Bindings

Salomon Hologram 2019-2020 Women’s Snowboard Bindings Review

There are loads of freestyle bindings floating about, so choosing the right pair can be quite overwhelming. Well, let us narrow it down for you – if you’re looking to get a floaty feel that could be compared to skating or surfing, the Salomon Holograms might just be the ones to float your boat. The Salomon Hologram is available for both men and women, with no tech cuts made on the women’s version – so the matching price tag is actually legit.

The ShadowFit heelcup allows you to move more freely while attached to the bindings. This wobbly heelcup may take a bit of getting used to, but once you get the feel for it, it allows for a more natural move than a rigid heelcup would.

If you’re afraid of getting too loose, the Kevlar Quickwire’s got your back. The Kevlar wire that runs through the heelcup allows for improved response and maximum support, while the specially engineered Hologram highback provides even further control and stability. You won’t be expected to sacrifice any of your toe or heel side response for that surfy feel you’ll get with the soft heelcup.

As a treat for those who suffer from cracking knees after a whole day up on the hill, the Salomon Hologram’s footbed is canted by 2.5 degrees. We know it’s not a lot, but it certainly makes a difference. Even the slightest change for the better is often appreciated amongst the cracking-knee club members.

This ultra light binding is solid on the board while simultaneously allowing for more movement, more freedom and more tweakability.

Tester’s Verdict

Stella PenttiWhitelines

“You’d probably be fine sleeping with these bindings attached to your feet and still manage to not have sore feet the next day, that is the level of comfort the Salomon Hologram bindings provide. The super soft heelcup does feel a bit odd at first but once you’re used to it, it seems like the most natural thing ever.

I’ve ridden the Hologram bindings before, and this year’s model was as good as ever. They work as brilliantly for cruising the piste as for riding powder and hitting any odd side-hits around. What never ceases to amaze me is how these bindings are equally comfortable while also providing great response. The fact that they are easily adjustable is also a plus, so if something feels a bit off, it doesn’t take much effort to adjust the bindings.

If you’re looking for a pair of bindings you can spend your days in without feeling the need to complain about how your feet are cramping, these things will keep your feet immensely satisfied.”
