Because snowboard bindings are the only thing connecting
the snowboarder to the board, it's important for safety and peace of
mind for the snowboarder to know he has a good set. Learn as much as
possible about the various types and styles before making a purchase.
Ask friends and fellow boarders what they prefer and do research on
the Internet as well.
The most popular form of snowboard bindings for soft boots is the two
strap set up. This is also known as a rear entry set up. The majority
of snowboard bindings with soft boots use this system. The other kind
of system it involves step bindings, but these are not readily available
unless used with hard boots.
Snowboard bindings come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. The
size is determined by the size of the boot. Manufacturers binding sizes
will vary, so consumers should double-check they are purchasing the
right binding for their boots.
