Switchback bindings continue to be the brand of choice for the brothers Helgason, both of whom have their own pro model. No prizes for guessing who the Switchback Halldor Pro is made for, or where its strengths lie.
“Halldor still favours the ‘wrapback’, a winged highback that partially wraps around your calf muscle”
Halldor Helgason still favours the ‘wrapback’, a winged highback that partially wraps around your calf muscle on the outside of each leg. If you’ve been having trouble holding a nosepress for the full length of a box or rail, this will give you a little extra support that could make all the difference.
Not sure if that’s your bag, though? No problem – as with any Switchbacks, you can swap out the highback for a more conventional one. You can then revert to the winged version when you’re feeling like a park session, or even forego the ‘back entirely and have a surfier shred in the pow. The process is entirely tool-free, and couldn’t be simpler.
