Eiki’s Pro Model Bindings compliment his legend status. He opted for Flatback Highbacks for maximum flexibility in the air and on jibs. The Miller Straps compliment this flex with their pre-curved, perforated construction. Built up around the new AERON base, these bindings are ready for anything.
Switchback bindings are probably the most versatile bindings you can find. The idea behind it is to make your setup as easily adjustable as possible.. and that without tools of course. It is not without reason they are referred to as "the smart binding setup". Made up of four components (baseplate, padding, straps, and highback), you can modify or upgrade the bindings to match changes in conditions, style or performance, anytime, in seconds.
Eiki Helgason personally designed the Flatbacks for tip-to-tail mobility and heel-to-toe response. The minimal curvature makes them super flexible for jibs and grabs, while the tall height supports high speed carves and hefty landings. They are anatomically shaped and have adjustable forward lean to dial in your desired responsiveness.
The AERON base is the result of 3 years of hardcore R&D. Switchback has created a stronger and lighter base using an industry first binding construction method, overmolding forged aluminum with the highest grade polyamide Nylon. With a smaller disc, smaller footprint and toolless size adjustability, Switchback now offers unparalleled fit regardless of boot brand and size.
The Miller straps are constructed from a TPU mesh that molds to fit very closely, providing a very secure hold with any boot. At the same time, these straps promote flex with their soft mesh build.
Switchback Bindings is the brainchild of the legendary Helgason brothers, and it presents a whole new way of looking at snowboard bindings. They are the world’s first fully customizable binding, made to give riders the chance to adapt their bindings to their own personal riding style. The main aim of the company, as with all things Helgason, is to create products that make snowboarding more fun.
