Here’s one for the freestyle fiends looking to get in on the Skate Tech. The NOW select pro is geared purely towards high-level park riders and, comes with a couple handy customisable options.
Skate Tech has garnered a strong reputation in freeriding circles, but arguably has as many strengths when it comes to the kicker and rail lines. Because the technology works along the same lines as a skateboard truck (in fact, the central pivot point’s design was based on a kingpin) it offers a really easy, looser ride from edge to edge. Rather than cranking up on toe straps and pushing your calves into the highbacks, the idea is to very subtly rock from edge to edge via the central hanger and deliver power directly down to the contact bushings for immediate and efficient power transfer.
“All of NOW’s contact bushings are interchangeable, but the full offerings aren’t stocked as standard apart from here”
All of NOW’s contact bushings are interchangeable, but the full offerings aren’t stocked as standard apart from here. The three different rubber densities classed as soft, medium and hard (or in NOW’s technical terminology: Softy, Mid-Chub, and Morning Missile… nice) enable you to dial in the exact response rate and cushioning you want from your binding.
An additional customisation comes in the form of the Highcup, a short, stubby sized highback that you can swap out if you want to get extra loose and tweak out every single trick. This one’s a winner for jibbers and cruisers alike, the Select Pro is already a more mellow flexing offering from NOW, but these interchangeable parts allow for infinitely more options to find your perfect surfy style.
One big change for this year comes with the all-new 3D contour toe straps. Any issues rider’s found in the past with their straps sliding off the end of the boot have been categorically resolved this year.
Anyone could get along with the Select Pros, but freestyle riders, in particular, will love these.
