Where the Select binding caters to the higher levels of freestyle performance, the Brigade caters to just about everyone else. A softer flex, and only slightly fewer premium components make this one of NOW’s more affordable options to screw onto your all-mountain or freestyle deck.
Though it doesn’t come with the same add-ons and customisation goodies as the Select Pro, the Brigade still shares a lot of the same freestyle versatility. As anyone who’s picked up a NOW binding before will know, it comes fully equipped with their game-changing Skate Tech, which sees a central ‘Post’ and skate-inspired kingpin act as the central pivot point of the bindings to slightly tilt between the heel and toe side contact bushings. No need to crank the straps and cut the blood off from your toes, all the response happens directly underfoot where, with NOW, you can more efficiently transfer the energy directly out to the edge.

The FM Highback is the softest one available from the line and has incisions designed to increase the flex and allow your boot to move and tweak more freely from inside the bindings. That’s coupled with the Asym Sieva heel straps, which not only provide more support on the lateral side but can be alternated with the other binding and turned upside down to essentially create two different flex patterns in one strap. Genius.
The Brigade isn’t reserved exclusively for inside the park ropes, but they’re best suited to a rider who wants to spend as much time the air and switching things up. If all-mountain freestyle is your thing, join the Brigade.
