Basic Snowboarding Equipment : Snowboard Bindings


Choosing bindings. There are a lot of different
bindings out these days. There is a lot of different technology being put into them but
if you are just starting out it is pretty easy to pick out a binding. The first thing
you are going to want to look for is finding a binding that matches your bolt pattern on
your board. Your bolt pattern is usually four bolts or three bolts depending on your board
and you need to go from there and if you go to a shop they will help you out and you need
to pick a size of your binding. They start small, there is medium and then there is large
and then once you go from there you are going to want to fit your binding to your boot and
once you find all the things that work with your board and your boots then you can choose
what type of binding you want but they’re pretty simple and I have a pair of Burton
Cartels here and they have the cap strap on them, low end bindings will have plastic ratchets
and these are metal. These have leather which you don’t need but it just forms better on
your boot. These have really high backs which helps turning a lot. It is all a matter of
preference pretty much. If you know what to look for you’ll know what to buy. Since these
are high end bindings they also have pads on the base so when you land all that shock
doesn’t go up into your legs.
