Researching your first pair of bindings is an easy step to overlook. Get them right and you’ll hardly notice they’re there. Get them wrong, however, and your whole setup becomes compromised. Head’s NX Fay I bindings take care of everything for you – comfort, response, customisation and a price point to boot.
The ’Auto-Open’ toe strap will come as a breath of fresh air for anyone who’s gone through the struggle of trying to strap in with four pieces of plastic trapped underfoot. With the NX Fay I, the toe straps hinge open from the baseplate, like wings, leaving the footbed essentially clear of clutter when stepping in.
“There’s still enough performance packed in to make this a solid all-rounder for progressing your riding across the whole mountain”
The oversized ’Easy Grip’ buckles, too, make ratcheting up a breeze, even on the days when the thick mitts are out.
There’s still enough performance packed in to make this a solid all-rounder for progressing your riding across the whole mountain. The 35% glass-reinforced base plate ensures responsive power transmission between the boot and board as you build in speed and confidence.
It seems, however, that Head’s key focus was to pack as much comfort into that price point as possible. 3D moulded, padded straps, toe and heel cushioned pads and a women’s specific shaped highback are all designed to eliminate any pressure spots, pinch points, or foot fatigue for pain-free progression.
And to give newcomer snowboarders the confidence to experiment with different tweaks and adjustments, Head have made the NX Fay I completely tool-free for adjusting on the fly.
