Switchback Bindings Site is Now Live

If you were dropped on your head as a child and struggled to comprehend the ins and outs of the new binding brand, Switchback, fear not. They’ve just unleashed their new website and enlisted the help of their riders to break down the badness…

That being said, we’re worried having Ethan Morgan try to explain them might do more harm than good. That being that being said, though, we saw him at Freestyle.CH and he looks like he’s been working out – the kid’s neck was like a frickin’ tree trunk – so we might have to reel in the mocking as he might decide to Chuck Norris our asses… Anyway, here’s the lowdown on the Switchback Bindings website:


We are very pleased to announce that the Switchback Bindings website is online now! Customers can go to the site and experiment with color combinations using the “Create Your Own” tool. They can browse our team and check out the pro models and pro colorways, watch videos on how to put the bindings together, find a local dealer and much else besides… 

And, to reiterate, if the whole Switchback hype passed you by, here’s what this innovative binding system is all about…

We had watched the trend for snowboarding with no high backs develop over a couple of years spearheaded by sick riders on both the street and in powder. Street riders took off their high backs to make their riding more like skateboarding, whereas powder hounds were going for the surf feel.

We noticed that removing your highbacks takes time and requires tools and that was enough to put many people off trying it out. There was no need for this, so we set out to develop a binding where the high backs would pop out. Of course removing the high back means that the riders feet sit slightly further back in the binding so we developed a no back insert to keep the boot centered in the binding. The no back inserts are included for free with every baseplate.

Once we had started down this road, we thought; “why should you need tools to adjust the fit?” We then developed a system for the straps, footpads and high back forward lean, where everything can be adjusted on the spot without needing any tools. In fact, the only time you need a screwdriver is to attach them to the board!
