy transfer through leverage. Traditional bindings lose energy when the baseplate flexes and bends unevenly. The energy loss forces you to crank your straps tighter and ride with more forward lean to gain the same control. Uneven pressure and tight straps lead to more foot fatigue and pain. By evenly pivoting over the “Post”, the middle of your board flexes more uniformly and your energy inputs are focused directly on your edge. Your feet stay more relaxed and more comfortable because the bindings transfer power to the board with less work.
The Flip-It Strap allows you to interchange the ankle straps between the left and right binding to create custom response. Ride with the ankle straps in Freeride mode for more lateral support and board response or flip the straps into Surf Mode for solid heel support, but more ankle flexibility for getting loose.
