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.
