Union Asadachi

After first stumbling across these bindings while ago, I was intrigued. Polished wood bindings looked awesome, and they would make a great kitschy combination to go with my Salomon Sick Stick. I wanted a pair of higher end, responsive bindings and these fit he bill perfectly. I had a little laugh after finding out the Japanese translation of Asadachi is…

Burton Cobrashark

The Burton Cobrashark is an interesting binding. Like some of the similar technine bindings, they have some unique highbacks. The highbacks actually wrap around, so the idea is that you can flex/press/tweak easier than you can on bindings with regular highbacks. Combined with the much larger ankle strap, tweaking these bindings should be a breeze. Make sure you get the…

Flow Five

Flow Bindings are very good at dividing people. One one side you have people who use them and swear by them, and on the other you have people who would never go near them. Personally I would not go near them, but I have friends who ride them and don’t see what all the hate is about. On the positive…
