Switchback Ethan Morgan Pro 2015-2016 Snowboard Binding Review

Sehr gut, buddy

The Details:

Bataleon’s sister binding company hasn’t been around for long, but it’s made a big impact in that time. Their modular approach (pick your own combination of baseplate, highback and straps) has proven popular, of course, but they also offer signature set-ups based on the preferences of their top team riders.

The Switchback Ethan Morgan Pro binding was made with the input of everyone’s favourite German-American shredder. He’s favoured the ‘Wrapback’ winged highback, which comes in handy when you’re pressing the hell out of a rail or ledge.

Also present is the ST baseplate pad which has even padding throughout, and the new Eames Straps which are sturdy and solid.

As a finishing touch, the binding features glow-in-the-dark materials that are bound to liven up any night-time rail mission. Obviously if that – or any other element of Ethan’s set-up – isn’t for you then you can always change up any part of the binding, as well as its colour.

TESTER’S VERDICT: 
Duthie – Whitelines

“Like all Switchback bindings, the Switchback Ethan Morgan Pro isn’t the lightest or most hi-tech model that you can get your hands on. However, in this case it’s no bad thing; I’m not sure I’d like a modular design to feel any less sturdy and substantial than this.

You don’t need to be hitting Ethan-sized features to use his bindings, but they’re clearly up to the task if that’s what you’re after. Plus they’re comfy, so it’s all good.

It’d be nice if it came in a slightly bigger size, but anyone with regular-sized feet will get on with these.”
