Why we chose the Bent Metal Forte Snowboard Bindings: This new kid on the block has been stuffed full of Bent Metal’s most innovative tech.
The Bent Metal Forte is your one binding to do it all. A versatile midflex pairs with durable construction to create a binding that’s comfortable from first lifts until last, day after day, all season long. The Forte is a new addition to the team, but already has the air of a well versed classic.
The dictionary defines the term ‘Forte’ as: “A thing at which someone excels”. The crew at Mervin MFG have been in the biz for over three decades, manufacturing top notch snowboard gear and pushing for more sustainable production methods. You could argue that this is, quite literally, their forte.
“The Forte is a new addition to the team, but already has the air of a well versed classic”
The Bent Metal Forte is built around a two-piece aluminium and polymer chassis, in which the heel cup slides back and forth to fine tune the sizing. It uses a mini disk inside to reduce contact with the board to lessen the interruptions in its natural flex pattern. They’re compatible with both 2×4 inserts and the channel system, so whatever way you ride, you’re all set with the Forte.
