Switchback bindings are the brainchild of Halldor and Eiki Helgason, and the pair have definitely created a brand that resonates with their style of explosive and dynamic riding. The Destroyer is a freestyle focussed binder with the chops to keep up as you’re popping and playing round the mountain.
The less parts you have, the less things there are to break, and this is where the Destroyer will smash the competition. You don’t want to be left holding half your toe strap as you’re getting the all clear to drop in do ya…? Tool-less adjustment and the ability to interchange parts at the drop of a hat will keep you from being left high and dry at the top of the in-run.
“Playful mid-backs are perfect for tweaking and jibbing around, they offer more flexibility and feel through the binding”
Soft and malleable ankle straps conform round your boot to offer extreme comfort, they’re fully adjustable too so no matter which brand you’re rocking you’ll be hot to trot. The pre-curved straps make it quicker and easier for you to crank down, less waiting time = more riding time.
The baseplate is a blend of nylon and glass fiber to make certain that you’re getting a neat balance between keeping it tough and durable, and making sure it’s still lightweight.
Playful mid-backs are perfect for tweaking and jibbing around, as they offer more flexibility and feel through the binding. Bonus points for ladies and smaller riders as they’ll fit better to lower and littler boots. They’re softer flexing as well, so aren’t going to punish you if you’re making mistakes or twitching out whilst you’re riding.
