Product details

Summary

The A-8 is designed for all-mountain performance. This binding is precise and aggressive for the snowboarder that demands the most from their bindings. The Reversible Ankle Strap provides two riding positions. Ride with the stiff part of the strap on the top for a more aggressive feel or swap the straps so the soft part is on top for more flexibility and lateral movement. The A-Series aluminum chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum with less rigidity than previous designs. The cored nylon highback reduces weight while still providing a responsive ride. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. Integrated rubber PODS make for an even smoother ride and the TPU basepad damps out high-speed vibrations. The A-8 is designed for an advanced rider looking for all-mountain performance.
