Don’t let that credit card-friendly pricetag lure you into a false sense of security – there really isn’t much else that’s small-time about Nidecker’s big-on-the-fun yet easy-on-the-bank Muon-X bindings.

As anyone who’s stared down a Swiss red after a week of hand-holding an instructor on the blues knows, taking the steps towards an intermediate level unarguably requires a big shot of bravery, because you better believe it’ll leave you with some great bruises and battle scars to show for it. Knowing this all too well, Nidecker have made the Muon X with the hungry-for-it fledgling rider in mind – they’ve struck the sweet spot between a ride that instils a level confidence but also allows for progressive leaps and bounds, too.

“Apart from the price, there’s nothing small-time about Nidecker’s big-on-the-fun yet easy-on-the-bank bindings”

They’ve done it by using their tough glass-filled nylon Axis.N1-Series baseplates and heelcups and Nylon Hadron-Hibacks, that work together to give a flex and responsiveness that encourages and allows for the next step. Meanwhile, the cushy EVA heels, ComfortFit ankle-straps and butter-smooth Proton Ratchets together keep strapping in super easy and stress-free, meaning less energy needs to go into worrying about keeping up with your crew, and more can go into going harder, faster, bigger and bolder than before.

The all-new Muon-X bindings also have what’s come to be the tell-tale sign of Nidecker handiwork in 2021 – an asymmetrical design. True to form, this choice is a fully functional one and not only there to look futuristic, as it provides an optimal energy transfer that, when combined with the rockered corners of the baseplate, makes for a more natural flex, and greater precision and comfort in movement wherever you are on the mountain. Put simply, if you’re ready to break out into new territory for the first time, and want to do it for a crazy-good price, these are the bindings that’ll get you there.
