The Salomon Highlander has waltzed into the line in the place of the Defender and has taken up the reins as a high quality, lightweight, all-rounder.
Kitted out with a Shadow Fit heelcup, allowing for more movement down the length of the board and meaning you’re in for a really surfy ride, the extra wiggle room keeps things feeling a bit looser. If you like rock hard binders, then these probably aren’t what you’re looking for.
“The minimalist straps are really pliant and can wrap over the top of your boot without adding pressure points and hotspots”
Two Kevlar strands run through the flexible heelcup, so whilst they’re soft side to side, they’re taut and strong heel to toe. You’ll get the same edge to edge response that you’re used to getting from a traditional binding.
The minimalist straps are really pliant and can wrap over the top of your boot without adding pressure points and hotspots, they also save weight which is always a handy move. They’re easily adjustable so you’re dialled in for the perfect fit no matter your boots.
The highback is cut out strategically to allow for strength where you want it, and flexes more where you need it. Mid-stiff flexing for that predictable all mountain feel, it’s going to have your back from the powder stash to the park lap.
