Calling a pair of your bindings ‘the Solution’ is quite a claim – but not one that Bent Metal hasn’t earned. Granted, they aren’t the answer for everyone, but if you’ve been looking for an absolute powerhouse that harnesses space-age tech, then the Bent Metal Solution is definitely a model to think about.
Fans of carbon will love these; there’s tons of it here (in a manner of speaking, of course; carbon is notoriously lightweight). The highback is pretty darn rigid as a result, so it’ll respond as soon as you engage your heel edge.
“A firm, responsive platform that doesn’t leave your toe-bones rattling… the Bent Metal Solution bindings are perfect for the gnar”
Underneath your foot is one of Bent Metal’s custom ‘Drive Plates’. This removable footbed is packed with tech, layered up in a similar way to a snowboard. There’s a wood core sandwiched between two layers of carbon, which in turn sit between a topsheet and base material. The whole thing is held in a nylon frame, finished off with an EVA foam footbed.
The result is a firm, responsive platform that doesn’t leave your toe-bones rattling, making the Bent Metal Solution bindings perfect for the gnar. THose who like to mix up their riding style day-to-day will surely prefer the Bent Metal Joint or Bent Metal Transfer, but for serious hell-for-carbon types then these are the ones to get.
