“I still remember the first time I tried on a pair of Rome Katana bindings – it was like everything just fell into place. The bindings just worked, and I felt like I was riding better than ever before.
The customised option the Katana’s offer is great because it gives the rider the ability to adjust the bindings to their preferred style, which is all great. However, this is not the only good thing about the bindings and what I really value with them is the power and precision they give your riding. I always feel like I’ve got so much board control when strapped into these, and the stability and sturdiness of the bindings gives me the power and confidence to charge super fast.
They’re also really comfy, but as a woman, the highback has at times felt slightly too high and thus made my calves hurt, which is the only complaint I’ve had – including the price until I realized, the Katana’s are pretty much bulletproof.”

“The fan favorite Katana is the binding of choice for riders across the globe who want a freakishly lightweight binding with more customization options than a Subway menu. Built on our industry leading AsymWrap platform, which provides unprecedent board feel while creating a unique surfy feel, the Katana defies convention.
If you haven’t seen AuxTech in action, you really need to check out the Katana’s strap package. Think of AuxTech as a network of small hinges, when pressure is applied as the strap is tightened, the hinges open uniformly and distribute pressure for a pressure point free riding experience with next level locked-in hold.
On a personal note, I was inventorying my gear storage lair this spring, when I realized that I do in fact, have at least 6 pairs of Katana’s from different seasons. So yeah, I guess it’s a bit of a once you’re a Katana rider, you don’t really go back.”
