2023 Now Pilot Snowboard Bindings
If park laps or deep-ass face shots you’re after—the PILOT is our high-performer that will most definitely take you on one hell of an epic shredventure.
Flex Rating – 6-7/10 (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
Flex Hinge 2.0 Highback – Pre-rotated 10 degrees, with a higher medial side to follow your leg angles, a lateral hook for added support, and a flex hinge that dampens chatter and eliminates calf-bite. 15mm Higher than the original Flex Hinge.
Freestyle Flipit Ankle Straps – Now has added two layers of EVA to this strap. It is cushy, yet supportive, and has traditional stitch-and-turn construction with an injected spine sandwiched between EVA and fabric.
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) and Hard (55 Shore)
Hinge Connector - Hinge design allows strap to move out of the way. Stop mechanism, prevents floppy strap. Minimalistic and strong.
