  #2  Snowboard Binding Survey  Posted 27/09/2018 @ 09:43
Hi everyone,

I'm a skier, but I decided to try snowboarding last year and really enjoyed it. My only complaint was that the bindings were super annoying to keep taking on and off, and it slowed down my whole experience. Skiing felt a lot more efficient. This year I'm taking a design tech course and I wanted to design some type of fix for snowboard bindings to make them easier to take off and put on. I have a few ideas, but it would really help if some of you filled out this survey!

Did you try any of the existing step-in binding systems?
Flow, Burton Step-on etc. and also look at some of the previous systems that existed and are no longer made - Clickers, Burton Step-ins etc. for design ideas

For me, I'm not fussed about a few extra seconds on strapping in, it's more about the feel and performance of the boot/binding combination and of course the overall cost of the package.

There have been other types in the past and I think burton (maybe burton?!) have reintroduced step in bindings.

Personally I’ve never had an issue with traditional bindings. I can understand that as a beginner they can be fiddly and the whole sitting down and having to roll around onto your knees whilst struggling to fasten or unfasten your bindings isn’t exactly very glamourous or fun, you get use to it.

I rarely sit or kneel down to fasten or unfasten and will just do it on the move.

Totally understand your perspective going from a skier to a boarder, especially if you’re an experienced skier. I’m both so I understand where you’re coming from. It’s just a thing that most people get use to with time Airport transfers to the 3 Valleys from Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Chambery. 10% discount for forum members enter GB10

I just strap in standing up, unless its steep and then I sit down taking in the view!
