2023 Now Brigade Snowboard Bindings
It’s time to up the ante and enhance your entire snowboarding experience as you currently know it with the Brigade. If freestyle is your realm, then the Brigade is where it’s at. Don’t even hesitate.
Flex Rating – 6/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Flushcup Technology – Designed to hold boots even without a highback, these have a flush inner surface where the highback meets the heelcup. This gives direct energy transfer between boot and binding.
Hanger 2.0 Nylon Reinforced with 30% Glass Fiber – This baseless design allows for uninterrupted board flex, with rigid I-Beam wall sections that transfer energy to the board's edges.
Post – Nylon with 50% Glass Fiber
Combo Mounting Disc - 4x4 - Channel
Channel Compatible – Sold Separately
FM Highback – Prerotated 10 degrees with a minimalist design, a higher medial side to follow leg angles, and medial and lateral notches for added torsional flex.
Asym SIEVA Ankle Straps – The Asym SIEVA combines the design aspects of the SIEVA straps with the benefits of the Flipit straps. By using the same manufacturing methods as the SIEVA, they've added a TPU reinforcement on the lateral side for extra support. The Asym SIEVA can be used like the regular Flipit straps: just switch your ankle straps to the other foot and change your support setting.
3D Contour Toe Straps – If it's grip you're after, look no further. This strap is not only super grippy, but it is also moldable and can be used either on the tip or top of your boot.
NOW Tool-less Adjuster Straps
PA66-GF Buckle Levers – Made with the same high grade nylon and glass fiber blend found in Now posts and discs. This material is light and strong.
Skate Tech – Inspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns, major components of Now's system mimic both the function and description of skateboard trucks. The Hanger powerfully transfers energy input from the straps to the bushings and onto the edges of your board. The Kingpin acts as a fulcrum, magnifying this energy through leverage. Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by the flexing and bending of their baseplate, forcing you to crank your straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer highbacks. This all leads to more foot fatigue and pain. NOW Bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the board's edges. They simply transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable, longer.
Highcup Compatibility – Compatible with all NOW hangers. Low profile for extra flexibility. Street, park and pow.
Bushings – Available in Medium (45 Shore)
Hinge Connector - Hinge design allows strap to move out of the way. Stop mechanism, prevents floppy strap. Minimalistic and strong.
New Ladders for 2022 - Curved out at base, to keep them out of the way. Sleeker profile and Angled sides for cleaner look/feel. Cold temp and impact tested
