Why We Chose The Jones Orion: Holey highbacks, Batman – this new easy-going option from Jones is already the star of the show.
The Jones Orion is ‘the playful freeride binding’, according to the brand. Those aren’t two words you tend to see together very often, as most people still associate freeriding – especially where Jones is concerned – with first-descent, bone-rattling madness. Of course, that’s only a small part of what the backcountry has to offer, and the Jones Orion is here for the pillow-bashing, pow-field-cruising, Cheshire-cat-grinning good times. And when there’s no fluffy stuff around, it’ll do a great job in the park.

Who Is The Jones Orion For?
Purpose-wise, this sails pretty close to the popular Jones Mercury, so if you rate that model then you’ll love the Jones Orion. It’s geared a little more towards comfort and funboarding, but otherwise is aimed at those who want to explore the whole mountain with a freestyle eye.
