Switchback bindings are the worlds first fully customisable binding system. Each binding consists of 4 components which you can get in 8 different colours, resulting in over 15,000 possible combinations.
Switchback was started as a reaction to all the crazy complex binding systems that are out there. Taking things back to basics, Switchback used the KISS approach to design and production. By Keeping It Simple, Stupid, Switchback eliminated the need for screws on your bindings (apart from the ones to attach them to your board) and this simplicity is what makes them a firm favourite despite only being in business for a year. They also come in bold colours and there is boundless freedom in making sure your bindings look exactly how you want them to look. With over 15,000 possible combinations Switchback bindings can be customised to match your board, your boots, your pants, your jacket and even your Nan’s living room wallpaper (providing your Nan has some pretty bright wallpaper!)
They are totally tool-less so you can switch from riding with highbacks to riding with no highbacks in a matter of seconds. Use highbacks if you want a traditional ride but pop them off if you want a surf-like ride in the powder or if you want to ride the park skate-style.
Switchback is the brainchild of the Helgasons and as with everything the Helgasons do the aim is to make sure the product delivers a performance that makes snowboarding fun. The Switchback team also features Gulli Gudmundsson and Ethan Morgan so you know the bindings must be good.
