Forum’s binding line has really stepped up this season, with the Platform V1.8 sat near the top of their teched-out tree of badass bindings. A minimalist fibreglass reinforced baseplate, aluminium heelcup and cored highback delivers instant toe to heel response whilst allowing tweaky flex. Response is all well and good, but these are also comfy: padded in all the right places, with decent straps, your feet should be happy in the V1.8. Forum have made the most of their new step-brother, as can be seen with the New Crap toe strap. You know we’re fans of these, so we won’t bang on any more about it other than to say they ain’t crap! And they’re about as adjustable as a binding can be.
