We quite liked the neatness that was the men’s range of Bent Metal bindings. Logic = soft, Solution = stiff, Transfer = halfway between the two. Now there’s these, the Bent Metal Joint snowboard bindings – but don’t worry, they’re a very welcome addition.
Flex-wise, the Bent Metal Joint is stiffer than the Logic, but less so than the Transfer. It shares some tech with both (the same Nylon highback as the latter, the same ankle strap ad the former), but the result is a binder with a personality all of its own.
“Two layers of boron fibres deliver a Goldilocks-porridge ride; not to soft, not too firm”
As with all Bent Metal bindings, the Joint has a ‘Drive Plate’ that sits directly under your foot. This has a sandwich construction, similar to a snowboard, that allows it to be fine-tuned for just the right amount of flex and response. In the case of the Joint, two layers of boron fibres deliver a Goldilocks-porridge ride; not to soft, not too firm.
