NOW Vetta 2018-2019 Women’s Snowboard Bindings Review

This medium-flexing model is mellower than the NOW Conda, but is no shrinking violet. The NOW Vetta women’s snowboard bindings offer premium tech in an attractive all-mountain package, at a price you’ll love.

While the NOW Vetta’s specs are more modest, they have just the right stuff for their intended purpose. Fast buckles, comfy straps and plenty of EVA cushioning; it’s hard to fault the features.

“These do a great job of eliminating unwanted pressure points”

The hinged highback has plenty of flex to it (though not too much), and has been positioned to better match the shape of your legs. A day spent on butters, shiftys and tweaks can start to take its toll, but these do a great job of eliminating unwanted pressure points.

As with all NOW bindings, Skate-Tech is present and correct here. Designed to resemble a skateboard truck, it allows the chassis of the binding to rock back and forth as you ride. On the heel edge, for example, the highback can tilt back slightly, with rubber bushings absorbing vibrations and evenly spreading the energy to the edge. Likewise with the ankle strap when you’re on your toes.

It’s a subtle effect, but one that the team at NOW reckons will elevate the NOW Vetta snowboard bindings ahead of its price-point competitors. To find out if they’re right, check out what our testers had to say below – then try out a pair for yourself.

Tester’s Verdict


“The Vetta is a supremely comfortable pair of bindings that leaves no hot spots of pressure anywhere on your feet. The straps are really comfortable; I like them because they’re not too thick, so they are really malleable around the boot.

“The Skate-Tech kept every transition feeling very smooth”

The response and control that the Skate-Tech delivers is second to none, and it’s effortless to transfer the weight from edge to edge. It gives a very ‘rolly’ effect which I liked because it kept every transition feeling very smooth.”

Tester’s Verdict


“I found the Vetta bindings to be quite soft, which made them very comfortable for the feet. There was no cramping at all, which was really good considering I rode these for a whole day.

“There was no cramping at all, which was really good considering I rode these for a whole day”

The downfall of the comfort is that the bindings are soft and light, which doesn’t really allow for fast riding. If you’re a light girl with a light board, these bindings will definitely not give you that extra speed, so if that’s what you’re looking for I would not recommend these.

But if speed is not your thing (or if you already have a heavy board) I’d say that the Now Vetta bindings provide for a very feet friendly ride.”
