For the female rider looking to take their riding to higher levels and progress to new parts of the mountain, whilst keeping their life savings safely in the bank, Nidecker have come through with the all-new Kaon-W binding.

Like all of the Swiss brand’s bindings for 2021, the Kaon-W has been completely redesigned from the ground up, and comes with bang-up-to-date, fresh-from-the-design-room heelcups, highbacks, foot-straps and EVA-pads that, together, promise “ultimate performance and fit”. Whilst that might sound like a wallet-shrinking proposition, the Kaon-W offers it for a pretty remarkable 180 quid. Yep, you’re right to let these guys hold your attention.

Once you’ve peeled your peepers away from that pricetag, what you’ll most likely gaze upon are Nidecker’s genuinely eye-catching modern innovations, which the Kaon-W is crammed full of. Innovations like the Hexo Toecap – a hinged honeycomb pattern that’s all about formfitting the toebox of your boot – and the ExoFrame ankle strap, which also promises to hug your boot perfectly, but comes with a suspended ExoSpine to lock you in and deliver just as much performance as it does comfort.

Speaking of comfort, that asymmetrical Hadron-Highback you’re now checking out? Asymmetry is a mast to which Nidecker have really nailed their colours this year, with it appearing right across their offerings – boards, boots and bindings alike – in 2021. Here it helps fulfil not only a perfect fit to your boot, but a smoother balance of support. It’s a mega little detail that works a treat on top of the tough, smooth and efficient glass-filled nylon Axis.N1-Series baseplate these babies are built on.

Yep, it looks the part, but acts the part too. Looks, we’re unashamed to say, do play a big part in why we’ve fallen for these all-day, all-mountain workhorse bindings too, what with that black-fade-to-pink looking mean as hell and punk as f*ck.
