These essential snowboarding tools secure a snowboarder's feet to their snowboard, preventing their feet from slipping off the board and throwing off their balance as they snowboard. As with other snowboarding equipment, different types of snowboard bindings exist for people of varying body types.
Snowboard bindings can be fitted according to your body type, whether you're a man, woman or have a small or large body structure. Since you have to wear boots while snowboarding, you need to take that into consideration when getting fitted for snowboard bindings.
So, what brand is the best known for high quality snowboard bindings? Many snowboarding enthusiasts favor the Union Binding Company. It's thanks to their commitment in producing snowboard bindings that actually fit aspiring and avid snowboarders the way they're supposed to fit. Over a period of six years, Union Bindings fostered bindings technology dedicated to improving the strength, shape and weight of Union snowboard bindings. Their first venture into the world of creating snowboard bindings netted them a zero percent return rate with fellow snowboarders. That successful run contributed to the creation of their newfangled manufacturing process, which they still use to this day.
Snowboard bindings come in two forms: the more traditional two-strap bindings and bindings designed for rear-entry strapping. Two strap bindings use an ankle strap and a toe strap--Union snowboard dindings often come in this form. These bindings also have highback and rotatable parts within its center, which secure the bindings to a snowboard. Bindings of the rear entry form straps in a snowboarder's foot after their foot slides in through the back of the bindings, where they can later snap it into place.
The most important factor in choosing snowboard bindings is how a snowboarder will be able to adjust their stance--right? The Union Binding Company created a system which allows for the easy adjustment of a bindings for a rider's feet. This system is referred to as their patented "TrueFit" strap system. This technology includes multi-position toe and ankle straps, which keep a snowboarder's feet locked in and properly aligned. Union bindings are compatible with most snowboards using a four by four and three hole mounting system.
