Davide Smania is back, and he’s brought the Drake Snowboards Reload binding with him for this show and tell session with Henry Jackson. A little over 24 hours since the doors to ISPO 2015 opened, and it’s continuing to be a relentless assault on the senses.
Drake is part of the Northwave family which has been around since 1991. Drake is based in the heart of Northern Italy’s famous bootmaking region, and Northwave began making boots after years of building performance footwear. Seeing as though you need more than boots to go snowboarding (the board and bindings help…) Northwave started Drake in order to make high quality, yet affordable bindings and boards.
Drake has over ten years of experience and all their products are designed with input from their team riders.
The Reload binding is a perfect set of straps to team up with the Northwave Decade boot we saw earlier. A freestyle focus means you can concentrate on keeping your flex where it counts, and considering how light the Reload’s are – you’ll need to pay attention to make sure you don’t end up in the stratosphere.
