The perfect fit for women's snowboarding. Women's specific sizing and materials combined with Prime performance to create the most responsive, functional and - most important - fun binding to date. Turn your hardest on your favorite board for the day, every day. Plus, once you're ready to split into the backcountry, these bindings will be ready to take you there.
Included: Bindings and Splitboard Interface
The Active Joining Technology consists of 4 wide pre-loaded contact points that load the bindings to the board enabling direct power transfer to the edges. This avoids energy loss and offers an instant response.
The Air Flow Highback design features an optimized strength-to-weight ratio and is designed specifically for split boarding. It comes with a medium flex and is Flex-Lock compatible. Ride stride forward lean offers a ride and a stride mode on the bindings. With the stride mode, a negative 8 degree forward lean angle is possible, which allows you to glide further with every step. In ride mode, a preset forward lean between zero and 20 degrees provides better leverage on your heelside turns.
The Dupont Zytel Chassis was engineered to flex without sacrificing response. Its open construction, in addition, allows the board to twist naturally under the binding. Trussed sidewalls increase heel to toe stiffness. A precision sleeved pivot on the binding in combination with the use of active joining technology in tour mode delivers the ultimate experience in edge control and the smoothest stride. The baseplate offers a 2-Stage Dampening: Stage 1 consists in EVA footbeds and neoprene contact pads for fine bump absorption, while Stage 2 consists in Zytel Floating Toestay sits above the top of your snowboard, for a larger bump absorption.
With Power Link, you can get your binding out of ride mode in the easiest way by an ergonomic activation lever, which allows you to remove your binding or engage it with one simple motion.
Tired of foot pain and numb feet from your straps? The AirForm ankle strap conforms to your boot with independent compression pods, eliminating pressure points and allowing for pinch point free flex. Keep your feet happy and boots snug in your bindings while touring and riding. Made from Dupont Hytrel, the AirForm straps will shave weight and save your feet.

The wide support cradle increases tour mode rigidity, while the offset cradle allows snow to clear during entry.The quick release touring bracket allows for quickest and simplest transition and no removable parts ensure you won't loose any key components! Independent sleeves rotate freely on a fixed through axle (similar to a bike axle) for the stiffest and smoothest touring pivot.
