2013/14 Snowboard Binding Trends At A Glance
We caught up with the industry’s top binding designers for a candid look at the trends, forecasts, and fanfare shaping next year’s lines:
1. Relentless Refinement—Consider this the year of incremental improvements. Brands are reducing the footprint of baseplates, expanding canting options, and refining their straps. The objectives: decrease weight, improve comfort, and enhance board feel.
2. Focus on the Flex—Highback flex and support are also enjoying greater attention as brands turn to new materials and construction techniques to drive innovation.
